Get Your Music on Amazon!

BE HEARD. In the endless sea of independent artists aiming to leave their mark on the music world, it can be tough to find the right audience for your music. We understand, as music listeners, how hard it can be to find those on-the-rise gems who have yet to get connected with the right record label or means of distribution to get their music heard. With our "State Of Independents," Jesusfreakhideout.com is devoted to assessing the state of independent music, looking to find the best out there and share them with our readers. Now you can be heard.

For the independent artist, we're offering a chance to be connected to new listeners. With an indie review on Jesusfreakhideout.com, we will give an honest and fair critique of your project as well as lasting exposure on the world wide web. Our indie review service guarantees a listen to your recording, a non-rated (AKA not a star rating) paragraph review, a link to your website or community page (i.e. Facebook, MySpace, PureVolume), your review archived for continuous exposure and reference, and widespread exposure through the esteemed JFH readership. Your submission for review also includes the chance to achieve an "Indie Spotlight" review (example), in which we highlight the best of the best independent artists with a full-page review and extended information on your release!

"Any Restrictions?" - Due to a surprising increase in occurrences, as of JULY 2023, we will NOT be accepting music submissions that contain the use of strong profanity. Please do not signup and submit music with vulgar or profane lyrics (especially the "S" and "F" words). Please keep this in mind before signing up. We do believe a message can be conveyed clearly without any need for profane emphasis (but we acknowledge that not everyone else agrees with this). If you do signup and submit music that contains lyrical profanity, we reserve the right to not review your music on JFH and may keep your submission fee depending on how much time we've already spent on your submission. Please also realize that any artist submitting music to JFH is assumed to be a believer - or group of believers - in Christ and is okay with being associated with the Christian music genre.

"Can I get an artist page?" - Actually, YES you can! You can make a small donation to support JFH in return for an artist page added to our official Indie Artists Database. For your own indie artists database page, you submit all of your member info, web links, social media links, album discography (just titles and years), some "For Fans Of" artist suggestions (optional) and an artist promo photo to us and we'll post a page for you in our special indie artists database. You can maintain your artist page any time by just emailing us updates for adding a new album, or link changes! You are responsible for sending us all the necessary information for your page, however. The cost for the creation and maintenance of the page is just $25 USD. There are also a couple review packages below that will include the page. If you have a review in addition to an artist page, we can link your review on your page (and vice versa). Here's an example entry: Gable Price and Friends.

"Can I get just an interview?" - YES you can! You can make a small donation to support JFH in return for an indie artist interview conducted over email. The fee for this option is just $25 USD for a 7 to 10 question email interview. There are also a couple review packages below that will include an interview (See Below). All independent artist interviews are listed on this page. Here's an example interview: Dex the Nerd Who Loves Jesus.

"How do I sign up for a review?" - The basic JFH Indie Review Submission service is just $40 USD and includes the following:

  1. At least a one-paragraph professional review (example) with consideration for an extended "Indie Spotlight" Review (example)
  2. Your own review page where you can feature your own music player via any service you wish - like Bandcamp, ReverbNation, Soundcloud, etc. - just provide us with the embed code! If you have an online store for which we can embed on your review page, we'd be more than happy to feature that instead. Please just email us the code for posting.
  3. Your review will be archived permanently (link) for linking purposes and future reference.
  4. Your review will appear on the front page of Jesusfreakhideout.com for a week or more
  5. A link to your artist webpage (i.e. official web site, Sonicbids, Facebook, Bandcamp, etc)
  6. A buy link for your album (iTunes or Amazon is preferred)
  7. Your album artwork will be displayed alongside the review

Two-Review Package - We realize that some people want more than one opinion on their music. The "Two-Review" Package includes everything from the ground level review option but NO interview posting. What you will get, however, is TWO staff review opinions. The second review will be much like the "Second Staff Opinion" reviews we post with our mainstream reviews (so it'll be shorter, most likely, than the main indie review). But, in the end, you have TWO opinions, as opposed to just one. The JFH Indie Review Submission Two-Review Package service is just $70 USD

Supreme Package - This is the package for those who want all of the review options. $95 USD and includes everything from the first, base-level review option PLUS the following:

  1. TWO JFH staff reviews! (Example of this package) The second review will be much like the "Second Staff Opinion" reviews we post with our mainstream reviews (so it'll be shorter, most likely, than the main indie review).
  2. Song lyrics added to our site in an exclusive Independent Artist Lyrics Database! The lyrics will then be linked back to a tracklisting on your review page (spotlight or regular inspection review) (**Lyrics must be provided by the artist via email)
  3. A short 5 to 7 question interview conducted by the JFH staff to be included with your review (interview would be conducted via email)!

Omega Supreme Package - This is the package for those who want it all (It's so big, we named it after this guy!). $120 USD and includes everything from the first, base-level review option PLUS the following:

  1. TWO JFH staff reviews! (Example of this package) The second review will be much like the "Second Staff Opinion" reviews we post with our mainstream reviews (so it'll be shorter, most likely, than the main indie review).
  2. Song lyrics added to our site in an exclusive Independent Artist Lyrics Database! The lyrics will then be linked back to a tracklisting on your review page (spotlight or regular inspection review) (**Lyrics must be provided by the artist via email)

Further Details

"How do I send you the music?" - After sending your Indie Review Submission fee, you will be directed to a page with further directions on how to submit your music to us (if the redirect doesn't happen, please email us!). Please send a digital copy of your album (or EP), and/or a link to download the album/EP via email to us -- we do not accept a collection of random songs or demos; it must be a project being released to the public. Please also email us a bio or EPK of yourself or band when submitting your music. Please do NOT send us a STREAM of your music. If you want your music reviewed, it must be available as a download. We will not review streaming music. Do not send us a link to your Soundcloud or Spotify account or another streaming service with random songs on it. You must send completed music in download form. We also need a completed set of music. If it's a single, that's fine. If it's an EP or album, please do not send us incomplete batches of songs still in progress. We will only review a completed set of songs.

"After I sign up, how long is the turnaround?" - Upon receiving your Indie Review Submission fee and music, we will have your review for you within 40 days of us receiving the music for review.

Please note: It is your responsibility to send the music to us. If you do not send us the music and later decide you would like a refund of the submission fee, we can provide a full refund up until 60 days after the receipt of payment. If you request a refund after 60 days, Paypal keeps their service fee and we will only refund the difference.

"What else do I need to know?" - Once we receive your music submission, the submission fee is not refundable. We do not guarantee positive reviews or "Indie Spotlight" reviews for every submission. We are offering honest, fair critiques of your work, which is a great way to garner crictical feedback while getting your name published on a reliable media source. If you are unhappy with the review we give you, you may request that the review be taken down, but we will not be able to refund your submission fee. If you wish to have your record re-evaluated by another reviewer, you will have to pay the fee again to resubmit it for review by another JFH staff member (this may only be done once). Jesusfreakhideout.com also reserves the right to alter the submission fee or signup terms at any time (but not will not be altered for you after you've signed up under these terms). Finally, please know that JFH reserves the right to reject any submission--with full refund--if the content of the music or the artist's agenda conflicts at all with JFH's values or beliefs.

"Sounds great, let's do it!" We only accept PayPal at this time, which also can handle credit card payments. If you have questions at anytime, please write us using our email contact form. After payment, you should be redirected from Paypal to a page on JFH with directions on where to send your music for review (In the case that it does not redirect you, please email us right away and we'll send you the proper link. Thanks!).

 

*Note: Upon receiving the music for review, please allow our team 40 days to listen to the music and post a review here on JFH.
