Artists Wanted Edition No 13 - Submissions

Hey everyone!

 

Time is flying so fast. Christmas is a few weeks from us. The Community Music Chat Team would be pleased if upcoming artists could offer a gift to the whole Spotify Community by submitting their new releases to the Thirteenth Edition of Artists Wanted: Share Your Talent With The Community.

 

Artists Wanted

 

How does "Artists Wanted Edition No 13" 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 (from 2023) 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 November 13 to December 3 (Midnight Pacific Time)

Community vote: from December 11  to December 17 (Midnight Pacific Time)

 

Where to participate?

 

We'll hand it over to you, artists on 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 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, in Spotify, as in Social Medias. 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.

 

WARNING : Submissions posted after the limit date or song from the previous years, won't be taken in count.

 

Good Luck Everyone...

Thanks for your submission. Unfortunately, as mentioned in the submission post, the song submitted is too old for being accepted.

    I restarted my music journey in March 2023 after a 15-year break and an adult ADHD diagnosis. My path included sound engineering and electronic music production courses, working as a sound technician in a major music venue in Turin, Italy, and as an assistant for TV networks. Losing my last job was a turning point, leading me to pour my soul and energy into music, my true calling. This not only improved my well-being but also made me seriously consider my future as a musician, showcasing my tracks in some successful DJ sets.

Sounds like a wicked idea to support each other!

 

My name's Warwick Smith, I'm based in Sydney, Australia and I make experimental "emo" music. That includes a variety of punk, rock, pop, alt and hip hop.

 

My musical inspirations are genre defying bands like Waterparks, Panic! At The Disco and Glass Animals; I love the idea of staying liquid.

 

You can find me on Instagram by the name @notwarwicksmith

 

Hopefully you find something in my music you can enjoy!

 

This is my newest song, Nailbiter, it's a pop-punk / synth inspired song about being genre defiant!
