ArtistsWanted12.jpg

 

Welcome back everyone!

 

After a short break, the Community Music Chat Team welcomes you back to your favorite Community song contest, and invites you upcoming artists to submit your new releases for the next edition of Artists Wanted: Share Your Talent With The Community.

 

After a successfully Summer themed 11th edition this time we will welcome all kinds of musical styles, winner takes it all.

 

How does "Artists Wanted Edition No 12" work?

 

  • On a regular basis, we (the Community Music Chat Team) will post a thread (like this one) looking for submissions, so keep an eye out!
  • Artists participating have to be members of the Community and have a Spotify artist account.
  • Artists are welcome to post their original songs and intros in a comment below (only one comment per band/artist please).
  • Note: If an artist has already participated in a previous edition of this project, they can submit again only with a new release of theirs.

 Questions artists should answer to participate

  • Artist/Band name:
  • Where are you based:
  • Main genre of music:
  • Describe your sound/music in a few words:
  • Spotify link to one of your most recent original song which you'd submit in priority to the Community's users:
  • Handle for one social media of your choice:
  • Who are your musical inspirations:
  • Is there anything else you'd want to add to help users to get to know you better:

The Community Music Chat Team will go through all submissions, and propose a few for the entire Community to vote on. Once the results are in, we'll contact the winner, and they will be featured in our Community blog! 

 

When will submissions and voting occur?

 

Artists submissions: from September 25 to October 16 (Midnight Pacific Time)

Community vote: from October 23 to October 27 (Midnight Pacific Time)

 

Where to participate?

 

We'll hand it over to you, artists in the Spotify Community - post your answers to our questions in a comment below. Don't be shy, we'll be very glad to hear your tracks and read your replies!

 

Note - We ask artists to submit only original songs and not covers. Also, artists should not post/embed videos, as we'd like to keep the ground fair for smaller artists with lesser budgets.

 

P.S. When it comes to choosing the winning artist, we'll give an equal chance to the finalists to gather votes from the forum's users; so don't get discouraged if you enter your submission at a later point and don't gather too many likes in this thread.

 

If a song is selected for being submitted to the Community vote, artists are allowed to mention it to their followers, on Spotify, as in Social Media. Please be fair with all contestants and support participation with our Community by asking them to listen to all submissions.

 

We also reserve the right to refuse songs if the song content is in breech of Community guidelines. Should this happen we'll aim to reach out to you and discuss the decision.

 

Note: Here you can read about the winner of the 11th edition - Des Moines, Iowa-based soulful band The Finesse.
