Submit Your Music for Airplay

Are you a musician?

Do you or your band play hard rock, heavy metal, glam, arena rock, or hair rock?

Are you unsigned or signed with an indie label?

Is your music ready for radio play?

If you answer yes to all these questions, then your music might be played on Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke.

The weekly syndicated Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke show is looking for unsigned and local bands to feature on the show’s “Indie & Unsigned” regular segment. Hard, Heavy & Hair is heard around the world on FM, AM, and Internet stations, and your music could be, too. Just send in your best songs, and Pariah will consider playing them on the “Indie & Unsigned” show segment on an upcoming episode of Hard, Heavy & Hair.

To be considered for airplay on Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke, email to the show the following items.

  • 1-3 original songs (no covers), or your entire album(s). Send all music in uncompressed WAV or MP3 320 KBPS format. With correct and complete metadata.
  • Your/band EPK (Electronic Press Kit)
  • Your/band bio (2-4 sentences long), which may be read or summarized on-air.
  • Your/band photo (at least 1,000 pixels wide, JPG/JPEG, with logo if possible) to be used on and possibly the Hard, Heavy & Hair Facebook page.
  • Your website URL or Facebook fan page URL (one or the other) to be posted on and possibly the Hard, Heavy & Hair Facebook page. This may also be read out on the air.
  • Upcoming gigs or shows. If your music is played on the show, Pariah might mention where people can see you playing next.
  • Giveaways? Can we giveaway your music and/or merch? Codes for free downloads from Amazon Music or Apple Music are preferred and the easiest for Pariah to giveaway to listeners, but physical CDs can work, too. Pariah loves giving away music and merch, and listeners love it, too, plus it gives you more exposure. If Pariah can giveaway something of yours, please tell him about it. What can he giveaway to listeners? How many copies? Is it digital delivery or will you send physical product to winners? What’s a great one-line description of the prize(s)–including something about you/your band?
  • Permission. You don’t even have to do anything for this one. If you submit to the show using the email address above, then you automatically grant Pariah Burke and Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke permission to play any or all of your submissions on the air, and to include them in perpetuity in the streaming archive of the show(s) in which they’re played. You also grant the right to publish or republish the other materials you provide, including, but not limited to, your bio and photo, in perpetuity on and other media for the purposes of promoting you/your band and your music’s appearance on the Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke show

Again, send all of the above via email to Pariah Burke. You’re welcome to either attach music directly to the email or to include links to download your music from Dropbox, Google Drive, or a similar cloud sharing service.

Submitted music will never be shared outside of the show’s staff.

Submission does not guarantee air play. All songs submitted are individually reviewed and may or may not be played on Hard, Heavy & Hair. Approved songs will be played during the “Indie & Unsigned” show segment; exceptional songs may also be played at other times on the Hard, Heavy & Hair show. All complete plays of submitted songs will be credited on (and elsewhere) in the relevant episode’s playlist.
