ARTIST MUSIC SUBMISSIONS:  The Whip plays American Roots Music – Blues, Rock, Country (not Top 40), Bluegrass, Folk, Gospel and Comedy.  We generally don’t play anything considered Top 40 by today’s standards (no offense to any of those artists) but occasionally there are outstanding crossover performers.  Not really interested in computer-generated music either.  We prefer real people playing real instruments singing with their real voices.  If you feel you fall within those few guidelines, submit away!

DO NOT email audio attachments! DO NOT use Facebook, Messenger, Twitter or social media to reach out to us about your music.  These contact methods will not be reviewed.
