HearRVA is a platform that aims to bring together many genres of Richmond music and its history. HearRVA has created a space to learn about new albums and events happening in and around the city. We want people to discover us because we promoted their favorite artist, but stay because of the wide range of quality Richmond artists that we spotlight. If someone leaves our platform or event without finding another artist that they can support, we have failed. We want HearRVA to be the tree that connects all the branches of Richmond’s music scene.
We aim to build the HearRVA brand into the premier music outlet for central Virginia. We are working towards hosting live music events, exclusive online content, creating merchandise that unites the music community and supports the city's youth in their pursuit of artistic growth.
You can always HearRVA here.
Behind The Scene
Our Richmond residency started in 2006, but honestly, the start of HearRVA didn't start here... or even in this country. We left the city, our families and jobs to travel the world for 11-months.
While bouncing around the globe, it was easy to find so many cities that were inspiring. The things that endeared us to these places could all be found back in Richmond:
Berlin's art scene: Check!
The water flowing through Rome and Paris: Check!
Historical significance: Check!
After moving back and settling back into the same house and the same job, we saw Richmond with a whole new appreciation for the city and its people. The whole world should hear all the amazing things Richmond, Virginia has to offer.
The deep history of the founding and turmoil of this country, the colorful art you see as you drive around, the James river, and of coarse the music of the city. We want to share all of this with the people that live in our city. We learned that you can live here and be oblivious to its powerful culture.
Now those people can discover and hear RVA, here.
