With Puget Sounds UW Libraries aims to document the kaleidoscopic nature of music performed and produced in and around Seattle. No style, genre or music culture is excluded. Everything from art rock to hip hop, folk revival to free jazz, classical to opera, freak folk to shockabilly, Latin American folk to Balkan punk is represented in the collection.

This guide is designed to help you navigate through and discover Puget Sounds recordings. If you have questions or would like to donate recordings to Puget Sounds, contact John Vallier.
