Submit Music


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 14 million visitors from around the world!

During the past decade, thousands of artists and bands have gained significant exposure, and more, as a result of being featured on IRC. Ultimately, our mission remains the same: to find and give a spotlight to the newest talented, ambitious and under-the-radar artists and bands across the country and beyond our shores.

We receive many submissions each month. A ton of work goes into the reviewing them, and then research, writing, editing, preparing media assets, editing photos, finalizing layout before posting to the site and sharing on our social.

Over the years, many musicians and bands have asked us for a faster way to submit, skip the regular submission form (which takes about 15-20 mins to fill out) and beat the backlog of regular submissions. Therefore, we’ve rolled out the Express Review Option

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

If your release is already out or coming up in a matter of a few weeks, we recommend using the Express Review donation option. We will also send your link to all of our subscribers, RSS, and social media – totaling a reach of over 90K music lovers, artists, music professionals and our long-time loyal following around the world!
