Artist Submission Form

 
  • This is fairly detailed (not all required) and may be used in multiple places, such as in the creation of your artist profile on the site, share during discussion on the live show, added to future blog posts, press releases, etc.  The more you provide, the more we have to promote.  See Fellowcraft's profile as an example here so you get a rough idea of how this may look if/when published.  
  • We appreciate your patience, we currently create/add profiles as we play the artist's music on the show.
  • You don't need to send us your music, we pull it from online when we play it, all you need to do is fill out this form.
Your Name (you, the person filling out this form) *
Your Name (you, the person filling out this form)
This is strictly private, for DC Music Rocks use only, in case we have questions or need to reach you about this submission.
IMPORTANT - LIST BOTH THE ARTIST NAME AND THE PRONUNCIATION PLEASE!! Fans will want to know how to pronounce your name!
What big name popular bands do you sound like? If people have never heard of you, who might they think you sound like that they HAVE heard of?
Is there one? Listeners love this one, please share! Where'd your name come from? What's the story behind it?
First name, nickname (if any), and instrument!
Give us fun stuff, not normal bio stuff!
Any other links you'd want to share? Bandcamp? Other Social Media?
Main Genre *
We call it HARD ROCK if electric guitar uses distortion. Pick just one main genre.
Alright, now if you want, give us all the other ones you use. Seriously, ALL of them, people can search for these terms!
We can add one video to your artist profile. Which one should it be? Recommend a video that's not just an audio file, since they'll have your Soundcloud for audio.
We use Bandsintown (a free app for artists and fans) to continuously display your current upcoming show schedule on this site. If you don't post to bandsintown, it will simply say "no upcoming tour dates" on the site. Public Service Announcement: There are two high profile places we recommend posting your shows to. 1) BANDSINTOWN: This site and some others use this, it's also an app for concert goers to find out about shows they'll like. 2) SONGKICK: Where Spotify pulls upcoming show data from. Links for these available on our resources page, linked from the home page
Not required if we can just grab one from your bandsintown/facebook cover photos. If there's a specific one you prefer, send the link to it here. Nope, can't upload or email it.
I certify this music is CLEAN, I'm aware the FCC does not allow curse words on the radio *
