Tinderbox Music is a music promotion company headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They’re giving away an entirely free national college radio and licensing campaign valued at $3,000 to one amazing band. In the past decade, they’ve charted over 100 bands in the highly coveted CMJ Top 200, with over 20 of those coming in the past year.

While preeminently a radio specialist, they also become experts at licensing music, particularly at television. They’ve had over 500 placements in the past six years. Some of those include Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs, Chuck, Beverly Hills 90210, Six Feet Under, and all of the reality shows on MTV, just to name a few. Have a look, won’t you? www.tinderboxmusic.com

So what do you need to be able to win this? Simple: 325 professionally manufactured CD’s that you will ship to them and that’s it. They take care of everything else. Buying all of the materials for the send-off to radio, designing the one sheet that would accompany the disc to radio, the postage (thank you post office for your latest rate hike…), all of the follow-up, reports on how the disc is doing at every radio station it was delivered to, and of course, the licensing (non- exclusively) after the radio blitz is complete. Sound good? We thought so too…

So how is this going to work?

They will be taking submissions for three weeks after which time they will narrow the field down to five semi-finalists. After they stop accepting submissions, the winner will be chosen within one week. The runner-ups will also be given the opportunity to take advantage of Tinderbox’s services at a discount of 20% off of normal prices.
