A few weeks ago, we teamed up with Taylor Evans of StylishlyTaylored to highlight musicians that walk the streets of our city and give them an opportunity to showcase their music, and experiences in Baltimore at The Motor House, a space dedicated to celebrating “the artistry of our city.” By featuring artists of different backgrounds, genres, and ages, we saw this event as an opportunity to bridge a social gap through the intersection of music, social media, and community. We had so much fun with the musicians that we wanted to share more about them here, along with some photos from the evening.
