Indie Music Works News

IMW Halloween Bash!


IMW's annual Halloween Bash, on October 28th, was scary good! A small but enthusiastic coven of witches and warlocks joined us in the chat room, as Floridamusic mixed up a hot cauldron of spooky songs and terrifying tracks. Haunted by both new creations and moldy oldies, hair was raised and skin was crawling.

A big thank you to all who joined us in chat, and listened on IMW streaming radio. We hope everyone had a great time! Be sure to stop by the IMW Halloween Page to check out all the creepy creations that our members have contributed over the years... if you dare!

The Holidays Are Upon Us


The year has flown by quickly, and the holiday season is upon us once again. As always, Indie Music Works is looking for new songs to add to our growing list of music celebrating the holiday season. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, solstice, or perhaps you just enjoy the winter season, we'd love to hear it expressed in music!

As we do every year, all new holiday music submissions will be added to the IMW Holiday Page, and will be included in the playlist for DJ Floridamusic's holiday show, on IMW Radio. It can be an original song or music in the public domain. Be sure to secure a license, if you record copyrighted music, so we can include that information when we post the song. Click on over to the IMW Holiday Page, and check out all the great creations from previous years.
