SoundsLikeCafe is calling for placements on its next compilation sampler going out to over 1,200 cafés across Australia. Based in Sydney, Australia, SoundsLikeCafe distributes five compilation CDs per year to an exclusive list of cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, bookshops and winery’s throughout all Australian states including metro, regional and tourist areas. Submit now to be part of this unique opportunity to enter the Australian music market.

A recent survey of SoundsLikeCafe’s unique distribution list indicated over 1 million listeners per week across 1200 outlets. Genres accepted include: Singer/Songwriter, Roots, Blues, Pop, Reggae, Adult Contemporary, Commercial Dance and Pop Rock. SoundsLikeCafe does not accept Rap, Urban, Heavy Rock, Country, Techno, Metal or music that is too heavy.

The compilation is delivered free of charge to SLC outlets and over 30 volumes has built a reputation for bringing quality new music to an otherwise neglected by very appreciative audience. Whether you are an Australian or international act looking to tour, release an album, or gain exposure within Australia, Sounds Like Cafe provides the perfect opportunity to showcase your music. It allows you to bring attention to your name by being positioned alongside artists such as Sarah Blasko, Sneaky Sound System, Paul Kelly, Joe Cocker, Ray LaMontagne, John Butler Trio, Dan Sultan, and many more.

Selected artists are included on the CD compilation for distribution to SoundLikeCafe outlets and on, which features direct click throughs to artist sites, Itunes, or other sales links. The website also features a chart compiled directly from cafe feedback.

SoundsLikeCafe is moving to digital distribution to select cafes and this has allowed a significant cost reduction that can be passed on to our artist clients. The inclusion fee is reduced from $900 to $500. This fee will be waived for one Sonicbids artist on each CD (selected at SoundsLikeCafes’s discretion).

Please note: Selected artists (except the one artist mentioned above) must pay a fee to be included on the CD. The following rates are per track, per volume and are in AUS dollars - prices exclude GST (TAX):

  • Unsigned and independent artists - $500 per track

  • 2 tracks $100 off

All artists who submit using Sonicbids will be seriously considered for inclusion on the SoundsLikeCafe CDs.
