You will notice that Fluence is not a free service for music submissions. Here’s why you should consider using it. It’s much more than a music submission portal:
With Fluence you get your music put directly in front of D Grant. You also get his honest feedback and the opportunity for a bigger connection. If he likes you’re music, he’ll recommend you to a host of other music curators and influencers. And he’ll also share your music to his digital audience.

Here are some great tips and insights into effective music submissions to other media.

For more info on how to write an effective music submission to other radio stations, blogs, podcast hosts, and playlist makers, grab D Grant’s acclaimed book that covers the process here:

DGS_RadioHandbook_Cover-1A While we’ve been a giant resource for musicians through radio airplay for over 13 years, many great indie, public and community radio stations do what we do on a daily basis. Reaching them isn’t rocket science, but many artists (and promoters) go about contacting radio the wrong way. It’s one of the things D Grant has helped to change in his debut book The DIY Musician’s Radio Handbook. Don’t send another spammy, blanket email. It will get trashed. Instead, discover the best way to get targeted radio airplay on stations who will support your music and your career.
