Submit Music Submission Policy Updated as of March 7, 2014 Share with Friends

If you would like to submit your music to be reviewed for potential release by Deep Elm Records, this is the only way to do it. Firstly, thanks for your interest in our label! We have listened to every submission we have been sent (as per our guidelines) for nearly 20 years. You do not need permission to send us your music. We accept unsolicited submissions worldwide. NO EMAIL PLEASE. Music submissions sent via Email will be discarded.

Before you begin, we suggest you do the following:

1) Read through the form below. If you don't know the answers to most of these questions, Deep Elm is likely not the label for your band.
2) Copy the form questions below to a text document so you can spend some time answering each one thoroughly and completely.
3) Create / gather streaming links for your best three (3) songs. Test the links! We recommend using SoundCloud.com or Bandcamp.com (both free).

After you have finished the above, then:

4) Fill out the form below by pasting the answers to each question. This form must be filled out in its entirety to be reviewed.
5) Click "Submit Music"
6) Be patient and have faith in our process. It works.

Every band on our active roster has been signed through this process. Please do not call, e-mail or contact us about your submission. If your screen reads "The form has been submitted successfully!" after you click submit, that means we have received your submission. We will listen! After all, this is how we find new bands. If we are interested in your music, we will be in contact with you. You are welcome to submit again when you have new music available. Due to the high number of unsolicited submissions we receive, we do not comment on music that we pass on. This doesn't mean your music isn't good, it's just not a good fit for Deep Elm at this time. But don't give up. Work hard to find a label that loves what you do. It's as simple as that.

We look forward to hearing your music! Thanks again for your interest in Deep Elm Records.
