Presenting the 2016 PDX Pop Now! Compilation, 42 tracks from all Portland artists!
Presenting the 2016 PDX Pop Now! compilation, featuring 42 tracks from all Portland, OR artists. Known for bringing attention to some of the most talented musicians Portland has to offer, PDX Pop Now! celebrates the 13th compilation dating back to the non-profit’s inception back in 2004.
To date, the yearly compilations have sold thousands of copies through independent record stores and online sales. Each year, a fresh batch of devout music lovers spend hours as dedicated volunteers, sifting through the diverse song selections PDX Pop Now! receives. Music tracks are attained through artist submissions, and are run through a rigorous listening panel comprised of our board members and over 100 volunteers. After making it through the listening panel, final tracks are then selected with attention to diversity, representation, and popularity.
Promoted by Distiller, distributed by CD Baby, produced by Cravedog and mastered by Sky Onion, it’s with much love and appreciation for all of you that we present this year’s PDX Pop Now! compilation. May these smooth jams make for your go-to summer soundtrack.
