Note to Artists, Labels and PR reps: Your CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, vinyl LPs and 45s, and even cassettes for potential review are welcomed and encouraged. I’m already on the mailing lists for many of the major PR reps (you know who you are). If I’m not on your list, please feel free to add me. My tastes run decidedly toward the rock, soul, and jazz end of the musical spectrum, so if you (or your clients) are a “boy band,” run-of-the-mill hip-hop artist, EDM/DJ artist, act called “so-and-so feat. so-and-so” or bro-country performer, save your stamp, as it were.
I’m keenly interested in reissues (rock, jazz, soul, blues, r&b, etc.) and previously-unreleased archival material of cultural/historical interest; if you have any of that sort of thing that you’re promoting, PLEASE get in touch. Extensive and enthusiastic coverage is likely; see here for a typical example.
And please note that I strongly prefer music I can hold in my hand. CDs and vinyl are strongly preferred. With very, very, very rare exceptions, I will NOT consider for review anything provided to me as a stream or download. PLEASE READ THAT SENTENCE AGAIN before contacting me.
AND…I say this with all due respect. If your note requires me to guess or otherwise divine what you’re about musically, I will delete it instantly.
Here’s how to contact me…
