Submit Music

We encourage indie artists and bands to submit original music to IRC. Since 2008, we have supported the DIY and indie rock communities, featured thousands of artists and bands, and garnered more than 12 million visitors as of August 2016 from around the world.

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.

Express Review Option

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

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 receive a personal (not a form email) email directly from us after we receive their ERO donation ($27) to IRC via PayPal.

We are very thankful to those of you who appreciate what we’ve done – and continue to do – for nearly a decade and for supporting one of the few remaining long-running and popular (worldwide) indie blogs that actually features real DIY and under-the-radar talented indie artists and bands, not ‘mainstream indie’ artists.

To submit a regular submission, scroll down the page to fill out our submission form. We are sorry, but it takes a little time to fill out, but nothing in this

Professional Music and Media Services For Artists

IRC Media also provides professional publicity, social media promotion, artist development and label and licensing representation services for talented artists and bands.

Is that you? If so, you need people that know the ropes, who’ve got the connections and resources, and have the experience and genuine passion to help you or your band make progress in the music world via artist development, blog, press and radio coverage, new and loyal fans/followers, gigs, sales, and other opportunities as they arise.

Let us know by filling out this form* which services you are interested in and we will contact you directly with a customized plan based on our review of your work and online presence.

* This form is NOT a submission form; it is a request for services. Click here for the regular submission form. OR you can submit with the Express Option for a $39 processing fee and donation to IRC. With the Express Option you shoot to the top of our submissions backlog and you do not need to fill out the submission form – we will do it for you, as well as promote your song link to over 80,000 of our followers worldwide.
