January 21st was the debut of “Sounds of PDX”, a new show on Portland Radio Project hosted by Luke Neill. On Sounds of PDX, we plan to explore topics like music production, writing, artists you should know, and much more! To help launch the show, recording artist Berahmand stopped by to co host Luke. The theme of the show was “Connecting with Music”. Berahmand brought in a selection of songs that represent his connection to music including David Bowie, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, and some of his original recordings.
Thanks to Sarah Neill most of the interview was broadcast on Periscope which made for a very interactive experience with the listeners. Enjoy the podcast below to hear music from Berahmand and get a glimpse into the mind of one of Portland’s most original artists.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
