Bands, musicians, artists – promote your music – leave a comment

DIY Band Promotion


A few years ago before the internet was as BIG as it is now, I remember thinking about all the bands that were out there playing music that I had never heard of. Bands that I would never hear. I felt out of control.

Sure, there were bands that I loved listening to on mainstream radio and seeing play live in my area, but I was fully aware of the fact that there was no way that I was even getting a fraction of what was really going on musically around the country – or the world for that matter.

Fast forward to the present, and luckily the internet has been a key to helping solve my quandary. I can now easily access bands’ music online, however, the amount of music seems infinite and overwhelming at times, which can also hinder the process of discovering new bands.

I started because I wanted a place online where I could help myself and others discover new music and to spread the GOOD word about bands, musicians and artists – established and new. Signed and unsigned. All genres. Everywhere. I love receiving emails from bands and artists wanting to share their music. I also enjoy publishing their information on

There has been a large volume of news, music and review requests coming into my inbox as of late, and it frustrates me that I can’t publish all of it, as there’s only one me here, and only so many hours in the day.

At this point, my solution to this problem is to ask bands, musicians and artists to please leave a comment (not too long) with information about your music along with a couple links, so that readers can learn about you, listen to you – and hopefully buy your music.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. This is K, one half of the upcoming music production team Splitting Image. I recently produced a new hip-hop instrumental called Trappin Ain’t Dead. The beat is a classic example of hip-hop music with a taste of what is commonly referred to as “trap” music. Trap music is simply hip-hop music that everyone from rough neighbors and the street life can relate to. Rap artists can easily create a hot freestyle or track with this beat.

    Everyone can listen to Trappin Ain’t Dead on the Splitting Image reverbnation music page: Also, listen to the beats by my partner Hood Angel.

    The video for Trappin Ain’t Dead is coming really soon!

  4. This is Really New and Unheard Music.

    I was born into a musical family, but had my families failures put on me at a young age. I was Discouraged from playing or getting into music (In hopes I would pursue a Reliable Career Path).

    This was acceptable up until last year. My mother went in for Thyroid Surgery it was a very emotional moment in our lives. I came home to take care of her and one day she overheard me singing and playing guitar. She asked her husband to Record what she heard for her recovery time.

    Since then a spark came over me and I have unloaded 20 songs and counting onto our list. With My Step Dad, My Real Dad, Friends and other family members contributing this is Really starting to Come together.

    On top of this Current Project I am Working with several bands and dozens of musicians. Creating new songs, melodies, harmonies, Signature Riffs, videos and Always Supporting Fellow Musicians. Forever Grateful for the positive Vibes Moving forward on this New Found Passion. I am finally in the full Throttle Joy that My life Really Needed.

    Music really has a profound effect on us all, I know these songs will connect with you.

    The songs can be found on

    I am always happy to Collaborate and Keep in Touch.

    Thanks for Reading this far :~) Sending everyone my very best and excited to hear back.

  8. Several Conclusions is a spooky Americana project that invokes old ghosts and whiskey soaked roads. In 2008 “songs for the half awake” was released. A dark portrait of a wayward traveler featuring musical saw, banjo and acoustic guitar. Every song sung from the bottom of a bourbon bottle. In 2011 “how we passed” was released a slightly less dark album featuring folk magic and stories of cold rivers and men that fall in love with Banshees. These sounds can be found across the internet on itunes, spotify and many more. The newly created website features adventures in sound and interaction. Give it a listen on a cold grey day and enjoy. Thanks for listening!

  12. “Fans of acoustic music will come to dig Brother Monk. His style of singing is very easy going, steeped in soulful and romantic lyricism. Each of his songs will place listeners in a soothing mood, and the artist has a talent for placing listeners in an emotional frame of mind. These songs will remind fans of unrequited love and passion of the human spirit.

    The acoustics in each of the songs is a signature factor with this artist, and he excels on many levels in making the guitar unique and engaging with each song. His songs have no monotony, and his music delves into the basic essence of human expression and emotional out-pouring. Fans of romantic songs and acoustics will come to enjoy this singer’s talent for playing the guitar with a clear singing voice. This is not to say that his songs are love ballads, but he has a knack for creating music that will touch people’s hearts.”


  13. From humble beginnings rehearsing in a Glue Factory, an old Dentist Surgery, and a studio once used by The Lighthouse Family (until it flooded), Peculiar Disco Moves have evolved into a band that glorifies the trials and tribulations of raw British life within the boundaries of their own unique brand of feelgood, fun, inspiring progressive-pop narratives. We have an exciting upcoming EP release, accompanied by a launch party at the Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle Upon Tyne on 12th April.

    Here are the links to hear their EP (tracks are in order the appear on the EP):

    ‘Automatic Choice’
    ‘What Did You Do Today’

  14. Hey Guys,

    I’m Jack and I’m the lead singer and guitar player of a band called The Grade, we have a couple of demos out and I’d like to see what people think of them, they are in their early stages at the moment to be honest but all feedback will be great!

    We apparently sound like a mixture of arctic monkeys and early muse ( first album ) i think that’s the best album ;)

    Let me know what you think:

  17. Bob Romanus, who played Mike Damone in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, is one half of the musical duo Poppa’s Kitchen. And while his acting résumé certainly brings out the where-are-they-now lookyloos, one listen to the music he makes with partner Steve Feldman turns all comers into believers.
    For decades, Feldman and Romanus have been hand-crafting folk rock songs for their own enjoyment and sharing it in intimate venues. And though their latest album, Just So You Know, maintains this raw intimacy, it also throws open the doors to introduce Poppa’s Kitchen to a much wider audience.

    But words are no match for music – so have a listen. The title track from their latest album, Just So You Know, is a fitting entrée into Poppa’s Kitchen. From the first chord of “Just So You Know,” it feels like we’re being shared the heaviest of burdens, being shown a heart worn threadbare. Throughout, Romanus’ bourbon-soaked confessions ring so familiar that we could confuse them with our own. And the rock hymnal arrangement climbs the steps to a righteous church that echoes of Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Tom Waits.

    The entire album can be heard here: You can also check out or @PoppasKitchen.

  18. I just released my third vocal album, Troubleshoot The Moon, featuring a mix of personal and political songs backed by a funky, folksy, electronic big band soundtrack. For free samples, lyrics, and the latest news, visit (especially if you like Beck, Sufjan Stevens, Santigold, or other eclectic artists!)

  19. Here’s our new single ‘Drowning In The Drought’ which was released on 4th may, please download and give it a listen. We’d love to know what you think:
    The band is based in Salford, England and we’ve been going for five years now. We are currently looking for a drummer and this single was actually done between just two people (Doug: Vox, synth, guitar), and Neil (Bass, vox, drums). Despite being drummerless (we are currently auditioning) we have carried on with just two members (who are the founding members and write all the material) via sheer belligerence and experimentation. We have set up the “Rain City Sessions” as a means of showcasing our songs in a different way (ie adapted versions as we are not a full band at the moment).

  20. Paolo Morena. Live Looper. One Man Band.

    Paolo Morena is one of the most well known and respected faces on the Essex Music scene, and has spent most of his life singing and performing, either in bands or as now, as a solo act.

    When you meet Paolo, and when you see him on stage, it is obvious that he is one of those people born to perform, born to be a musician. He writes beautiful hook laden melodies, and sings them with a passion that is honest and believable. He has that gift of being able to write songs that are very personal, and yet universal at the same time. Listen to “Peace of Mind”, “Mission In Me” and “Oh Yeah’ and you feel the emotion of the lyric – and then listen to tracks like “Queen of The Party Scene” and “Saturday Night” and you hear great story telling that puts a smile on your face.

    In performance, Paolo brings a whole new dimension to his songs as he uses live looping on stage – effectively becoming a one- man band. It is incredibly to watch, and marks Paolo out as a very special and unique performer.

    Please check out Paolo’s new song ‘REVENGE’ .

  21. The Band – Holocene

    We are a Birmingham Based Indie band that formed in September 2011 after discovering a mutual love for music. The band consists of four high school friends which each have an eclectic music taste which contributes to the unique sound we create. Although we do have acquired tastes we do reach common ground on bands such as: Kings of Leon, The Clash, Velvet Underground, The Cribs and Foals; all bands with a predominant guitar sound, which hopefully you’ll see in our track below.

    Flaws In Us All- was recorded over Christmas 2012 at Magic garden studios, Wolverhampton, with Gavin Monaghan (Editors/ Twang).

  23. The Baltic States is an alternative indie band based in North-West, UK. It blends minimal techno, big-beat and IDM with hypnotic, soaring vocal-melodies in order to create an exciting new sound. The band consists of Jev Maligins – a former member of Beat Milk Jugs (TV Records) – and Helen Morrisson, lead-vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with The Wretched Pearls.
    The Baltic States has recently released its debut single, ‘Kontrol’, which has been well-received by both radio and social media platforms, and is currently preparing to take its music directly to live audiences. With evocative visuals and exhilarating collaborations with other first-rate musicians, these performances will be far more than mere duplications of the studio recordings.

    I look forward to good interactions and meeting new fans and people.

  33. I came across your blog, while blog hunting, and you don’t find too many people who can listen to various genres. Obviously you have preferences, and don’t like everything, but my genre is one I feel that you wouldn’t mind, Rap/Hip Hop.

    What I like about my music is the fact that I always talk about something that people can relate to. Hip Hop is boring, and I’m tired of hearing: Sex, Drugs, Money, Killing, etc. No, I’m not a gospel rapper, but my messages stand out from the crowd.

    Another thing I like about my music, is that I don’t use other rappers’ beats. Like I said, hip hop is boring, so I like finding new sounds for people to hear.

    Two more things I like is that I bring comedy into hip hop, because you can’t stay serious 24/7, we all have different emotions. Also I use skits in my songs, It’s one thing to talk about something, but it’s another to bring people to that world.

  34. Bruce LOK – He’s influenced by a wide range of genres from rock, folk, blues, classical, ambient and dub..and would list Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake, Kurt Cobain and Thom Yorke as his main influences.

He has recorded two eps with producer John Henry Poole (Cinematic Orchestra, Jack Panate). Now he’s writing with Arranger and composers Chris Elliott, Kit Wooley and Bruce Wooley on a new e.p that will be taken down a much more darker route with an overall more alternative dub step post rock emotive sound.

  37. Wolf Club Lunar Society hail from the deepest south of the river Thames. Taking inspiration from the city’s sleazy core, they set exacting vivid imagery against techno-coloured monochrome riffs. Cutting their teeth in the darkest back-alley clubs the capital has to offer, their live show is a pure encapsulation of punk rock spirit, sneering at self-restraint, tipping its hat to a time when music was more than aural-beige and your favourite band was a badge of honour.
