Tinderbox has been servicing music to CMJ reporting college radio stations across the country since October of 2000. In that time we have built strong relationships with more than 500 college and non-commercial radio stations in all 50 states and Canada.  Our traditional campaigns never run for less than nine weeks.  In that time we make sure the stations we mailed to received your CD and obtain feedback on your release via weekly phone calls and e-mails.  In addition, Tinderbox can assist with setting up radio interviews, in-studio performances and on-air promotions at no extra cost.


Tinderbox has worked successful radio campaigns for artists such as Halloween Alaska, Ingrid Michaelson, Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos, Minibar, Rhymefest, The Honeydogs, Ellis, The Owls, Umbrella Sequence, Jeremy Messersmith, These Modern Socks, The New Standards, Josh Rouse, Rachael Sage, The Great Depression, Camper Van Beethoven and Trampoline Records (the independent label owned by Pete Yorn and Rami Jaffee of the Wallflowers).
