Get your music heard on Canadian radio


This is for any artist / musician / band out there that are creating original material.
Are you aware of the service provided by The National Campus and Community Radio Association Inc.?
In conjunction with Canadian campus and community radio stations, and the Canadian music industry (record labels, distributors, independent artists, etc.), they all have come together to develop the !earshot Digital Distribution System.
!earshot-Distro is an online platform that will allow the Canadian music industry to upload musical recordings to be searched, reviewed, and downloaded by campus and community radio stations to be broadcast across Canada.
There’s a lot of reading on their site but essentially it seems that:
(a) you pay them about $50 (or $7 if you just have song)
(b) you upload your album
(c) about 100 college / campus / community radio stations can then have access to your music and (maybe) play it …
So, I guess it’s all about exposure. Give it a read and see if it’s for you.
!earshot send out an email to all these radio stations every Monday.
