The Music Of Tomorrow — For The Caller Of Today
The New "CALLER-on-SNOW" Deal
Would you like to record a vocal on SNOw?
Here is how the new “Caller-on-Snow” deal will work
(please read through to the end of this text):
- To be a “Caller-on-Snow”, you will need to be a paid-up, current, Regular Member of the Ambassador Club; if you are not already a Member you will need to join (at a cost of $150.00 - if part of a “Caller-on-Snow” deal).
- You will need to purchase three more Ambassador Club Memberships, from the current (i.e. 2017) Edition, to record a Vocal, on a specially produced piece of music; you are allowed to sell-on, to recover your investment.
Terms and Conditions, concerning selling-on these further three Ambassador Club Memberships:
- They will be valid for three years, after which time they will be deemed to have “expired”
- You can only sell these places to people who are not already (or not currently) a Regular Member
- You cannot use these places to pay for your own (or anyone else’s) Membership
- Sting Productions would take over responsibility for any new Regular Members, to whom you had “sold-on” your extra spaces; you would not be responsible for their continued membership.
Recording a Singing Call:
There is a certain style of voice that sells records and there is a
certain style of song that fits a certain style of voice; the important
thing to do is to find the song that will achieve these criteria; these
are the steps:
- Find a Tune that you feel could be “made-over” into a Square Dance Singing Call
- Agree an arrangement that will be effective; this includes:
- Arrangement of parts of the song (how to create the seven parts of the Singing Call).
- The Rhythm style to be used
- The instrumentation that would work best
- The correct Key to use for recording the music
- Any special elements e.g. Key Changes, Rhythm Breaks, long/short introduction etc.
- Record the Music - I will arrange for this to be done, in accordance with our agreed arrangement.
- Record the Vocal - You will record the Vocal at a studio that you find; the studio cost to paid by you.
- Once the production is ready, it will be released as soon as possible (or to meet your requirements). As soon as it is ready to release, this new tune will be sent out - FREE OF CHARGE - to all “paid-up” Members of the 2017 Ambassador Club and will become available to other Callers to buy as a Single from our Web-Site/shop!
- Your contact details, including a picture and a short biography (that you will provide) will be added to the Snow page on our Web-Site/shop.
- The option to record further Singing Calls, on this same basis, will be available - should you wish...
It is my intention that Snow will be thought of as a “Thunderbolt”
label, set-up to provide for quick releases (of current popular songs),
as well as offering a “Showcase” for Callers who want the chance to
“try-their-luck” at recording a Vocal; it is a stand-alone label not
just a “Sub-Label” of Sting, it never has been and never will be!
Sting Productions Ambassador Club “Caller-on-Snow” releases will only be made available in digital formats (CD and MP3), not in Vinyl, as the production of Vinyl is no longer a viable option.
Finally, if you have any further questions etc. please let me know.
