Submit your music to our weekly XRAY FM radio show

PDX Pop Now! hosts a radio show that airs every Thursday from 6-7pm.


Submission for the 2015 PDX Pop Now! Compilation is now CLOSED!

Thanks to all the bands that have participated this year! By uploading your track, you’ve helped us support local music! What happens now you may if you’ve submitted a track? After receiving all of the submissions, all 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 in April. 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

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
