Many of us were looking forward to attending concerts by our favorite artists in the Valley this spring. Spanning across genres, musicians from the local scene and ones with international fame were planning on playing shows in Phoenix, with many of them hoping to continue to other cities as part of a national or international tour.

Unfortunately, the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. brought those plans to a halt, with dozens of shows being canceled or postponed until it's safe to convene for concerts again. 

But that doesn't mean that those artists are forgotten — now is a better time than ever to dive into the work of musicians who were hoping to showcase their efforts for their fans this spring. Here are our picks for songs to listen to while social distancing. 

This playlist features the work of indie rock artists like Soccer Mommy and Phoebe Bridgers, experimental musicians like Yves Tumor and Allie X, and plenty more. 

Sit back, relax and find a new favorite artist to listen to while social distancing with the playlist below.
