Despite our small size, Music Unlabeled operates like a professional publication. We treat this like work (except we don’t get paid). It’s a lot of fun, but it’s also not for everyone. Anyone who wants to write for Music Unlabeled and be a part of something great has to have dedication, skill, and a passion for music that is unparalleled.
Still want to write for us? Great.
What We’re Looking For
Dedicated, passionate music lovers who also just happen to be awesome writers. We’re mainly looking for people to review music. Contributing writers can review any sort of music they please as long as it hasn’t been reviewed before. Contributing writers who have been reviewing music with us for a decent amount of time may occasionally be requested to review music that we send to them, that has been sent to our submission page. This is of course voluntary – you can turn the music away. But reviewing music outside of your normal genre and tastes (and that is sent to us through the submissions page) is a key part of being a member of the Music Unlabeled team.
This is a perfect opportunity for anyone who hasn’t been published before. Music Unlabeled is a growing organization that has worked with countless publicists and musicians. Through this publication, both the founders have grown exceptionally and learned lots. We’re not experts (yet) but we’re willing to work with anyone who has the passion and ability to learn from us and with us as we continue to grow.
For writers who still want to write for Music Unlabeled but don’t want to write reviews, we might have a place for you and encourage you to send us an email. Please note that you will not be handling any interviews.
