Build a Fanbase

Focus on building a strong fanbase and network of supporters who will listen to your music and share it with others. The more streams your song receives the more likely Playlist Curators are to notice and add your song.

Research and identify playlists that fit your genre and target audience, and reach out to the curators with a well-crafted message introducing yourself and your music. In this instance, you’ve come to the right place! You can submit your music to our Spotify Playlists and YouTube Music Playlists for FREE on our Free Playlist Submission page. No need to write a letter 🙂
