If this is you (or your client), I'm probably not your audience. Nor are my readers. Just sayin'.

Note to Artists, Labels and PR reps: Your CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, vinyl LPs, EPs 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, blues 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.

And please note that I strongly prefer music media I can hold in my hand. That means CDs and vinyl (well, cassettes in a pinch). I look less favorably upon downloads, though high quality files (FLAC or WAV) are fine. Streams? I’m not a fan, so unless it’s really special, I’m unlikely to be interested.

If your pitch interests me — and tells me enough about what you do — I WILL, however, listen to streams for evaluation purposes. If those pique my interest, I’ll contact you and request physical media for potential (but not guaranteed) coverage. It remains your choice to send or not.

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…
