Artist/Composer Submission Guidelines

First Things First!

Here’s how WFM defines a Recording Artist: 

An Artist is an individual who generates recorded music (a CD, an Album).  An Artist can also be a Composer (who generates sheet music) as well, but then they would always be listed as both.  An Artist is normally the principle contributor to the work (CD, Single, Album) and can be the Lead Vocalist in many cases, the Pianist or Guitarist often in the case of an Instrumental work, or even the Producer who works more in the background, but is the  primary artistic force behind the work.   Artists will be found related to Albums/CDs.
