If you wish to pitch an artist for Headphone Nation, contact via email theheadphonenation at gmail dot com with the subject line “HN – [county] – [artist name]” and include links to music.

Feel free to put this email on your distribution lists; just know that if you contact me directly with the above subject line, I’ll actually listen to what you’re sending me 🙂

Please share Bandcamp, SoundCloud, or YouTube links. It’s much easier for me to share links to Bandcamp, SoundCloud, or YouTube here than Spotify or Apple Music streams.

Also, pitch me any genres and styles! I try to keep an open mind, though I tend to favorite songs that have guitars in them. I love to hear music that I would otherwise never come across that challenges my perception of what is “good.”

Because I receive so many emails, I can only respond to you if I will feature the song on Headphone Nation. I try my best to be on top of everything, but some things will fall through the cracks; feel free to follow up with me if you want to. (Please don’t follow up twice though, for that’s aggressive and I’m gentle.)


Note: I likley won’t accept pitches for artists from the U.S., Canada, or U.K. unless there’s a strong international story involved, since there are plenty of U.S.-based publications that do a good job covering those regions. With that said, I will promote U.S. bands from my homestate of Indiana; if you’re a fellow Hoosier, reach out!
