Welcome to the CBC Hamilton playlist — a place for great Hamilton music, past and present.

Everyone on this list has a link to Hamilton: from icons like punk stalwarts Teenage Head to relative newcomers like folk duo Dawn and Marra. You'll hear from big acts like the Arkells and up-and-comers like local hip-hop act Canadian Winter. Click here to access the music player.

But there is so much more music to add. We want to grow the playlist and we'd like your help in doing so.

Have a band or a song that you'd like us to add? Email Hamilton@cbc.ca or contact us on Twitter @CBCHamilton and we'll get it on there.

Are you in a band that's from or based out of Hamilton and you want your music on here? Just sign up for a CBC Music profile and send us a link to your page, and we'll add you. Easy.

Periodically, we're going to ask you for your favourite playlists featuring Hamilton artists. From soundtracks to seasons to special events, we want to know what Hamilton artists get you through the day. Watch for that soon.

Happy listening, Hamilton.
