Hey everyone!

 

As you are probably aware, at the heart of Spotify, and our Community, is Music: listening, curating, producing, and of course, discussing it.

 

After the successful first edition, the Community Music Chat Team is pleased to welcome upcoming artists for submitting their new releases to the second edition of Artists Wanted: Share Your Talent With The Community.

 

Note - You can find here results of the first 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 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.

  • Where are you based:
  • Main genre of music:
  • Describe your sound/music in a few words:

Many thanks to the moderators for the great initiative of calling to action many talented, undiscovered (for now) and (still) underrated musicians. I appreciate letting me participate in this event and am grateful to anyone considering listening to my songs and finding it worth their while.

  • Who are your musical inspirations: Radiohead, Thom Yorke, Queens Of The Stone Age, Josh Homme, Jack White, Jeff Buckley
  • Is there anything else you'd want to add to help users to get to know you better: I don't consider myself a musician. I'm practicing making songs in search for a better understanding of the music I love to listen to. I'm also hoping that this will allow me to be part of the music community, while getting closer to actually talented artists and being able interact with them. I'm constantly striving to get better and find motivation in all my shortcomings: "Scrapping the bottom of the barrel for any drop of inspiration", ergo Barrelly Ego

Wow Bells is really awesome song great work

That is so nice of you to say. Thank you very much. It means a lot coming from someone with those musical skills. "Sirens" is such a well crafted piece of art and a whole experience from the beautiful artwork to the haunting sounds and melodies that could easily go alongside Mark Korven's OST for Robert Eggers' "The Lighthouse". But I just might have a soft spot for good film music. Definitely checking out the rest of your work. Easy follow on Spotify.

  • Artist/Band name: Lisa and the F.I.X.
  • Where are you based: Rotterdam, Netherlands

  • Artist/Band name: Nevaria
  • Where are you based: Bayreuth, Germany
  • Main genre of music: Melodic Metal
  • Describe your sound/music in a few words: NEVARIA refreshingly evolved their independent sound with elements from electronic music and “Reckless”, like the album before, was mixed and mastered by André Hofmann (Nothgard, Wolfchant, New Hate Rising). Focusing on just two songwriters provides a real boost in creativity and the mix of hard guitars and refreshing, electronic vibes, enthroned by Tanja Schneider’s imposing voice, is impressively convincing. Driving synth arpeggios, which already take on house or trance-like features, are paired here with beats and natural harsh guitar riffs, which provide the necessary hardness. In the sharp-tongued lyrics, Tanja Schneider processes her personal experiences in the usually already hard work of early intervention for disabled young children, which reached yet another new dimension with the pandemic’s onset in March 2020.

I had a hard time there, because of my Vietnamese descent. My environment was very white, and I have experienced a lot of racism. That’s why songwriting became my safe haven, an outlet for my feelings. I hope my music gives you a glimpse in my diary.
