Congratulations Des Moines!
We are a city thriving with talented local artists and musicians. After a two week process of submissions and judging, we have narrowed down 44 submissions to a selection of 15 local artists for the CarpeDM Music Mix Volume III! A local jury of music professionals chose the featured songs based on songwriting, musicianship and appropriateness for compilation. The Music Mix is a joint initiative of the Greater Des Moines Partnership and Des Moines Music Coalition to showcase the thriving music industry in Central Iowa. The Music Mix features one song from each artist and it will be promoted at the Des Moines Embassy in Austin, Texas from March 11-19. It will also be promoted at career fairs and out-of-state recruitment events, and available online at
