If you’re interested in submitting an idea for a post, or promote some of your own music, or somebody else’s, email me at colmhogan(at)gmail.com. Please bear in mind I can’t write about everything, and if your music doesn’t make it to the front page, it will most likely end up on DG’s Soundcloud page.
Copyright & Legal Stuff
I try to use images and video that are in the public domain or used for publicity. If not, I do my best to credit the artist. That being said, I am largely a one man operation, so sometimes something slips by me, and I make a mistake here and there. Again, please email me, and I will happily rectify things as quickly as possible.
