Music Submission Email Templates

Music submission email templates for when artists submit their music to websites and blogs.

EMAIL SUBMISSION TEMPLATES 

When trying to submit your latest song, video, or project to a music website/blog, some will have you complete a form but for others, you will need to email them directly. There is a correct way to go about corresponding with a respective music website/blog via email and a very wrong way.

Below are some tips for how to email music submissions correctly, as well some samples/templates that you can use for yourself. *Change the wording of the samples/templates to fit your needs.

1. Put your artist/band name and the title of the track/video or project in the email subject line. 

2. Do not send MP3s unless they are requested.

3. Include a short description of the track/video or project. 

4. Be sure to include your social media stream and website links under your message; ensure that the links are up to date.

5. If applicable, if you appeared in previous notable blogs, list them and include links.
