If you opt for advertising, we guarantee your presence on our channels. However, for transparency reasons, there will be a small and almost seamless indicator that it is for advertising purposes. Please refer to our price list for more information.
Submitting a press release will result in its publication on our website and its distribution to various music news blogs that may choose to pick up your story or not. Our press release system, similar to a Cision blast or press push, will allow your article to appear on our site and give you the chance to reach other blogs and media outlets. Please see our pricing information for more details.
Submissions are sent directly to our editorial team for review. After we review your submission, you will receive a comprehensive assessment of your song, story, article, or release. While we cannot guarantee that your feature will appear, we will provide you with an impartial and honest review of your work that will help you advance to the next level of your career. Submit now to take advantage of this opportunity.
