As working and gigging musicians we appreciate we don't always have a huge budget to promote and it's hard to get good radio air play on stations that have listeners.  Send your music to be selected for airplay.

We all want the 'commercial' stations to play our tunes and on occasion they may do just that however, it is the smaller community stations that will give unsigned bands ongoing support.

Chief Radio has a social following reaching 25,000+
and listeners annually 150,000+
Our listeners are highly engaged with 40%+ reposting/sharing our social media
We have supported 1000s of unsigned bands to date.
We actively support unsigned artists daily but stations like Chief close down every month because of costs and commitment.
We ask that you donate £3 per single release and will promote you and your music and add you into our monthly Chief Independent Chart.

We have also teamed up with a couple of promoters that you may want to consider getting in touch with.  We play the artists from Pluggin' Baby often and Emma also has a show on Chief Radio
