KWUR played a lot of music from St. Louis this year, and we learned a lot about St. Louis itself while we were at it. As findings from our rigorous research, here are 20 of our favorite local artists. These are some of the most talented, engaging, creative, and friendly people around, so don't forget to look close to home. Music is all around you!
