Life As A Black Musician In Portland

Minority populations have made significant contributions to the Rose City’s culture while being systematically excluded at the same time. We must grow together to preserve the communities and culture we want to succeed in Portland.

This issue of Vortex is a conversation about the realities communities of color face in Portland featuring editorials on the first annual Portland Black Music Festival by Farnell Newton and a call to take ownership of the culture we've created by activist and hip-hop artist Glenn Waco.

Plus, explore new artists to watch, Aan's sophomore effort, PDX's best songs of 2016 and more.

Five percent of all pay-what-you-want subscriptions support The Jeremy Wilson Foundation's medical emergency efforts and your local music community.
