  • The HUM music collection is curated by a jury of local music advocates, who work to select a diverse collection representing our music community. Submissions are open to music made in Utah within the last 5 years.

  • Submissions should include one example track from the album you’d like to submit (they prefer high-quality masters in FLAC, WAV, or AIFF formats, but they'll also accept high bitrate Mp3, AAC, and Ogg Vorbis) and information about you and your music.

  • HUM pays musicians a one-time honorarium of $200 for albums ($100 for EPs) that are chosen to be included in the collection. To have your music considered for inclusion in the HUM collection, visit
