Having access to a directory of music blogs can be an invaluable resource for your band, as it can help you find new opportunities to promote your music and connect with a wider audience.

GET ACCESS TO OUR VENUE DATABASE
Having access to our directory of venues can be a fantastic resource for your band, as it can help you discover new places to perform, connect with other artists who have played at those venues, and learn more about the experience that other bands have had while playing there.
In addition to the basic information that our venue directory provides, such as the venue's location and size, our directory also includes comments and reviews from other bands who have played there. These comments can be incredibly helpful in giving you a better understanding of what to expect from the venue and the experience of performing there. As a band, you can also contribute to the directory by leaving your own comments and reviews of the venues you've played at.
GET INTERVIEWED FOR OUR BLOG
Being interviewed by a music photography blog like us can be an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your music and visual aesthetic. As a music photography blog, we focus on capturing the essence of live performances and the energy of the music scene, which can provide a unique perspective on a band's artistry. We strive to highlight the visual elements of a band's live performance, such as their stage presence, lighting, and overall production, which can help fans gain a deeper understanding of your aesthetic and style.
This can also be a great way for you to gain exposure to a wider audience that may not have been aware of your music before. We attract a diverse audience of music lovers and industry professionals who are passionate about discovering new and exciting artists. Usually we time our interviews around releases or tours, so you get the most out of it.
GET YOUR TOUR FEATURED
Having high-quality photos of your live performances can help you build your visual identity as a musician, increase your exposure on social media, and attract more fans to your shows. That's why you should take photographers on tour or invite them to selected gigs. We can feature your tour on our blog and socials and by participating in photo pass raffles, you can potentially connect with experienced and talented photographers who can capture your live performances in stunning detail.
GET YOUR MUSIC FEATURED
By featuring your music as "Song of the Day" or "Release of the Day", we can help you generate buzz around your music and build excitement for your upcoming releases or live performances. Our readers are passionate about discovering new and exciting artists, so being featured on our blog and social media channels can help your band connect with fans who may not have been aware of your music yet.
GET YOUR LIVE PHOTOS FEATURED
We're always looking for amazing live photos to post on our Instagram feed. Submitting your live photos to us is a quick and easy way to get your work out there. Instead of having to create your own dedicated social media strategy or spend money on advertising, you can leverage our existing platform and network to showcase your work to a wider audience. Just make sure, to send us a black & white square edit and your and the photographer's Instagram handle as well as the name of the venue.
