Music Blogs with the Most Impact

In a market where an almost infinite number of voices are vying for attention, never underestimate the impact of music blogs. Whether you’re looking for new music to listen to or want to get your music ‘found,’ we look at the Top 25 of the 200 most important music blogs in 2019.

Are you looking for a way to get your music in front of the right people? First and foremost, you’ll need incredible music because approaching big websites with terrible recordings that receive thousands of submissions per month will never get you anywhere.

Inquire about our Artist Development and Music Production program and our FREE eBook “ARTIST DEVELOPMENT AND MUSIC PRODUCTION: THE HARD TRUTH AND HOW TO COPE,” written for rising artists and singer/songwriters. This is insider knowledge from top-tier producers. “Information is power,” as they say.
