All Music Artists:
CONTACT US: firstname.lastname@example.org
FIRST OF ALL: WE ARE NOT A RADIO STATION, which we're
often mistaken for. Song
submissions sent to us are placed on a free-access download page
for free play or downloading. A site visitor can immediately listen
to, or download and save, any song without charge. We will
provide a link back to the artist's homepage when the
information is provided, but aside from that, we do not accept any advertising at all. Contributors are not charged for their songs being
here and do not receive payment for them being downloaded. Word
for Life World Ministries enforces its ZERO-SPAM Policy. Still
interested? Read on!
Thank you for coming to this page and reading
about adding your music to our site. We would be happy to add
your music if it meets our very few required criteria for
1 - It must glorify God. We especially
like uplifting vocals, mixed tracks, acapella, and
guitar music, but that's far from the entire list. Please include lyrics when
possible; especially with raps.
2 - You don't have to ask permission before sending your
submission, all are welcome. Please submit your music in .MP3
format if possible but that is not strictly required. If you
don't know how to do MP3's, use whatever you DO know and I'll
convert it. To help me keep track of them, please send them to email@example.com
. If you want to send several files at once, try one of the many
big-file sending services such as sendspace.com, DropBox,
GoogleDrive, or whatever you have. For massive uploads, FTP can
be made available on request.
3 - You do not have to be a large group. Or even a
"group." Whether its just one person or a
group of friends gathered together in their garage singing/playing their OWN works is just fine.
Some of our current artists are "singles" that do not
belong to an organized group. So sit down to the piano, or grab a guitar, use your
voice alone or with it, and hit your RECORD button.
4 - For legal reasons, we can only accept music submissions from
the person who holds the copyright or their authorized
representative (such as their agent) on the submission, not from the
public. You may submit links to things online if you like, and
we may post them at a later time on our upcoming "Favorite
page. We reserve the right to ask for a signed release
affirming that we have legal permission to place
the music here if needed. This is also intended to make sure that all
artists are aware of their musical "presence" here and
approve of it. Under U.S. Copyright Law, the person who creates
a song is considered the copyright holder unless they are hired
to do it, in which case the copyright defaults to their
employer. For information on U.S. Copyright law, we suggest
you view this PDF document about copyright basics. It will open
in a new window: U.S. Copyright Office
Copyright Tutorial it is an extensive but easy
to read tutorial on the subject. Songs appear to violate ©
copyright are removed.
5 - I try to post submissions on a regular basis, but I am a
school teacher, husband, father, grandfather, and all that as
well, so sometimes "life" gets in the way of my best
intentions. However, if you've submitted your work more than a
month ago and still don't see it here, feel free to ask about
it, as something may have happened to it. I have a pretty open
mind about most types of music, but reserve the right to make
the final decision as to what is published here or not, and if I
can't understand the lyrics, its not likely to be included. I
encourage you to send a copy of the song's lyrics if available,
but that is -not- a requirement.
Return for Your Music Submissions:
1 - We generally feature artists in the order received at the top of our music list until the next one
comes along. Then you just move down a line or two as needed for
space. If a long period of time between submissions
elapses, we'll take the lower ones and move them up and so
on. Once in a while, we may totally re-arrange the list for
better readability. Your position in the list has nothing at all
with how much I like it.
2 - If you have a website, we will encourage OUR visitors to
come to your site with a prominent hyperlink on every song's
description line. If you don't have a website and would like an
email link, just let us know. If you need a website page or two
for we may be able to provide a free one for you on
our site - just ask and I'll help you get started as time
3 - If
you can think of any questions we have not addressed here,
please write and we'll normally respond within 48-96 hours. Our
email address is : firstname.lastname@example.org.
4 - Please remember,
the Christian artists that each gave us permission to place their
music on this website did so on an "honor system." They're
trusting you to download the music, share it, give it to others, but
not to charge for doing so. It's OK if someone pays you back for the
actual costs of mailing or burning a disk of these songs to
them, but don't do it just for profit.
5 - Finally, you will receive one (1) "Warm And Fuzzy Feeling"
for every work you share; especially when you realize it might
be YOUR SONG might just what it took to turn a hardened soul towards Jesus. Good luck!
