We are now accepting submissions for Songs for the Cure ’12 until JULY 15th, 2012 at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time.
Due to overwhelming growth and response over the past three years, we have changed our submission process. All tracks must be complete at the time of submission.
We are also excited to announce that we’ll be releasing SFTC’12 with the partnership of the Game Music Bundle. Past involvement with GMB has allowed Songs for the Cure to reach a much larger audience than possible in the past, and consequently raise a much larger sum for the American Cancer Society. As such, we expect the content on SFTC12 to be much more catered for a specific audience.
If you’re ready to submit your music, please complete our submission form. Thanks!
Note: If you want submit a cover song, please get permission first – we’re happy to include rearrangements, so if you have any particular questions, shoot me an email at email@example.com. We have included cover songs in the past, so we may be able to help you out depending on what you have in mind.
The THIRD “Songs for the Cure ’11″ CD was released today.
Go listen to it now!
We’ll also be releasing the entire Songs for the Cure ’11 catalog on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital partners within the coming months. As always, we’ll keep you posted!
A large batch of CDs has arrived, so naturally it’s time to start shipping out more CDs! If you haven’t received your Songs for the Cure ’11 discs yet, they will be shipping out on Monday. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and we hope you enjoy your CDs!
Songs for the Cure ’11 has currently raised $2,500 for the American Cancer Society. Admittedly, this is well behind where we’d like to be to reach our goal of $10,000 by April 29th – but still an accomplishment.
If you haven’t done so yet, now is a great time to order SONGS FOR THE CURE ’11:
SONGS FOR THE CURE ’11 has arrived in the form of two albums with a third to follow in the coming weeks. We’ve raised an astonishing $1,700 before the release of the CDs and will be continuing to promote the albums throughout the year.
For those who donated already, you will be receiving two download codes shortly in your email to redeem the albums in your choice of formats (MP3, FLAC, AAC, and more). CDs will begin shipping by the end of the week and a third package with the final CD will ship in the coming month.
The third album, Reiki, has been delayed due to unforeseeable recording problems. Reiki is primarily composed of instrumental pieces and live music that requires the coordination of a talented group of musicians. We’re dedicated to matching their talents with the best quality recording we can provide, and we’d provide no less for our donors.
We apologize for the delay of the release of Reiki and we’ll let you know as soon as the album becomes available.
Songs for the Cure is primarily a cause aimed to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, but right now it is Japan that needs your aid most.
Forward to us a receipt of your donation of $10 or more to a fund established to aid Japan and we’ll send you download codes for Songs for the Cure ’09 and Songs for the Cure ’10.
This offer will expire at the end of TUESDAY, March 29th (Pacific Time), so go ahead and send those receipts to JAPAN@CANCERDRIVE.ORG. (Please allow 24 hours for your codes to be delivered).
Don’t know where to donate? We suggest the Red Cross at www.redcross.org.
