Nightcrossings Local

Nightcrossings Artists from Kansas

Radio Kansas shares the musical expression of Kansas artists right alongside multi-platinum international acts. If you’ve already produced a CD of original instrumental compositions, make sure we have it. If your only recordings are demos or YouTube videos, send us a copy and we may have you in our studio for a free, professional session. We’re flattered that many of our session recordings can be found on great CDs available commercially and at iTunes and elsewhere!

Send us, or point us to, a recording giving us an idea of the genres you play. If we think it sounds like Nightcrossings, Tranquility Bass, or NewGrass Valley, we’ll invite you for an in-studio concert and interview! For more information, call Producer Michael Ables at 1-800-723-4657.
