Your music on a podcast?

For those singersongwriters who want to get their music out there and listened to by more people, I have a couple of tips for you in the world of podcasting.

Firstly, the Klauw podcast, which is presented by the same people who organise this guild, is a sporadic yet humerous look behind the scenes of the Klauw magazine, and other things to do with music and thinly related topics. Every episode Kat and Jaap play a couple of musical tracks to break up their intense conversations, which would otherwise be overwhelming and cause implosion. So if you would like them to play some of your music on their podcast, you can post your cd's to this address:
Den Haag Songwriters Guild
Wolmaransstraat 365
Den Haag
The reason that they are requesting for CD's rather than mp3s or picking it off myspace is that they will be playing CD's from guild members inbetween acts in Lokaal Vredebreuk, and Savanna, and any other places which come up, including festivals.

The second tip I have for you is to sign up at podshow music. After you have joined, and uploaded your tracks, they will be available for the podcasters to listen and choose for their shows. I signed up about 6 weeks ago, and I have had different tracks played on 6 different podcasts already! So its a great way to get your music out there. You probably wont make any money out of it, but if you are looking for promtional tools this is one I would recommend. You can see exactly which podcasts have played you and when, so you can check it out, and I have been contacted by the podcasters asking for more information about my music, so they can talk about it too.
