What happens when I submit music?

FAQ > Submit Music

In General

We only feature tracks/songs that bring the "heart" closer to God (Ephesians 5:19) and are a pleasure to listen to. We believe that the value of one’s musical praise to God is not determined by how well they are known. We treat all artists equally (from Indie to Mainstream). 

We do not add music to our database that has been released over 12 months ago unless the song is ranking in the Top 2000 of that genre (we have our own system to determine the ranking). Our playlists are classified as "Frontline" (75% of the music in a playlist is released less than 18 months ago). 

If the track is released less than a week ago, then please including the story behind the song (stories that bring the heart closer to God) really does help in case we need to prioritize posts. Readers like real-life/faith-promoting experiences... don't bore them with details about awards, which recording studio / sound engineer, etc..

We listen to the lyrics of each and every song that is submitted. We have zero-tolerance for tracks with explicit language in the title/lyrics, and with graphics that do not align with Christian beliefs. If a track is incorrectly flagged as being explicit, then please inform us when you submit the song and tell us what you think went wrong.
