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...

Hello Spotifantastic

 

Hello @BBsing 

 

Thanks for your submission. Unfortunately, as mentioned in the main post, songs submitted have to be from 2023. So your submission of a song from 2016 can't be accepted.

 

You said that you have a Christmas EP coming tomorrow, so maybe you can submit one of the songs if they are not covers ?

Party & Destroy from Sweden crafts a mix of alternative/experimental electronic rock and indie trance synth pop, molding an energetic and uplifting sound. Inspired by Diplo, they're open to genre suggestions but find labeling their music a bit tricky. Ready to dive into their unique and mood-driven tunes?

    In 1858, Chief Niwot told the European settlers of my hometown, Boulder, Colorado that the area was cursed. “People seeing the beauty of this valley will want to stay, and their staying will be the undoing of the beauty.”  Colorado 1996 - my sophomore EP - reflects on my upbringing in that strange cursed town. Romanticized by the likes of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg for its bohemian cult-like presence yet also disparaged by tragedies such as plutonium poisoning from Rocky Flats and the Jon Benet Ramsey murder. I also write, produce, and mix all my own music.

This song is very nice. It's got a nice upbeat undertone while not being TOO energetic. Heavy latin influence goes very nicely - please make more music!
