Artists Wanted Edition No 5 - Submissions

Hey everyone!

 

After a massive fourth edition, the Community Music Chat Team is pleased to welcome upcoming artists for submitting their new releases to the Fifth Edition of Artists Wanted: Share Your Talent With The Community.

 

Note - You can find here the winner of the fourth edition.

 

How does it 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 May 30 to June 12 (Midnight Pacific Time)

Community vote: from June 20 to June 26 (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.

 

Submissions for Edition No 5 are now closed

You can vote now for your favourite song HERE.

Hello @Nevertitled 

 

I'm afraid that you posted your submission after the limit date. We can't take it in count for this edition. The next edition (No 6) will be in September. I suggest you submit again your song at this time.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Best regards from the Community Music Chat Team.
