That means that having a popular music blogger post your latest music, hype your next show or even review your album will get you some true street cred, and some true new fans. Numerous bloggers have their email addresses or social channels listed on their posts, so try getting in touch with them with a short intro and a link to one of your songs.

Club are some of the top ones.
