HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR MUSIC TO LOCAL 891
We are champions of independent emerging artists who will be the stars of tomorrow. Looking to get heard on NV89? Listen to NV89 throughout the day to get an idea of the diverse artists we play. Make sure your music will be a good fit with our station before submitting. We are accepting local and regional artists in and around Nevada ONLY.
Here’s how to submit your music to LOCAL 891 for airplay consideration.
First, we are looking for Nevada-based bands. Please provide a bio that includes contact info and a mailing address. Digital submissions are preferred, but we also accept physical CDs. Send us a link to your recordings (WAV or MP3 preferred). We will review and download the songs we like.
Please do not send actual music file attachments via email (unless requested) and only send “clean” radio edits with no objectionable lyrics. NV89 will only accept music that is commercially available digitally and/or for sale in stores. Submitted CDs should be final copies of full albums or EPs with artwork, no demos. It’s also helpful to include a one-sheet with contact information, a short bio, a song list highlighting your strongest tracks and any songs that have lyrics the FCC would find unacceptable.
Thanks for sharing your music with us.
