Submissions for the 2016 PDX Pop Now! Compilation are now OPEN!

After receiving all of the submissions, songs are anonymously evaluated by the 100 volunteers on the PDX Pop Now! Listening Committee, as well as the PDX Pop Now! Board of Directors. We will send you an email in mid-April letting you know whether or not your song has been selected. At this time, if you’ve been selected, we’ll be in touch about paperwork, high-quality audio files for mastering, and other info we may need. Any questions? Please contact Cervante Pope.

Wanna know more about the Compilation Submission process?

Local musicians can submit one track each, and all genres are encouraged to apply. Each year PDX Pop Now! assembles over 40 tracks representative of Portland’s thriving music scene, for a two-disc compilation.

As a PDX Pop Now! production, tracks are narrowed down through a long established democratic process. Songs are attained solely through artist submissions, and are then anonymously run through a rigorous listening panel comprised of board members and over 100 volunteers. After progressing from the listening panel, final tracks are then selected with attention to diversity, representation and popularity.

To Be Considered

  • You must upload one original song
  • Only one song will be considered for the compilation
  • You must be a Portland based artist
  • Be the rights holder of the song you submit

Join the 2016 Listening Committee!

Listening-Comm-Button

As a complement to the annual festival, each year PDX Pop Now! produces a two-disc compilation curated as one-part fundraiser, one-part shameless promoter of Portland musical talents. 

As a PDX Pop Now! production, the compilation includes a democratic aspect. Music tracks are attained solely through artist submissions, and are then run through a listening panel comprised of our board members and 100 plus volunteers. After surviving the listening panel, final tracks are then selected with attention to diversity, representation and popularity.

By signing up to be on the listening committee, you are expressing interest in helping to curate the 2016 PDX Pop Now! Compilation. We’re taking song submissions through February, and then it’s the Compilation Listening Committee’s time to shine. We do our listening and voting in March. Once that’s done, we get everything ready in April and May, and put the Comp out in June.

APPLY HERE.
