Get your music reviewed

 

So you just released your latest CD. Your release party was awesome! You delivered your typical smash mouth gig at the local watering hole, and the word on the street is your new music is hot to the touch. Great! So now you can put the following on your Press Pack - ď Fans seem to like the new CD a lot.Ē OK, what about all the music critics out there, what are these people saying about your music on a syndicated level. Most new artists will scratch their head on this one. Truth is there are hundreds of magazines and webzines on-line that will in fact accept unsolicited CDís for review. The good news is - there are about 100 of these music review hubs, or webzines that provide artists with a free review services. The bad news is only about 25% Will ever pot a review.

 

Below are 10 good online review hubs I personally recommend. Each one will give your CD a fair and honest assessment.

After the reviews start pouring in, you want to try to get at least 10 of the best reviews listed in your Press Pack. Be sure to list each Magazine, and put a short blurb in bullet format with a link to the PDF or the actual review. These reviews can also go onto your URL. Below are a few examples of a CD I recently Produced from Drum Dynasty, based out of Seattle, WA. These are actual reviews.

You may have noticed similar type blurbs associated with Movies, and Feature Film releases. Because itís a quick, no-nonsense selling point of the work, and itís an effective way to show people the work stood up well to scrutiny. If someone what to dig a little deeper and read the actual review, they can when you provide a PDF or link. At the end of the day itís just something you can do that will separate you from other Independent Artists out there, and show how professional you really are.
