Music Submissions


Music Submissions
We welcome music submissions for airplay consideration.

Are you interested in airplay on Folk Roots Radio?

If so, there are some important things to consider before sending us your music.

What we accept for consideration:

Folk Roots Radio plays – folk, roots, Americana, singer/songwriters, alt. country and blues music. We will/do push those boundaries when the mood suits us, and if the song fits.

Nondigital Submissions

Music on CD can be sent by regular post to:
Jan Hall Folk Roots Radio
45 Cherokee Lane
Leamington, Ontario
N8H 5G5

Digital Submissions

If you want to submit music digitally, please send it via download link by e-mail to jan[at]* rather than our Facebook page or Twitter feed. You can also send us a link to your album on Airplay Direct. Please note that we prefer to receive digital downloads as mp3s at 320 kbps or wav files. Please ensure that all meta data is included.

It’s best to include an EPK (press kit), printed one-sheet. Feel free to share links to your website etc.

Please keep in mind that as we receive dozens of submissions each week, it is not possible to guarantee airplay, track airplay progress, or provide detailed responses.

As we’re a totally self-funded, volunteer driven, labour of love – a full time hobby, the only way we can gain is through increased listenership.

If you like what we do, please spread the word, and share Folk Roots Radio with Jan Hall (Facebook) and @folkrootsradio (Twitter) with your fan base and followers on social media.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Jan Hall
Folk Roots Radio
