Exposure on NPR's Open Mic

Since it began in 2003, NPR's Open Mic segment has showcased nearly 800 independent, unsigned and self-produced bands. It's described as "a virtual stage for aspiring musicians to reach a larger audience with their work and a place to discover music you likely won't hear anywhere else."

Starting last month, Open Mic became a daily podcast. A new song with comments from the artist is featured each day, Monday through Friday.

Who can submit music?

"Anyone who puts out their own music -- from basement tapes to studio-quality recordings -- can submit their work for consideration on All Songs Considered's Open Mic. We are looking for wholly independent artists playing any genre of music."

Read the submissions guidelines and get cracking!

If you're concerned about the wording in the permissions form, check out this CD Baby post for some thoughts on that.
