Hear It Local is the booking platform for Independent music. We help fans find, fund and book local musicians for their house concerts and parties, and we connect industry professionals with musicians for their venues and events. Our booking platform makes it easy for anyone to book live, independent music.

Why House Concerts Rock:

Hear It Local loves House Concerts. Our music fans and independent musicians do, too.

House concerts are live music concerts held in your home, backyard, or anywhere you please that can range in size from anywhere to 5 people on up. It’s an amazing way to bring your friends together and see live music in a more intimate setting. House concerts also give musicians a way to play great gigs locally as well as fill their touring calendars when they’re on the road.

The Team:

Hear It Local is run by people who love live, independent music.
