What do we have to provide?
We ask very little in return, there is no fee, all we ask is that you provide us with permission to play your tracks you send us, we cannot pay you for the tracks you send, we also ask you tell other people about us through your current fan base.
When you send us tracks, we will ask that you send them in the highest possible quality, we try and maintain good quality content on our station and this is the same with Discover, we would encourage artists to use a recording studio to record the tracks they want to send in, however we may make exceptions after we have listened to your tracks that they are in good enough quality to add to our library.
What are you looking for?
At the moment, we are pretty much open to almost any genre (please see the next question which is genre restrictions), although we mainly play songs from Rock/Pop/EDM/Country, we will be making room on our schedule for any songs outside these areas as soon as we have enough artists in Discover, the best thing to do if you are interested and you do not fit in to any of these genres, get in touch anyway and it will help us work around other genres, we will only allow radio friendly music and none religious material.
We do have a couple of restrictions on Genre’s we can accept, simply because it does not fit with the type of music we play, or because of high volume of submissions for Genre’s that we are finding it difficult to make room for, if you send in music which is one of our restricted genre’s, it will be sadly declined.
- R&B/Rapping (Restricted because we are not known for playing this type of music)
Must we be signed?
We are only interested in providing this to bands/artists who are not signed, this program is designed for small bands who are unsigned, when you become signed, we may remove you from Discover and stop playing your tracks, but this can be discussed after you’ve been signed, but right now, we are not interested in bringing on bands which are already signed.
Do you accept covers?
YES!!! We love to hear what you have in regards to covering other artists and major artists.
How long does it take to decide?
Ultimately, we do have the final say on which bands and solo artists we decide to take on, it may take some time for us to go through any songs we have to listen to, we will let you know as soon as possible.
All band members and solo artists must be 18+, we have the right to remove any tracks from our library, remove you from our discover section (including your page) at any time.
Where can I sign up?
It is very simple, simply get in contact with us, either through our contact form or message us by Twitter or Facebook, if we are already messaging about this and you were just sent this link for more details, sign up can happen within the message already set up.
