Submit Music

Belle_&_Sebastian_-_Books

We encourage indie artists and bands to submit original music to IRC, one of the leading indie and DIY-supportive platforms on the web since 2007 with more than 13 million visitors from around the world. (as of 2/27/17)

Countless numbers of artists and bands have gained thousands – even tens of thousands – of song plays and downloads; new fans and followers; subsequent press coverage; gigs and festival slots; licensing offers and record deals indirectly or directly from being featured on IRC.

We receive hundreds of submissions each month. We do our best to keep up, but it’s simply impossible to review every submission, and then to research, write, edit, prepare media, layout and publish all of the artists and bands we dig. It’s a lot of work.

Over the years, many musicians and bands have asked us for a faster way to submit and beat the backlog we have of regular submissions. To answer that call, we have rolled out the Express Review Option.

All Express Review donors go to the front of the line and will be publicized to our 90K+ total followers, subscribers and listeners on social media, Hype Machine, RSS and other aggregate platforms.

Our regular submission form (with nearly a two month backlog) can be filled out here. The regular backlog is six to eight weeks. If your release is already out or coming up soon, we recommend using the Express Review donation option.


DIY-Priced Professional Music and Media Services For Artists & Bands

IRC Media also provides professional publicity, social media promotion, artist development and label and licensing representation services for talented artists and bands that are inexplicably under the radar.

Is that you? If so, you need people that know the ropes, who have the connections and contacts, and the experience and genuine passion to help you or your band make progress in the music world via press, social media promotion, artist development, radio coverage, landing more gigs and festival spots, sales, and other opportunities as they arise.

We can help you and your band with a total web, PR, social and publicity approach for the competitive world of music in 2017.

Get more information about our service by filling out this form and we will contact you. Please do not fill out this form to submit music. No music will be reviewed that is submitted through this form. This form is only if you are seriously inquiring about how to get your music heard and shared by thousands, tens or hundreds of thousands, of fans in your market areas – which we will help you determine.

You can also get quotes on publicity campaigns; social media promotion and branding; artist development and management; licensing and label representation and other services we provide. We have over 50 years combined experience in the music industry; the media/press; promotions; marketing and the Internet.
