We are always willing to give a new band a listen.  After all, that’s what we do!

However, we get quite a few submissions and will try to get to them in a timely fashion.  Please also remember that we will be true to our job and reserve the right to say if we do not like a particular album/song/band.

Due to the incredible number of submissions we’ve been receiving, we now require all submissions come through SubmitHub. 

All submissions must come through www.submithub.com now.  Log in there (it’s free) and select EarToTheGround Music as one of the locations to send your music.  There is a premium option there, but we can still hear your music with the free submission option.

**We are no longer accepting submissions via email or Facebook inbox.

 

We are currently NOT accepting physical submissions at this time.  We hope to have a working address sometime in the next few months.  Thank you for understanding!

*Please note, due to outstanding costs, we cannot return physical submissions.  Please note that if we do not feature your submission, we will donate it.  We will not sell your work to generate profits for ourselves.

    Hello!

    Thanks for the opportunity to submit my music. I found your site through 20 Questions Film. I’m an independent folk / Americana songwriter from Indiana living in San Francisco. My favorite songwriters are Jason Isbell, Ryan Adams (Matt Simon are you reading? : ), Townes Van Zandt, Bobby Charles and John Prine. My first LP, One Day In May, is coming out next month (already available digitally).

    I hope you have a chance to check out my site and my songs!

    Best,

    Nate

    Hey guys!

    Just a heads up I tried submitting an inquiry just now and for some reason I keep getting an error message “Genre Required”, but the genre is selected. I tried multiple times. I’ll make sure to submit to eartothegroundmusicblog@gmail.com – thanks for your time!

      Sorry for the inconvenience, Andrew. We fixed the check box. Please give it another try and we’ll get you in the system.

    I am trying to submit music via your submission form, but it will not read my genre selection (no matter what I select) and therefore will not complete the submission. It must be a glitch in the programming. Would love to submit. Hopefully this problem will be fixed soon.

    Hey Guys – Happy Monday! I just want to say this blog is bomb.com I’ve been stuck on it for like the past hour. Really appreciate the focus of this blog on acoustic/folk driven music! I signed up for a lot of the email categories. Keep it up! I also submitted our band and our new album, All the Islands, “Modern Man” to you guys. Thanks in advance for checking it out.
