Power Publicity

A free service for musicians

Getting your music out there is key

Exposure leads to opportunity. But maybe you’ve sent your CD’s out for reviews, airplay and publicity, with no results. That’s where STLBlues can help. With a known 30 year industry brand, a ‘Keeping the Blues Alive’ award,  and countless industry relationships, the STLBlues brand adds leverage to all your publicity efforts.


Being from St. Louis, with outstanding community radio and a world class live music scene, we know the power & strength of community.

Whether it's a community radio station like KDHX and KWMU, or B.B. King's Bluesville on SiriusXM, Big City Rhythm & Blues magazine, ezines like Blues Blast, or internet radio like Blues Radio International.....it's a community. Globally. And we want to take you there.


We've built the relationships, established the industry contacts, and provide you all the shipping labels and Roots Music Reports labels!

All you do is ship your CD and info!


Because we want to help artists rebound from this Pandemic, and this is just one way we can help.


We'll help you reach 100 media outlets. At no charge.

We've done our homework

We’ve vetted 100 of the best community radio, internet and print resources, developing the contacts and making sure they accept CD’s for airplay and reviews.

We’ll email you PDF files of mailing labels to these community radio, internet and print resources, along with ‘Submit to Roots Music Reports’ labels, so the DJ’s list your airplay, which helps rank your music on the charts at Roots Music Reports. You just print them out, stuff your promo packs, and mail them off!
*We don’t do that 🙂

If you have a marketing budget and want a full featured/managed promotional radio program, look no further than Todd Glazer promotions at ToddGlazer.com.

It takes time!

Don’t necessarily expect the phone to start ringing once your music arrives for the first time at the radio station, magazine or online publication.

That’s OK, it doesn’t mean anything is wrong. That’s part of the game, and next time, it will be easier. Take the long-term view with your PR campaign, stay the course, and you’ll get those results!

"Dave Beardsley and STLBlues have provided invaluable tools for me to produce and publicize my documentary, “Mr. Handy’s Blues”. From getting the word out about the film, to setting up the website and promoting the DVD, Dave has been there for me. STLBlues is definitely on the frontlines of what’s “news” in the Blues world. He has the know-how and savvy to navigate the deep waters of distribution, spreading the news about the Blues world in a format unlike any other. I regard him as a mentor when it comes to ‘spreading the blues’ to a wide audience."

“As a touring musician, I have found it so helpful to find tour support and help promoting shows from local organizers like STLBlues.net. In the 21st century, let’s face it, the way blues lovers find live music in their area is on the internet and through social media.” The music culture in St Louis is rich and deep and thankfully there are people who are working to enrich, share, nurture and grow the musical arts now and into the future.”

"I have been with STLBlues.net since its inception. It is a comprehensive tool that is a great resource for working musicians such as myself. I am able to direct anyone looking for our shows directly to that. A few years ago, I had to go without my own website and I depended on STLBlues.net to fill the void. Dave Beardsley himself has been nothing short of outstanding and professional, answering questions, suggesting changes and updates to my own personal pages, etc. It's always been a great experience. I look forward to continuing my relationship with STLBlues.net, STLBluesTALENT.net. and Dave Beardsley!"

"When I moved to St. Louis nine years ago, one of the big reasons was music. So much music. I quickly discovered StLBlues.net as the prime source for bands and calendar listings. It is comprehensive and accurate, easy to navigate and a great way to plan a night, a week or a month in the clubs. Later, as I was writing my two-volume history of the city and its music, I found the site a great resource for information about local bands and their current CDs as well as numerous interviews with musicians both veteran and new. For any music fan it's the first place to look for all things St. Louis blues."

"The STLBlues Calendar and website is a great resource to see what's happenin' in STL. It was cool of them to mention my appearances in STL when I was on tour with Alan Parsons a couple years ago, I'm looking forward to working with them when I bring my blues rock band through next time around!"

"What a calendar! What a listing of St Louis musicians and musical events! As Sugar and I and the staff at Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine have found out after putting together a "St Louis" issue, Dave Beardsley is bringing it! The National Blues Museum is a great accomplishment but Mr. Beardsley has guided STLBLUES for a much longer period of time. Introducing fans, events, club owners, and talent is the trick and Dave's and STLBLUES hands-on attention to detail make this well-oiled machine purr! The "toolshed" is open! Go to STLBluestalent.net & STLBlues.net, and lets get to work!"

"Anyone that knows Dave Beardsley knows that he was the driving force and co-founder of the National Blues Museum in St Louis, and without his vision, perseverance and dedication it may well never have been built! He is also the founder of STLBlues.net and the live music calendar and before I forget, he also produces the popular "Blues in the Schools" program that educates kids and adults alike about the roots of the Blues, and all that came from it. As Muddy Waters said, "the Blues had a baby and they called it Rock n Roll". Everyone, young and old, love this program!"

Thanks Dave for all you've done, and proud to call you friend!!
