Submit your music.jpg (15 KB)

1. Before submitting /!\ read carefully

You're an artist / a band, and would like to submit your music to the Indie Music Center? You're very welcome :)

The first step is to get to know each other because we want to build long-term relationships with musicians.

So the first thing to do is browse the pages of the site and be aware of the services we offer: reviews, playlists, podcasts, radio station, high-quality shares. We mean: read a few articles, read the story behind, listen to the radio for a few hours, interact with us on Instagram regularly, and soak up our state of mind.

Knowing who you're submitting to is very important in your marketing strategy!

And we think that the best people to talk about it are... our artists. Some of our IMC Certified Artists will tell you more about Indie Music Center than anyone:

You can find loads of other testimonials on the Guestbook page.

Why knowing us?

Because we still receive country or hip-hop submissions, and it's really tiring. And let's be honest: these kinds of submissions go straight in the trash.

If you've bought a kind of "bible" with e-mail addresses, you may find us here (even if we didn't give our clear agreement, which is against the laws of our country). But you got scammed. Most of those data are outdated. The playlists mentioned in this bible don't even exist for a few years. And you won't get any answer from us, because this e-mail box is not used anymore.

Then, if you want to submit your music, you have several options.

2a. Submit only to IMC

You can submit by filling our submission form, it will be back shortly. We've been running a beta-test phase and it worked out pretty well. We just need to make some adjustments and we will bring it back. You only need 5 to 10 minutes to send us your music.

2b. Submit to IMC + loads of amazing blogs

You will find us SubmitHub and Musosoup.

Musosoup is a wonderful platform where, through only one submission, your music will be shared with loads of amazing blogs. Then, they will come to you with offers and it's up to you to accept them or decline them. Yes, it means you won't pay a platform to get declined all day long. We may ask for a small contribution but you're not forced to accept it and you can always go for a free option. You have the power.

What you will get :

- A blog post, made by a human being with his heart! This what we're here for.

- high-quality share of your song on socials

- 2 Spotify playlist adds

- Your song will be played on Indie Music Center's Radio!

We need 60 minutes of work + writing time for each track because we really care about quality. To be honest, we're not earning a single cent. Artists and fans donations only cover 30% of our fees. 

And after?

Did you really think we were gonna let you down so easily?

Artists submitting constantly high-quality content will be considered as an "IMC Certified' artist". Meaning artists we trust the most. We will give them priority placement and will increase our advertising budget for them. It's also a guarantee of quality content for our visitors. "IMC Certified Artists" are gathered in an Instagram group chat and a monthly Skype call to help each other to promote their music, so they can exchange ideas, news, experiences, and promotion tips. A great occasion for you to connect with other musicians in the US, Europe, or South America.

Thank you for reading until the end.
