Artist Of The Month

Since the birth of the DMMC, our major focus has been supporting local music.  Whether it’s kicking back at our local music festival Gross Domestic Product, discussing all things music In the Birdroom, or rocking out alongside national touring acts at 80/35, we want to continue elevating our talented music scene!

Artist of the Month was a collaborative series between the Des Moines Music Coalition, Iowa Public Radio, and Good Morning Iowa highlighting Iowa musicians with special segments each month. Iowa Public Radio has continued the series as part of their All Access program.  Continue supporting Iowa music by heading to the Iowa Public Radio page and dive into past Artist of the Month acts below!
