Hey, Quick Sponsored Thing: PR Service to Get Your Music Featured in Blogs & Spotify Playlists

Our friends at Omari are really good at helping artists get heard and listed in cool indie blogs and playlists. They've worked with big acts (Judah & the Lion) and bedroom artists alike (which is feasible cuz service starts at $77). Anyway, take a look. Disclaimers: it's an affiliate link, and yeah, they're good.

If you're tired of pitching your music yourself, if you finally want to find your audience, or if you just like us, click here to learn more.

Hey, you. I’m writing a book on how to promote indie music.

It’s called How to Promote Indie Music. Pretty straightforward.

Anyway, it’s meant to answer the questions I usually get asked by artists – stuff like:

“What platforms should I do promo on?// How do I do it? // Where should I submit my music?// Do you really know Sandra Bullock?”

Out August 2020. You can sign up here for sneak peeks.
