I (Joshua) give priority to submissions sent through the form below. I really do look at, listen and check out every submission that comes through this page. If you took the time to find us, read through this page, and fill out the form; I respect that and strive to honor your effort by listening to your music and responding as soon as I am able. However, if you just send me links and don’t take the time to introduce yourself or include any type of message; I will delete your submission without listening.
If you are a PR firm email list blasting me and bragging about the million plays your artist received on Spotify and all the press features in major publications your artist has garnered, I will most likely delete the email. I care the most about the unknowns… and my time is very limited. However, I sometimes listen anyway and will share to social media if it jams; don’t expect me to take the time to write about it.
With all of this in mind, there are other ways to submit your music which you might find more convenient if you use one of the following services. I list these because I have been an indie artist/producer since 1999 and I also help small labels, bands and artists with their PR, marketing and websites; I have used these services (and other tools) to help my clients reach more music blogs, podcasts and radio stations.
- Fiverr: Freelancing through this service for several years, I am currently a Level 2 seller, have a very high rating I work hard to maintain as well as deadlines to meet so I spend a significant amount of time here. Significant = I am responding to PR firms and artists daily and I always have a queue of orders I have to deliver by a specific date.
- musicSUBMIT: We have been partners with musicSUBMIT for many years so I also spend a bit of time listening to the artists submitted through this service. musicSUBMIT gives us 50 cents for every submission we screen (even if it is rejected) so there is incentive for me to respond quickly. I have spoken on the phone with one of the heads a couple of times and they are good people on a good mission.
