(March 17, 2017 - Albuquerque, NM) ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE will be marking it's fifth anniversary with the release of a special annual feature ROCK IS RED MAGAZINE. The American Indian-owned publication is calling  out to Indian Country and beyond for talent to have showcased on its pages as well as it's podcast series as well as the pages of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. ROCK IS RED was formerly  a quarterly digital magazine but becasue of a recent downsizing at ROCKWIRED MEDIA, there will only be one issue this year.  In the past ROCK IS RED has featured profiles of such American Indian and First Nations recording artists as GHOST TOWN ORCHESTRA, ETHAN 103, INNASTATE, CODY BLACKBIRD, DISTRICT AVENUE, BLACKSTONE, B. OF DAKOTA SOUTH RECORDS, LOGAN STAATS, ANIMAL TEEF, DAWN KARIMA, CASPER, SCATTER THEIR OWN,  JULIA KEEFE, WILL BELCOURT and others. The upcoming edition of ROCK IS RED MAGAZINE will be due out MAY 5, 2017.

ROCK IS RED has it's roots in the podcast series ABORIGINAL SOUNDS - A CELEBRATION OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN INDIAN AND FIRST NATIONS MUSIC. The show was rebranded ROCK IS RED by the show's production company ROCKWIRED MEDIA LLC and it's founder BRIAN LUSH ( an enrolled member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe). "I really feel that the new name for the show is going to catch on. It rolls off the tongue better as rock n roll should." says LUSH "ABORIGINAL SOUNDS sounded a little too much like an NPR show and that was never our intention. ROCK IS RED sounds like it's about to pop. I think this is a step in the right direction."

The newly rechristened podcast was relaunched on ROCKWIRED.COM in April 2015. Since the shows Launch in May of 2011 some of the artists that have been featured have included JANA MASHONEE, WHEN DARKNESS FALLS, INDIGENOUS, AUDIOPHARMACY, MICHAEL BUCHER, NAKE NULA WAUN, NATIVE ROOTS, CODY BLACK BIRD, SHELLEY MORNINGSONG, MELANIE STORMM, MICHAEL BUCHER, DEY & NITE, OSTWELVE, JIR PROJECT BAND, DEREK MILLER, THE PLATEROS, ANIMAL TEEF, B OF DAKOTA SOUTH RECORDS, TERRENCE.JAYE, DIGGING ROOTS, BLACK OWL SOCIETY, TONE DEF SIRENS EDEN FINE DAY, SIHASIN, KICKIN KROTCH, GHOST TOWN ORCHESTRA, BLACK STONE and more. 

ROCKWIRED MEDIA is also the publisher of the monthly digital magazine ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE - the first American Indian-owned rock magazine . ROCKWIRED MEDIA is continually seeking artists to be featured on ROCK IS RED. While the word ROCK is in the title and BRIAN LUSH'S ROCKWIRED is primarily an active rock publication ROCK IS RED is open to a wide range of music.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
All submissions are to be emailed to djlush@rockwired.com and have "Rock is Red" referenced in the subject line. All submission are to contain the following:

  • Three (3) mp3 or WAV files of completed songs

  • A brief biography of the artist/band

  • Links to any relevant websites or press

  • Photos

MP3 or WAV files are the only files we accept. Please do not send WMA or M4A or FLAC files!

Because this program is designed to promote American Indian and First Nations artists, we ask that all submissions came form bands that are Native fronted or solo artists who are either American Indian or First Nations.

It is our preference to showcase artists with completed works that are available through such sites as CD BABY or AMAZON or ITUNES. If this is not the case for you , please give us an idea of when you intend to drop your release.

While we are pretty open minded to the kinds of musical submissions, ABORIGINAL SOUNDS wishes to only feature modern, contemporary music such as rock, metal, punk, hip-hop, rap, blues, jazz or country/americana (more americana). Spoken word poetry, traditional or pow wow music will not be accepted!

If you have any additonal questions regarding submitting materials to this program please contact the program producer BRIAN LUSH at 505.414.4888 or email him at djlush@rockwired.com.
