Helpful Blogs For The Indie Music Creative
Today's post is brought to you by 6 music blogs with tips on how to assist music creatives and open submission boxes.
Michael Stover- Mr. Stover is know for wearing many writer hats: Rapzilla, Heavy, and Vibe Magazine are only a few places that have the honor of publishing his work. Currently, Michael writes for Dead End Hip Hop (where he penned a lovely interview on me) and Tastecreators. Last year he started sharing tips for artists on the blog section of his site! If you're looking for sound advice about generating a strong, loyal fan base, this post is for you.
Transcending Sound- My girl Amirah Rashidah from Baltimore, MD provides urban music creatives with inspiration, tips, and important information on the music industry in order for them to go beyond the music. One of my favorite TS posts is the list of her favorite music creatives.
The Ikonic Music Blog- Do yourself a favor and stop by Jia McMillian Shipley's site for a couple of clicks. Her music industry education section is really helpful and informative for creatives serious about getting their music off the ground. She accepts submissions too!
These next three websites have missions similar to my own. They are looking to hear from independent artists so please (respectfully) submit music to them!
JessIndieSpot- Jessica Nettles' goal is to expose the creativity of independent artists. We used to see each other around our college campus all the time, unaware of the many similarities we shared. Artists if you're looking for another outlet to submit music, Jess is willing to check you out!
Noah The Producer- Noah is a producer that recently started a blog to be a platform for the underground. He regularly searches for new talent to match with his style of production. Submit to his website to get coverage with an artist's point of view.
Riffs and Rhymes- Roberto Johnson loves music and he loves to write about it. You'll find anything from Hip-Hop to Rock to Soul featured on his blog. He's still pretty new to the game but I'm positive if you send him some music with a quick bio, he'll be sure to check it out.
