Calling the city of Seattle any time soon? When they put you on hold, you’ll be able to hear a mix of Seattle artists because, as the mayor says between songs “Seattle enjoys an amazing and diverse music scene.”
For those of you with no business to tend to, though, you can still hear their stream of hold music via www.seattle.gov/OnHold/.
I just checked it out for a few minutes. The first song I heard—a world music dance track—was a mystery to me. After that, they played an operatic number. Also a mystery. Sadly, they don’t identify the artists. But if you like what you hear, you can visit the website, where they list the songs included in the current mix. Right now there’s KJ Sawka featuring Blake Lewis, Joshua Morrison, Bill Anschell, Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra, Son Jack Jr., Matt Weiner and Del Rey, and more.
