SUBMIT YOUR MUSIC

Welcome.

When we started in 2010 all submissions were made to the RCM editor Mark Knight by email, but as the volume of submissions increased, more and more music was being overlooked. To avoid this, we took the decision to move to this centralised online submissions database. This approach means we can support more incredible music, with more writers reviewing the music. Complete the form below to submit your music for FREE.

How It Works.

Every track submitted to RCM is reviewed by our editor. Any submissions containing demos or poorly recorded music, bad images, broken links, or missing a biography will immediately be removed. We only publish high-quality music on our blog.

RCM has a growing team of writers (currently 21) with access to our submissions database. We can't guarantee all 21 writers will log in every day, but this approach vastly improves your chances of your music being heard. If one of our writers likes your music, they will email you and make an offer to support your music. A review on RCM costs just £6.00 with 100% going to the writer. In order to attract and retain writers, we no longer offer free reviews.

We recommend you submit your music a week before release day, that gives us time to listen and write. But don't worry, if your music is already out, it's fine to still submit it. After all, if we haven't heard it, it's still new music! Please note that RCM only publishes released music that is available on Spotify.  We always want to ensure our blog can help drive streams and income.

MUSIC IN ISOLATION

Music in Isolation has become a platform for new bands and artists to get the exposure they deserve. They can't gig due to the current climate so why not help them out.

"When London went into Lockdown I was trying to find something to do to past the time. I have always had a passion for music and find new music. I get a serious kick if someone comes to me and says "This band is amazing thank you for recommending them to me" this makes me proud.  I have always voiced my opinions about bands and songs to friends and family. So I started to write about music that I was listening to while stuck indoors. This is how I came up with the name Music in Isolation. This shows the idea of music that is personal to you, everyone listens to music through earphones so it is music that you are isolating to yourself."
