AudioHammock does not discuss review scores with musicians or artists prior to publish and our staff makes every effort to contain completely factual information upon publication. Artists and musicians may submit content or material to AudioHammock but doing so will not award any favor or special consideration when it comes to published articles. Our writers will not accept any gifts unless they are awesome.
