Why Spotify playlists are important for unsigned bands
As an unsigned band it is incredibly difficult to secure day time radio play-listing, because radio is dominated by major label artists. Hiring a radio plugger is expensive and for unsigned artists the cost frequently outweighs the returns. Faced with these challenges Spotify provides a powerful and credible alternative way for unsigned artists to build buzz and earn an income.
Although landing a place on an official Spotify playlist can have a dramatic impact on your income, competition is fierce. Therefore, getting your music on independent playlists like Lost On Radio can provide a vital stepping stone to build online buzz to get on Spotify’s radar.
The Lost On Radio Podcast
Lost On Radio began as a Podcast back in 2011, the show attracted listeners from over 80 different countries and was broadcast on 7 radio stations, in five different countries (US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK). We produced a total of 201 episodes before taking the decision and move to a weekly Spotify playlist. Listen back here.
