WHO/WHAT: Macon Music CD Accepts Submissions from Middle Georgia Musicians

WHEN: March 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015



Macon is known for its music history and NewTown Macon and Shadow Sound Studio want Macon to continue to be known for its music scene. The partnership between Shadow Sound Studio and NewTown Macon is to create a compilation CD of Middle Georgia music to promote the great sounds coming from our local artists.

Macon Music CD Volume 1 Submissions will be accepted between March 1, 2015 at 12: 00 A.M. and March 31, 2015 at 11:59 P.M. Only digital submissions will be accepted through and CDs will not be accepted. If you have any issues, please email [email protected]. NewTown Macon and Shadow Sound Studio will not accept phone calls and will not provide feedback or comment on selection process.

Once submitted, a panel of judges will listen to and rate all submissions. Using these ratings, NewTown Macon and Shadow Sound Studio will collaborate to select ten winning tracks that represent a broad and diverse group of styles, artists and genres. Tracks do not need to be professionally recorded for consideration and all genres of music will be considered.

The ten selected artists chosen by the judges will have their track professionally recorded or re-recorded and produced at Shadow Sound Studio in Downtown Macon, at no cost. If needed, Shadow Sound Studio will provide production services and play instruments required to create the music recording. The ten-track record will be created into a CD with a locally designed sleeve case. NewTown Macon will own the master recording produced by Shadow Sound Studio. The record will be uploaded to streaming music services, and made available to all locally owned restaurants, bars and entertainment venues in Middle Georgia for unlimited playback. Lastly, each group or performer of the winning track will receive 25 copies of the disc to give out for promotions and the group or performer may order an unlimited number of extra discs at cost. However, the artists may not directly profit from the discs.

In Summer 2015, Macon Music will host a promotional launch party for all of the winning musicians to perform for the community, at no cost.
