How to Submit Your Music to Pandora

As I meet more and more people that have iPhones, the overwhelming majority are in love with Pandora. Indie musicians should take advantage of new web services allowing fans to stream your music.

pandoraiphonePandora is a internet radio service that allows users to find artists in their database and stream music at will on their computers. The service then suggests other artists you may like. Through a free app, Pandora has added another dimension to music listening on the iPhone.

I wanted my album to be featured on Pandora and felt this would have a huge impact on album sales. Let fans hear some music and potentially buy songs.

Read the Submission page requirements here for what they are looking for from indie music submissions.

All through free apps, the incentive is good for indie music to get a new following. Pandora has also expanded and now comes to Windows Mobile. Having your music in this arena will allow you to reach a wider mobile audience.

    Hi Edward, the purpose of this article was to inform indie musicians of this opportunity to submit their music online, not to review the service. And you are right, this is directed to musicians who know the name Pandora,

    My intent was to let other musicians out there know of its popularity and to make their own judgements whether to use it, thats why I provide the link to Pandora for visitors to see for themselves.

    I have one comment, I tried to submit to Pandora and as part of their requirements is to have Physical Cd’s available in Amazon.  Well no problem I thought, I already have my mp3’s there.  So doing the research it appears you need a sellers account, and it can’t be a small sellers account it has to be a professional sellers account which cost $39.99 a month, just to have your album available and then and only then can you submit music to Pandora for consideration.   So after you go through all the hoops of getting your requirements in place there is no garantee you’ll be chosen to air on Pandora.
