Bedroom Music Webseries gives viewers a personal look into the lives of musicians in Chicago. Typically when folks say “bedroom music” they mean music that is good background for putting on in your bedroom when getting it on. Or someone may say “bedroom pop” to refer to music produced DIY in a bedroom or closet. In any case, music changes its tune depending on where it is played, and music listened to, or played, in a personal space like a bedroom always has a unique character. In this series Chicago artists grant viewers a charmingly informal yet deeply personal look into their homes for a chat and a serenade cover of a typically “bedroom music” type song.
