How To Send Me Music

Dear musician/label/PR representative,

Thanks for considering me when sending music out.

Please remember that I get sent a lot of music. I love the fact that I get sent music all the time, but because of the amount of tracks, releases, dubs, albums, EPs and music that I get sent, it can be difficult to organise, listen to and keep track of it all.

To get your music heard by me in the best way, and for me to keep my sanity when receiving and organising music, I’ve put together some guidelines on what you should and shouldn’t do when sending me music.

Please Do Not

Please Do

It Would Be Nice


None of these guidelines are difficult to follow, and most are just common sense.

If you can follow these simple guidelines, then I will be able to easily file and listen to your music, and I should be able to feedback to you if I can.

If you don’t hear back from me, then you can safely assume that your music was not for me. It may have been good, but often I am on the look out for something exceptional. This is just the nature of dealing with such large amounts of music.

If you are interested in more ways to get your music out there, I also created How To Self Release for those looking to successfully release music (from them or others) and get it out there effectively.
