AT THIS TIME, WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS. The reason? We have so many backed-up that we really need to focus attention on them before adding more to our list. We will update this page and our Facebook when we’re accepting again. Thank you.
Earbuddy fully supports independent artists of all kinds whether through basic reviews or promotion of the band. All that we ask in return for helping to promote your work is that you also help to promote ours with your listeners (social media love, website backlinks, etc.). The more we grow, the more you grow. Earbuddy has different ways to help you make an impact on a larger listening public. Please keep in mind that any music submitted will be SHARED with the Earbuddy staff writers.
When submitting your music, tell us a little bit about the band:
Who? – Who plays in the band? What instruments do you play? Who are your influences?
What? — What’s the story behind the album? What influenced it? What’s next with the band (touring, recording)?
Below are the basic submission types:
Submit Your Song or Video Via Wavo
We provide honest opinions of music. Sometimes, this can work out for the band:
And other times, it may not:
Hey, we all hate being critiqued. And just because we have a certain opinion about your music doesn’t necessarily mean our readers will agree. That’s why we always try to feature AT LEAST one example of your music in the review (audio/video link).
Another way of promoting your band through Earbuddy is our Fresh Wax feature (formerly known as “First Listen”). Fresh Wax will feature your band and give you the opportunity of introducing yourself to our audience through a series of questions and a sample of your music (audio/video sample). If you’re interested in being featured in Fresh Wax, same thing as above — tell us the who’s and what’s and then we’ll shoot you back some of our own TRICKY, WEIRD, PSYCHOTIC questions that will give a different insight into your band.
If you would like to submit your band, please email Earbuddy at [email protected]. If you’re sending us a review submission — put Review Submission in the subject. If you’re sending us a Fresh Wax submission, put that in the subject.
This email is shared by all members of the Earbuddy staff, so please do not send submissions to our individual emails.
