Interesting In Donating a Track?

Skip to the bottom

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    Each year I put together a compilation which is sold and the money is donated to the Lupus Research Alliance through a walk-a-thon team I put together.

    In the past I have done a physical CD but in the interest of cutting costs and being able to include more artists, I am keeping it strictly as a digital compilation that will be sold through bandcamp. The link for the compilations is https://rockthelup.bandcamp.com/

    If you are interested please let me know, I'd prefer the track be previously unreleased anywhere since that exclusivity will help sell downloads. Due to rights issues, I can't include any covers. I will include liner notes with a link to your preferred site (social media or actual website).

    You can email me directly at wachacatherine@gmail.com if you are interested or have any questions.

    Edit: This will be released in late May / early June.

  • @fuzzy  Mar 14

    Yes ma'am, I'll gladly donate a track, but most of my stuff is experimental weirdo music and so I'm not sure how appropriate it might be for a compilation. 😞

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @fuzzy I am open to all genres of music, I would love to have one of your tracks!

  • @tcelliott  Mar 14

    I'll offer up something.

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @tcelliott Thanks, I'd love yo have something from you!

    @wacha
    You're welcome to use this one if you'd like. http://fawm.org/songs/79467/

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @quork Thanks, I love it! I downloaded it so I have that, can you either let me know here or shoot me an email to catherinewacha@yahoo.com so I can properly credit you and put where people can find your music in with the liner notes?

    Thanks Again!

    I sent you an email with details but didn't include a link. Here it is. https://soundcloud.com/user-471608915

  • @pipewrench67  Mar 14

    Are you looking for something complete and Mastered or will you be having the whole thing mastered?

  • @persaab Mar 14

    If you find any of my fawm songs interesting enough. 😏

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @pipewrench67 - I adjust the audio levels so they are all similar volumes but I don't master any of the tracks.

    @persaab - I really like a few of your songs, and would be happy to have any of them. Can you please email me one of them at catherinewacha@yahoo.com? Please include a link to where people can find your music as well as how you would like to be credited.

    @quork - I didn't get your email, I have the song. Can you please shoot me another email so I have all of your contact information to include along with the liner notes?

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @fuzzy - Let me know if you have one track in particular that you would like to donate.

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @tcelliott when you get a chance please email me at catherinewacha@yahoo.com with the track as well as how you want to be credited and where people can find your music. Thanks!

  • @dragondreams  Mar 14

    I'd like to offer up this one: http://fawm.org/songs/80470/
    I didn't like it at first, but having sat down a few times to attempt to redo the guitar work, I've kinda fallen in love with it. I'd be delighted if it went to a good cause. 😀

  • @fuzzy  Mar 14

    Give this a listen; http://fawm.org/songs/85533/
    If you think it's appropriate, I'll drop you an email.

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @quork - No luck, can you try wachacatherine@gmail.com?

    @dragondreams - I like your song a lot, I downloaded the file. Can you please shoot me an email to wachacatherine@gmail.com with your information so I can credit you properly, let people know where to hear your music and let you know when it is released? Thanks!

    @fuzzy -Yes, I like that one a lot, I downloaded it. Can you please shoot me an email to wachacatherine@gmail.com with your information so I can credit you properly, let people know where to hear your music and let you know when it is released? Thanks!

  • @tcelliott  Mar 14

    I'll have to select a track. Is there a due date? I'm probably gonna have to do a quick remix and self master.

    Any particular style you're looking for?

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @tcelliott I need the tracks by mid to late April. I am open to pretty much anything. This is the first time I've asked for folks outside of my local area. My local artists tend to give me more singer-songwriter stuff but I welcome any genre.

  • @siebass  Mar 14

    @wacha does it need to be from this year? Is it a limited use license? If the answers are "No" and "Yes", then I have a track I'd like to send you from last year that might be fitting.

  • @jamkar  Mar 14

    I would like to submit this track. http://fawm.org/songs/81062/
    Email is in route with my particulars.

  • @wacha  Mar 14

    @siebass No, the song doesn't have to be from this year. I prefer it be previously unreleased (that is not for sale as anywhere as of now and maybe for a few months after the compilation is released).

    I have never been asked about the limited use license before but I believe the answer is yes. I would include the song on the bandcamp compilation, you are credited as the owner and holder of the copyright when I add the song.

  • @tcelliott  Mar 14

    I have a song I submitted to Songfight! last year that I think would be cool. A little more ambient than my usual stuff. It's not for sale anywhere, but it was linked on the songfight website for 10 days and is in their archive. Would that be a problem?

  • @scottlake  Mar 15

    This is right up my alley. I’m kind of dull as it pertains to releasing my music. Last year I joined BMI, how would that affect things, if at all?

  • @johnstaples  Mar 15

    Hi @wacha

    You said "I'd prefer the track be previously unreleased anywhere since that exclusivity will help sell downloads"

    Would a track posted publicly on FAWM count as previously unreleased? How about posted publicly on a site like SoundCloud but not officially released/offered for sale?

    And precisely what do you mean by "exclusivity"? You seek publication rights? Some other sort of exclusive arrangement?

    I've donated tracks before to charitable causes and usually grant non-exclusive rights to use and sell the song. This leaves me with full ownership and all rights to do whatever I want with the song too.

  • @wacha  Mar 15

    @tcelliott have been posted on another site is fine, I try to get songs that are currently for sale anywhere.

    @davidhendricks I love all 3 of these but I think "La Jolla To Leo Carillo" is my favorite. I'd love to include it, I downloaded the song directly from your soundcloud page can you please shoot me an email at wachacatherine@gmail.com?

    Please include:
    How you would like the song to be credited
    If the song is for sale anywhere else
    A link to where people can find your music

    @scottlake Being a member of BMI would not affect things. I can include that you are part of BMI in the liner notes.

    @johnstaples If the song was posted publicly on FAWM I would still consider it previously unreleased since. By exclusivity, I just mean that it either hasn't been released yet or you aren't planning on releasing it in the next few months. It's really a loose agreement, I take no rights over your work. I'll be promoting the compilation and hope others involved will as well. Having your tr

  • @helenseviltwin  Mar 15

    Happy to donate a track. Let me know what sort of thing you want and/or if there's any of my tracks you'd particularly like and I can do proper recordings.

  • @persaab Mar 15

    @wacha im tomorrow home. I’ll send you a mail then.

  • @wacha  Mar 15

    @helenseviltwin I am open to anything, I honestly love all of your music so anything you would want to donate would be very welcome.

    I end up with everything from traditional folk music, to hard rock to electronic and everything in between

  • @helenseviltwin  Mar 15

    @wacha - ok - I shall polish something up and send it across.

  • @johnstaples  Mar 15

    @wacha looks like FAWM cut off the rest of your post. 😞

  • @wacha  Mar 15

    Yes, it did. That's what I get for being so wordy.

    @johnstaples If the song was posted publicly on FAWM I would still consider it previously unreleased since. By exclusivity, I just mean that it either hasn't been released yet or you aren't planning on releasing it in the next few months. It's really a loose agreement, I take no rights over your work. I'll be promoting the compilation and hope others involved will as well. Having your track only available on my Rock the LUP for a few months helps drive the sales and more money for the Lupus Research Alliance but I definitely am not looking to take any rights away from anyone who is donating their song.

  • @barrygoldman  Mar 15

    I can put down my track "Nuevo Dia". I will be using it on my upcoming album. It's on Soundcloud and will be on Bandcamp whenever I'm done my next album. At the moment it's sort of unreleased...I don't have anything else to put down, and I'd like to use something so it's up to you on this.

    I'm not sure my music, in terms of recording quality and all would fit well however. But I offer it anyway.

  • @sailingmagpie  Mar 15

    I'd be happy to donate a track. Might need to do some tidying up and polishing before it's ready for release though.

  • @siebass  Mar 15

    @wacha The song I was thinking of is this one; it is available on my bandcamp and has been for a while, however I still think you may want to include it. Let me know either way. Link is here: https://siebass.bandcamp.com/track/i-...

    @fuzzy It will be released late May / early June. I will send you an email with the link once it has been released.

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 16

    I can send you a piano piece I've just recorded if acoustic piano is okay for you?

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 16

    Just emailed you with the same question. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • @johnstaples  Mar 16

    @wacha I looked for something mostly finished and also unreleased and came up with this one I wrote during 2017 50/90 if you are interested. It has been played on a couple of radio stations, one in Canada and one in Ireland but I have not yet officially released or promoted it so it is essentially unreleased!

    Hold On (With Every Thing You've Got)

    Also I checked out your 2017 Rock the LUP Volume VIII and you have some really nice music assembled there! I listened to several songs and really liked your Mandy Lane!

    Thanks, I have always been lucky and have been able to get the best local artists for my compilation, I'm really excited to be able to open it up to even more great artists.

    Thank you for your kind words on "Mandy Lane", that was the first song I recorded myself and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

    @musicsongwriter acoustic piano would be great, I love having the most diverse music possible.

  • @rustyp  Mar 19

    Hi @wacha  If I donate a track, does that keep me from releasing it on a project of my own in the future?

  • @wacha  Mar 20

    @rustyp Not at all, I just ask that you don't release for a few months to help drive sales. Your fans are more likely to buy the compilation if they are getting a song of yours that they can't currently get anywhere else.

  • @zoom  Mar 20

    I am happy to donate a song too (though I also did mostly experimantal spoken word weirdness this FAWM) . I'm thinking the best one might be the one we did as a three way collab with Klaus mixing/mastering and vocals and another FAWMER writing the lyrics - as the production is pretty good . I'll see if I can find it and send.

    Hi there. I'm happy for you to use "School Days Are Over" if you want. I'm still on the lookout for a vocalist to add vocals so in my eyes it's still incomplete but you're welcome to use in its current state.

  • @coolparadiso  Apr 9

    Sent you an email. Krayzie and I are in.

  • @jonmeta  Apr 9

    Definitely. A couple of my friends have Lupus and I’m glad to help. If you still need tracks, the best for this is probably “Strada Alta”. It’s upbeat and quite silly. It’s not been released anywhere, nor is it likely to be. I’m BMI.
