Hometown Sounds

The local music scene is burgeoning with original acts that ebb and flow, from post-punk to folk, indie rock to blues and beyond.

Perseverance & Passion

Perseverance & Passion

Harrisburg is home to an array of local musical talent. When it comes to the hip-hop and R&B scene, local artists find a void in being able to reach the people of the city with their original works. Sure, there’s the 717 Video Music Awards, a yearly local awards showcase that spotlights the musical talents of the local hip-hop and R&B artists in the Harrisburg area, but aside from that, there isn’t much exposure and support for these hardworking, dedicated artists who look at their musical passions as more than just a hobby, but as an actual way of life. r this reason, Harrisburg Magazine spoke to five local hip-hop and R&B artists and groups to get their thoughts on the music scene in Harrisburg and to hear their stories of how they started their music careers and developed the passions that they have for it.

In-Home Artist Spaces

Few things seem more romantic than the idea of an in-home studio – a place to create, a refuge from the world. Three area artists and a writer know that the creative life has its rigors, but the joy of stepping into a studio all your own makes the sacrifices worthwhile.

The Badlands, Crazy Horse, Wine and More... South Dakota

The Badlands, Crazy Horse, Wine and More... South Dakota

Is there another state richer with iconic, true blue American sights and spectacles than South Dakota? From Rushmore’s imposing granite noggins to the still-emerging magnificence of the Crazy Horse Memorial – and the desolate glory of the Badlands – South Dakota typifies this country’s outsized, go-big-or-go-home grandeur. But to focus only on the western side of the state, where those justifiably famous attractions reside, is to lose out on the gentler pleasures to the east. Instead, begin your tour in Sioux Falls, working west along I-90 – and following this guide to South Dakota’s Unmissable Top 10.

Painter Applies Extraordinary Skills to Portraits and Landscapes

Painter Applies Extraordinary Skills to Portraits and Landscapes

As painter Mark Topp discusses the elements of his craft, both comprehensible and oblique phrasing peppers his speech. There is “You learn by doing.” Or, “I do my best work when I’m not even thinking about it.” And, “You need to think through the materials…the painting and the painting experience are one.” None of it surprises those who know Topp, a 2008 émigré to the Harrisburg area.
