SOUNDS FROM THE CIRCLE XII - 2020
from Suzanne Doucet and Beth Hilton
We are pleased to announce that we are starting to work on our next compilation SOUNDS FROM THE CIRCLE Vol. XII 2020. You can submit a track to firstname.lastname@example.org
As in past years, we will manufacture this promotional album of MP3s on CD in an eco-sleeve with a 4 color booklet, and distribute it to targeted audiences throughout the next year. You will also receive 25 copies for your own use, and be encouraged to join in our valuable cross-promotional social media efforts. Each year, we up the ante, and this year we will add new platforms and new accounts.
Participation: Those of you who participated in our last eleven projects are familiar with the process explained below; thank you for all of the amazing music you’ve shared! Upon final production, you will receive 25 copies of the MP3 CD for your own personal use, to sell at your concerts or to use as giveaways.
It will be very beneficial for you to have your album or single released & distributed on all digital platforms in advance of the compilation’s release date, since we will promote playlists and links to your digital sales channels, which can create additional revenues for each participating artist. When consumers link to listen to our playlists, or buy individual tracks from participating artists, each artist will get paid directly via their aggregators. By the way, if your album is not yet complete, CD Baby allows you to release a single track in digital format which can be distributed on all digital outlets worldwide.
For those who are new to this process, please send us a link to a track (or 2 more) so that we can listen and pre-approve. After approval please send materials requested and payment via paypal to email@example.com
Timeline: Our goal is to manufacture in Spring 2020 and start promoting the compilation soon thereafter.
- Early Bird fee ends November 30th 2019. The “early bird” fee is $290 (includes Paypal processing fee) - The price thereafter is $375 without exception.
- The final deadline for all submissions will be January 5th, 2020.
We are looking forward to making our 12th Sounds from the Circle compilation the best yet!
Peace and blessings,
Suzanne & Beth
