How to Land on Spotify Playlists (Despite Limited Resources)
A question that often arises from emerging independent artists is, “How do we get on official Spotify playlists?”
We scoured the internet to come up with an answer to that question, courtesy of CD Baby guest contributor Braden Lam.
Lam, an independent musician and namesake of Halifax, Nova Scotia-based Braden Lam & The Driftwood People, took to CD Baby’s DIY Musician blog to outline how he completed and marketed the band’s new “Driftwood People” album with “no label, no manager, no team, no budget.”
This is an incredible case study in how a relatively new, completely DIY independent artist successfully marketed his music, complete with the results to back it up. We urge you to take a few minutes to read about it, take notes, and become informed when it comes time to launch your next release.
