My First Step Into Music Production

Steve cp


blog-0694205001393685620.jpgLast year,I entered a Christmas song writing contest,an international one,with no expectations of winning,and I took third place with my song lyrics,'Our Dogs gave us Fleas for Christmas',a lighthearted look at including our pets in on the Christmas celebration.All of us that view our pets as members of our families can identify with this song,it involves our pets from their point of view.I sent it in to a music promotion company with just two verses,they sent me a letter saying how good it was,so I added another verse and entered it in the contest mentioned above.I found out just last night I took third place,which includes a pro demo,and distribution on Star Tune,itunes and Amazon......I am completely new to this,and have not a clue as to what happens next.I need answers,and do not want to wait until they are opened on Monday.Some directions,please???thanks,Steve.


I was curious, so I searched Steve. This was a "Paramount" contest, which you really should have specified. Here's a copy of the announcement......

"Award of Honor: Steve Phelps of Montague, MI, has won the Award of Honor for his lyric “Our Dogs Gave Us Fleas For Christmas”. Steve has earned a single instrument with vocal demo on CD, PLUS $60 in cash. AND his winning entry, when fully produced, will go on StarTune.com, iTunes and Amazon.com."

Good luck! Based on everything I've heard about Paramount, you're gonna need it!

This surely is super late, but a Congratulations is always in order. Especially that I'm looking to enter contests of this sort. Hehehe. I've also had pets growing up and do share the sentiment that our pets are a part of our family. It's nice that they, our pets, now ha a Christmas song.
