WE LISTEN FOR YOU is a music blog with the goal of supporting artists, labels, and the continuation of buying physical music.  WLFY is an ad free space with a small staff.  We encourage you to become part of the discussion in our comments sections of posts or on Twitter/Facebook.  Agree or disagree, taste in music is opinion based and we want you to add to our conversation.

TO BANDS:  We understand how tough the struggle is as an independent band.  WLFY tries to listen and consider every submission, but sometimes the inbox gets too full or the music just isn't the right fit for our site.  Please do not get discouraged if WLFY or any other music blog doesn't post your music.  Keep writing music you would personally like to hear and find exciting.  If music is your passion, never give up.  

If you represent an artist featured on this site and would like a file removed please e-mail us to have it taken down.  We strive to only use streaming links and help bands/labels/record stores with responsible music embedding/hosting.  


We couldn't keep up with all the e-mails, so we're asking you to simply add your track to our Soundcloud Group.  Please don't message, just upload...we'll listen to every track that is added and if we like it, we'll either directly post to WLFY or contact you for more info.  THANKS!


Hank & Zach

Hank and Zach met at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2004 where they bonded over sharing mix tapes of music they were insulted the other didn't know about.  When Zach left for graduate school at Northwestern University and Hank completed his PHD in Playwriting, they decided to create We Listen For You as a means to communicate with each other about the music they were currently enjoying.  

Hank is a professor at the University Of Scranton, PA and has had original plays staged all over the country.  

Zach has written over twenty five feature length screenplays, some successful, some not so much.
