We love roots music.

Sponsorship and Donations

Mission Statement

We are here to help musical artists connect with an audience.

We do that by writing blog features, curating playlists on Spotify, and with sponsored albums. We also will be launching a podcast in early 2019. If you would like to support what we do, you have a few options. If you want to send us just one song, do that here.


We accept beer money as a donation via Paypal.


Sponsor an Album


This is not a guarantee of coverage. This is a facilitation portal for submitting multiple songs at one time. If you are curious about CHILLFILTR and the types of songs that we like to write about, please start with one song. The cost here is calculated as follows:

  • 10 songs average per album;

  • $2 submission fee per song;

  • $9 convenience fee.

We will listen, and have an opinion.

We review hundreds of songs per month, and average 2 features per day. If you have just one song for us to listen to, please just submit here.

If you are interested in consideration for a full album review, please apply below. After payment you will be redirected to a form for the relevant details.

In order to justify rolling out album reviews, we need to charge a fee. It takes a certain time commitment to listen to a whole album, and as you can see above, the cost here is comparable to sending 10 songs over individually.

This fee covers time spent listening to up to 10 songs, medium-form feature coverage on the full recording as well as an included spotlight written for 1 track chosen by CHILLFILTR. A good example would be this piece I wrote for Mike Viola.
