Portland, Ore – Mayor Sam Adams today announced the launch of “Listen Local,” a pilot program that replaces the City’s previous on-hold music with music by Portland musicians. The program seeks to highlight the vibrant, diverse and creative character of Portland to callers near and far and shine a spotlight on local musicians.
“From our entrepreneurs to our artists, what starts in Portland tends to be watched – and bought – around the world,” said Mayor Adams. “Portland’s economic prosperity is being built on our innovation and our creativity. Listen Local showcases both.”
Also included on the track list are HUSH roster artists Nick Jaina and Podington Bear
