Music: Contact me first by e-mail, and include a brief description of your music. Do not send mp3s at first, but please include a link to where I can hear a stream of a complete song or two, at least. Be prepared to send a physical CD if I respond with a request for it.
Artist Fund Drives: If possible, contact me at least a week before your fund drive is to begin. Describe the project you are raising funds for, and give the start and end dates for the drive. If you are makng an album, send me an imbed code for a stream of a song the represents the sound you are after on the new album. This song can be a demo of a song you intend to put on the album, or a song from a previous album. Also send me a link where readers of Oliver di Place can go to make a donation.
Videos: Contact me by e-mail, with a link to the video and an imbed code. If possible, I would like to have the CD if I decide to cover the video, so that I can include a few words about the album in my coverage.
Books: I will consider books about the kinds of music I cover here, novels about musicians and the musical life, and books that help musicians to navigate the music business. Send me an e-mail and describe the book. Be prepared to send a physical copy if I request it. I will read any book I decide to cover in its entirety, so it may take some time for my coverage to appear, and I will be very limited as to how many books I can cover.
I choose songs for my reviews and Spotlight features because I feel that the entire album is worthwhile. So please, if you like something enough to download it, consider following the purchase link provided, and purchase additional mp3s, or, even better, the entire album. Many of the artists featured here will use whatever money they make to finance their next recording project, so your support will help to assure that there is more wonderful music here for us all to enjoy. On behalf of the artists, thank you.
