Listen Local First, a local music initiative devoted to building awareness and creating opportunities for local musicians and venues, is partnering with Cannon.fm to help launch DC’s first local music streaming app.

Cannon.fm is a free music/radio streaming app and website with content comprised entirely of local musicians, based out of Columbus, Ohio. The goal of the Listen Local First partnership and application is to help embrace this idea and “to create a centralized platform and community for artists and listeners to engage with their local music scene.”

The new application will also allow for local businesses to stream playlists and highlighted tracks of local artists in their businesses, which helps to better promote the talent of DC’s music scene.

Currently the app is in its beta phase. According to a statement from Listen Local First users will be able to search for specific bands, create favorite lists, filter by upcoming shows and create and share playlists with each other in the next few weeks of the roll-out.
