Submit your Christmas song for the Independent No.1's CHRISTMAS SPECIAL edition
We are selecting 25 of the best independent Christmas songs for the very first SPECIAL EDITION of the Independent No.1's compilation. This is the 'Independent No.1's CHRISTMAS SPECIAL'.
The Independent No.1's brand has grown through the past 5 years to become one of the most requested and sought after Indie Mainstream compilations by commercial radio, venues, malls and restaurant chains.
The CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (special edition) of the Independent No.1's has been in the works for sometime and been requested constantly by artists, radio and restaurant/retail chains we have been working with these past 5 years. Finally we have put our distribution and promotions plan in action for the 2015 Christmas Holidays and are all set to release the very first of the Christmas editions of the Independent No.1's compilation (Special Edition).
ALL GENRES are accepted, however the song has to be a holiday specific song and can be an original or a cover song (as long as you have the rights to record the song). There is an inclusion fee to be part of this compilation if selected. Please read all details below before submitting.
Just like our annual mainstream Independent No.'s compilation, (currently getting ready to release its 5th anniversary edition compilation), this Christmas special edition will be supported and promoted on a large scale to radio, media and especially venues, malls and restaurants. WOA Entertainment has also been guaranteed radio specials for all tracks of the album this year on FM radio and other radio formats including online radio and podcasts - not just selected tracks but EVERY track of the christmas edition compilation will get commercial radio AirPlay
Due to the album being a holiday specific compilation we will only produce 5000 copies as the first run which will all go towards promotions - radio, press and venues for free. CDs will also be kept in store at major cd and book stores, however many of these stores will be given CDs to giveaway as prizes and giveaways as Christmas gifts.
If you would like to be a part of this highly anticipated and exciting project and receive the high end promotions and support, including adverts on national newspaper the times, radio spots on AIR FM and adverts run on Vh1 that the original Independent No.1's compilation receives, then this is it! No other Indie Christmas compilation can compete with the scale of promotions of the Independent No.1's Christmas Special Vol.1.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: To be part of the compilation, if your song is selected, the artist has to pay the inclusion fee of 250 USD to cover initial costs. From any revenue the album makes, the artist will be paid 8% royalties pro rata, however please note that this is primarily a promotional album with all investments going towards promoting this Christmas compilation and the indie artists. Artists signed to PRO's (ASCAP, BMI etc) will benefit from PRO collections as the compilation will be promoted to commercial radio and major venues. The label is not releasing this album for profits, all profits, if any, are distributed to the artists equally.
Selected artists have to pay the inclusion fee and sign a non exclusive licensing deal to be part of the compilation.
