Submit Your Music

The Layne Loves project is always looking for more bands to connect with! The primary focus is independent bands, including those signed with indie labels or management. Any genre is welcome, and if there isn't currently a spot for it then one may just be created!


Through Live365, Layne Loves Radio is licensed with ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC in the United States, SOCAN and Re:Sound in Canada, and PPL and PRS for Music in the United Kingdom. All spins are tracked and royalties distributed accordingly where applicable.


Please follow these guidelines to submit your music for air play on Layne Loves Radio.

Step 1: Make sure your music files have complete and accurate metadata, and include a square image (album art).

  • The metadata for each song should have the correct artist, title, album title, album artist, genre, and year at minimum. If not already entered into the files, include this information in the email with the files.
  • Also mention if there is a recording label involved who needs to be entered into the system's metadata field.
  • The Live365 player is visually impressive, as long as each song has a square image attached. In some cases the album art is automatically applied, but in many cases it is necessary to upload an image. Album cover art is best, but any square image will do.


Step 2: Send me your music.

  • Submit your music and images to:
  • Talk to me, tell me a little bit about who you are, what you do, what your band or music project is like.
  • Include either song files or download links.
  • No cover songs please, original music only.
  • You must hold copyright privilege to the song, lyrics and music.
  • Ultimately, song files will need to be in .mp3 format, 44.1kHz sample rate, 128kbps bit rate. I can make the necessary conversions on my end, however.


Step 3: Add confirmation.

  • Once your music is uploaded to the station, i will send you an add confirmation email. This will give you a chance to confirm which songs were added and that the metadata and image is correct for each one. If anything is incorrect just point it out and it will get fixed right away.
  • For some reason, the year is sometimes missing or incorrect after uploading the file, so please pay special attention to this part of the confirmation email.


Step 4: Tune in and hear your song on Layne Loves Radio!
