Spotify is one of the most powerful music streaming services in the world, and it can define the success of an artist without any influence from record companies or radio stations.
Music streaming companies hire teams of curators to create playlists, and spend millions developing algorithms to boost certain artists based upon the preferred plays of listeners. These choices often push the popular artists forward, and leave the smaller, emerging artists lagging behind.
At Hey Honey, we offer a specialist pitching service, that gets your music heard by independent music curators who manage playlists on streaming services like Spotify. Regardless of genre, your music (if accepted*) will be pitched and sent to curators for them to host on their playlists for 2 – 4 weeks.
We’ve found that once your popularity starts to rise due to your presence on these playlists, it triggers an algorithm to boost your music, and you therefore stand a better chance of being added onto the more popular, official playlists.
Some of our clients have gone on to achieve huge success due to their newfound popularity, ending up on Spotify official playlists such as ‘Feel Good Indie Rock’, ‘New Music Fridays’ and even ‘The Best of The Indie List 2017’. Obviously, we cannot guarantee that this will happen to all artists as we don’t have any official tie with Spotify.
*Please note that you may not be accepted, which can happen if our clients have too many tracks to listen to or your music is too vague for their playlists. You will not be charged for the initial pitch, which will confirm whether or not your music has been accepted.
