I welcome submissions, but here’s the key: You will not get a post unless I get your submission via email at TheRockabyeReview@gmail.com. And your chances of getting a post are much, much better if you give me the following:
- An email that explains who you are (where you’re from, what you’re doing, etc.) and why I should post your stuff.
- An image I can run with the post. 500 width JPG/PNG images work fine. Please no NSFW images.
- A download link I can use in the post. (It’s incumbent upon you to do this; if you send me an MP3, I’m not going to upload it, and I’m not going to look kindly on you asking me to do your work for you.)
- Assurance that you have complied with all proper clearances and can legally provide download links to the music.
Even then, I’m not going to swear I’ll post what you send; I run The Rockabye Review by myself, and I stand for the quality of the blog. That means I’m giving your song/project/video a listen/watch before I post it, and not throwing up wackness or garbage. If I don’t like what I hear, but you’ve followed all the necessary guidelines, I’ll be sure to at least give you feedback via email.
If you’re unsure if your music fits here, browse a few posts and check me out on Twitter; my taste is expansive and not too hard to figure out. (Please do not spam me on Twitter; I won’t post something you just tweet me.)
Also: Even doing everything right is not a guarantee that I’ll get to your submission in the timeliest fashion. I’m a college student; I have a job; I try to get some sleep, occasionally.
Emails will be addressed in the order they are received. Emails to any other email address requesting a post will be reported to Gmail as spam.
