Description

That's Why We Musyc helps artists in any way they may need. Artists trust us to tell them the truth and treat them as equals. We don't work like most other publications. You will never be asked to write in a certain style or only cover specific genres. Writing is an art, just like being a musician. We value our writers as artists. That's Why We Musyc has two sides. We have the publication and we have the Artist residency project. There, we listen to demos and give feedback, help artists gain fans, learn how to network and teach artists to manage themselves. Our strategies are completely unique. We are there to help the artist rather than the artist working to help us.

To apply please send an email to thatswhywemusyc@gmail.com with the subject line NEW WRITER your top 5 favorite bands and why and a bit about why you want to work for us.

If you are on the fence, please check out our website at thatswhywemusyc.com
