I sent this out as an email to clients not too long ago, but thought putting it up on the blog might be useful.
You may already know this, but a lot of holiday records are cut around June, July, and August in order to be sure everything’s complete in time for sales at Wal-Mart, and online, etc. (Bear in mind there are exceptions to this).
SO, that means you’ll want to have that Christmas song you’ve been working on ready to go by that time.
THEN, what do you do with it?
Well one place to consider going is to Justin Wilde, also known as “Mr. Christmas”. He’s known within the business as THE publisher and go to guy for Christmas and holiday music. And he’s got a great track record.
The link below is for submitting songs to him:
Justin Wilde Christmas Songs Website
Be aware, he will ask for all publishing on the song.
I recently asked him (via email) about HIS timeline for getting songs on Christmas albums, and he responded that because he chases several markets and they all have different deadlines, he is actually looking for songs 12 months a year.
Please let me know if there’s anything I can do for you, maybe even a Christmas production!
