Sell Your CD at Aware Records' Online Music Store

You've probably heard of Gregg Latterman and Aware Records, the indie label he started in 1993. What started as a series of compilation CDs led to the advancement of a number of regional acts into the mainstream, most notably Five for Fighting, Train and John Mayer.

Well, the label also runs an online music store at which welcomes submissions from independent artists. Please note that Aware Store is pretty picky and does not accept every CD submitted. But if you want to give it a shot, send your CD and press kit to:
c/o Submissions
2336 W. Belmont Ave
Chicago, IL. 60618-6423

According to the Aware Store web site, "Feel free to include any kind of press info that will help us get a better idea of the artist. Make sure to include contact info. If you have any questions, please contact us at 800-AWARE-65 or by e-mail at"
