When it comes to pitching your music to blogs and tastemakers, the best process is always to get personal. Get to know the people curating the blogs and playlists and that will surely do you better than a cold pitch.
That being said, there’s a lot of free sites that allow you to submit your music to spotify playlists directly. Always be sure to listen to the playlist you’re submitting your music to. This ensures you’re not sending something completely out of left field and annoying the playlist curator. If it sounds sonically similar (tempo, genre) to the other songs on the playlist, go forth!
Here’s a few of the best websites (updated November 2019)!
