On Hold Music

Seattle OnHold plays music by local bands on city phone systems. It’s our way to treat callers to a tasty serving of our exceptional music scene. Seattle was the first city to feature local music this way and is thrilled to partner with the creative composers, bands and record labels that make the city of music home.

Suggest a band, browse the archive or subscribe to the podcast to get a new song three to four times per month. Have questions or comments regarding Seattle OnHold? Contact us at (206) 684-7171 or arts.culture@seattle.gov.
