Want your music in this collection? Well, we do too!

The first round of submissions has closed. Thanks to all the musicians who submitted! Next round is TBD.

During a submission period, upload 1-3 full-length tracks that are representative of your overall work to the submission form. The tracks should be from a full album or EP released within the last 2 years that you have the rights to license. More details are at our FAQ.

A panel of jurors from the Austin music community will select the 50 best albums/EPs based on quality, diversity, regional promotional activity, and general connection to the Austin music scene. Selected musicians will be awarded $200.00 and the Library will receive the right to stream their album/EP for a 3-year term.

If you’re selected, you will be contacted with instructions on how to join Electric Lady Bird. You must agree to:

  • upload the remainder of your album/EP
  • Library licensing terms, and
  • submit an invoice for payment.


If you have questions not answered in the FAQ, please email electric.lady.bird@austintexas.gov.
