Artists Wanted Edition No 15 - Submissions

Hey everyone!

 

Time is flying so fast. First quarter of 2024 is done and today, on this April 1st and Easter Monday, The Community Music Chat Team brings to you not an April Fool but the opportunity for upcoming artists to share their work with the whole Spotify Community by submitting their new releases to the Fifteenth Edition of Artists Wanted: Share Your Talent With The Community.

 

Artists Wanted

 

How does "Artists Wanted Edition No 15" 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 this year or the last 3 months of the previous year) 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 April 1 to April 21 (Midnight Pacific Time)

Community vote: from April 29  to May 5 (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 too old, won't be taken in count.

 

Good Luck Everyone...

The Beatles, can't imagine music without them. But also Pink Floyd, 1990s grunge/alternative, Kate Bush, Elvis Costello and almost everyone we've come across.

 

Day for Night is an independent project of Anggun Gunara and friends he met along the way.

Hi @7ContinentCarl,

 

We appreciate the submission; it was definitely pleasant to listen to!

 

It seems, however, that the song was released in 2022, which isn't recent enough for it to qualify for this edition of AW.

 

Thank you for your understanding, and I hope you have a good day regardless!

Welcome to the Community and thanks for your submission.

 

However, you are allowed to submit only one song per session of Artists Wanted. So, be kind to chose one of the two songs you have submitted and remove the other.
