We find and promote top independent musicians to give them the larger audience that they deserve. We find bands and singer-songwriters through our research, word of mouth, and submissions. We promote through our shows, street promotion, and of course our website. Basically, we act as a free promotion service for music that we believe in.
Innovative music with a focus on the art of song, from punk to folk. We are not guided by any single genre or musical style. At this point, a quick listen to past Jezebel Music Monthly Features will show some of the variety that you can expect from us. You'll hear, pop, folk, rock, punk, and experimental, but underneath each style you'll also hear the kind of quality and individuality that draws our ears in.
