Pitching Tracks: How to Get Streamed

Streaming services have become the giant ape of music distribution, connecting music fans worldwide via “The Cloud.” It’s been a mind-bending and amazingly fast paradigm shift, and pitching your tracks to the people who control their playlists is a brand new experience in promotion - especially since some of the biggest playlists aren’t run by the services, but by independent contractors. This session will share the metaphorical “secret handshakes” labels use to get the attention of streaming service gatekeepers. There is an art to successful online pitches, and these panelists are pros.
