The Partnership and the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition are excited to announce the CarpeDM Music Mix.

The selection process for the Mix began when nearly 50 Central Iowa musicians submitted a song to a local jury who scored the tracks based on a three criteria: 1) songwriting – the quality of original musical and lyrical compositions, 2) musicianship – execution appropriate to the material, and 3) appropriateness for compilation – lyric content, production quality, and artist activity with the community.

The top 20 songs with the highest score were then in the running to appear on the Mix. The public was then invited to vote for their three favorite songs that they felt best represent the Central Iowa music scene. The songs that appear on the Mix received the most votes.
