BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR TO THE HOT MIC
Were excited that your interested in contributing to The Hot Mic. Before we ask you a few questions, we thought you should know a bit more about us.
WHAT IS The Hot Mic?
The Hot Mic is more than just a website for music news. It’s a community of readers and contributors who come together to share their passion for music.
WHY DOES The Hot Mic EXIST?
The Hot Mic began as SlyVinyl, a resource for music fans collectors to learn about limited edition vinyl releases. In 2013 SlyVinyl partnered with artist Blue Sky Black Death to release a limited edition of their 2011 release Noir. Since then, SlyVinyl has released 23 limited edition records, with many more coming in the future. With the success of SlyVinyl Records, it was decided to split the news side of the site to avoid confusion. This, The Hot Mic was born!
So what sets The Hot Mic apart from any of hundreds (maybe even thousands) of music resources available on the internet? Unlike a lot of music journalism, we don’t claim to be experts on anything. We’re just a handful of passionate music fans doing what we do best… talking about music!
Our coverage includes music news, album reviews, podcasts, concert photos, concert reviews and more.
WHO RUNS THE HOT MIC?
The Hot Mic is run by a small group of passionate music who have staked their own money and time to share our love of music. We have no corporate partners or owners, we charge our users nothing, and we have no ads on our site to create the best experience for our readers. You can read about our team here. None of our leadership collects a paycheck, we do this because we love music.
WHAT IS THE HOT MIC LOOKING FOR?
We’re looking for passionate music fans who are interested in contributing written content, such as:
IS THIS A PAYING GIG?
Unfortunately, no. The Hot Mic is a small organization, kept afloat by the hard work of passionate music fans who volunteer their own money, time and talents as writers, photographers and more. We’re not raking in money and keeping it from you. This is a labor of love for all of us. Hopefully it is for you too.
