Second Stage Has Moved
Second Stage has moved over to the All Songs Considered blog and will no longer be a daily feature on this page. Second Stage still exists and you can still discover great music from unknown artists. But you'll need to go to the All Songs Considered blog to find it. You'll also be able to download songs from our featured artists directly from the page. We wanted to begin offering music downloads for NPR listeners and the blog seemed like the best place to do it. Hopefully this will make it easier for you to take the music you like most with you.
You can scroll through the All Songs Considered blog to see artists tagged with "Second Stage." Or you can click the link on the right side of the blog page that says "Second Stage" to see all tagged artists together.
If you have questions or comments about Second Stage or any of the music on the site, drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
