now celebrating its seventh year • as featured in iTunes radio tuner!
Why get your music on A Cappella Always and A Cappella Holiday? Easy. First, this is a hobby for me--
so I tend to play almost everything I get; it's guaranteed promotion. Second, I'll link
to your web site! (And that can help sell CDs: I recently received an email from a listener
who said "I started listening a couple of weeks ago... in the first couple of hours, I
already bought both Eclipse CD's and Frost-Free from Cadence, so the only complaints I
have are (1) that your site is draining my wallet and (2) my CD changer is rapidly
filling up with great a cappella music!")
Additionally, whenever your tracks are playing, there will be a link in the player window
that goes directly to a place where people can buy your CD. It's that's easy.
The only requirement for a track to be added to AA or AH is that it be pure a
cappella: any sounds in the song not made with the human body will disqualify it from
being in the playlist! (Thus, vocal percussion is okay, but any more than minimal "real"
percussion, or any piano accompaniment, or whatever, is definitely not ok.)
Please have your music meet these specs (and
a helpful guide on how to import CDs with iTunes, if you're not familiar with the process):
Now, once you're all set, you can upload the music here:
A Cappella Always/A Cappella Holiday Music Uploader.
(If it doesn't seem to work correctly, be sure you have the latest version of the Flash player, which you can get
and you also should be using the most recent version of your web browser.)
You can also email the tracks by using
DropSend, a (free) service that, after you register, will let you send
all the files at once.
Please don't send the tracks as individual files in regular email—
simply put, it tends to not work. (Files get lost, corrupted,
etc.) The two options above are the best way to get me your music.
Just mail them to:

Thanks for the chance to play your music, and for your help in making A Cappella Always and A Cappella Holiday the best
Internet radio stations for the best kind of vocal music, a cappella!
