Most things are just better homegrown—tomatoes, herbs and here in San Diego, music.
Many talented musicians call San Diego home and a local website is giving you a taste of the best ones around. It’s called San Diego Homegrown and it’s a one-stop shop for “organic San Diego music.”
San Diegan Gary, who is also known by the moniker Local Wally, started a website back in 1996 that was a sort of guide to America’s finest city. A cat, later-named Wally, walked into his life and helped him create his place as Local Wally.
San Diego Homegrown is an offshoot of the website Local Wally. It’s a site dedicated to local music, but it’s also more than that. The site aims to raise awareness about La Jolla’s .
San Diego Homegrown is offering to donate all money you spend on downloading songs from local musicians off the website to the La Jolla Friends of Seals. You can click here to listen to the songs and download whichever jump out at you. You’ll find hidden gems among our city’s musicians.
If you’re a musician yourself, or know of a band that deserves to be discovered, submit songs to San Diego Homegrown here. The only requirements are that you must be a San Diego resident and that all songs must be original. Bands and musicians don’t have to pay any money to be featured on the site and all the proceeds that people pay to download the music off Homegrown goes right back to the seals.
