Louis Junior, who released one of Tampa Bay's best local albums of 2018. Send us your new music in 2019.

You may have seen our best local releases of 2018 list and thought to yourself, "Where the fuck is my (or my friend's) album?"

Well, you're right — where the fuck is it? Because we clearly didn't find it, and it didn't find its way to our earholes. That's a testament to the sheer volume of music coming out of the Bay area, but it's also a testament to the fact that it's hard to cut through the noise we call the internet.


In an effort to hear even more local music being made here in Tampa Bay (and near it, too), we've created an easy submission form.

We'd love to hear your finished product as soon as you do, and we need to preview it well in advance of release day so that we may consider coverage for the release and/or affiliated release show.

Our paper hits newsstands every Thursday, and we need a minimum two week lead to even have a chance at getting your album or EP mentioned there. We publish online at cltampa.com/music every day.

Complete the form here, but not before thinking about whether or not you have at least a private link to stream the release and a print-ready press photo(s) to share.
