Indie artists will get an average of 2 messages per week asking if they would
like their music added to a playlist. The next message quotes rates for musician to add their music to playlist.  It is a disheartening reality that pay for play/ payola has become the norm for indie music to get played on playlists, mainstream radio and some streaming platforms.

Everytime you listen/stream an indie music playlist you are paying each musician .08 cents per play. If you listen daily and share playlists with friends then artists incomes go up. This is the reality for unsigned musicians and streaming.

Blue Dirt Girl music is available on your favourite streaming platforms. Links here.

Thankfully, Blue Dirt Girl was asked to add their music to 3 indie music playlists. No $ was exchanged/payola to add music.

New Artist Spotlight is a Canadian conceived, by Ed Eagle TO based artist, worldwide community of indie, unsigned, all genre artists. Blue Dirt Girl music is on ALL STARS playlist.

Octopus London Music playlists are curated by UK based musician Dom Piper. Octopus Music London playlists are made up of all genre, indie music from around the world.
