The AMP Vol I
For those that are not aware, Fais is too busy to publish the album, so I have volunteered to do it.

Link to the Charity we are donating proceeds to:
http://www.vh1savethemusic.com/

I have completed an application form for the charity, it will take a few days before they come back to me.
They have also sent a couple of logo's to me, which will be included on the album. I'll post here once it's done.

Waiting on Tunecore.com to come back to me, regarding any legal stuff.

In the meantime, if any of members who's songs are on the album have a wav file of the song, please send them to me.  If you don't have the song in wav, I will convert the Mp3
denis.ahmet@gmail.com

The most important thing is marketing the album, this is where all members can help. We need to make as many people/organizations aware as possible. I suggest we start with family and Friends first. We can also do Flyers etc....
It would be amazing if we can get it on some good radio stations to promote it. this is going to be the most challenging part if the album is going to be a success.
I was thinking of perhaps doing some research to see if any other small organizations like us who have launched an album for charity and see how they marketed the album.

Cheers

Any ideas suggestions on how we could market the album would be welcome

Here's the relpy I got back from Tunecore:

All funds come to your TuneCore account.  Let me know if you have more questions. Talk to you soon!


Best,

Justin Mitchell

Here is what Skunk sent me, you can copy, paste and edit it and email it to me

"I give permission to Denis Ahmet for my recording "Whisper in the Night" to be used as a track on the BandAmp.com compilation album Volume 1

Note if you want to send a wav file to me, you can use yousendit.com free of charge upto 100MB

Probably best to keep the actual album name which is "The AMP Vol I"

VH1 Rock N Roll Fantasy
Here's a dream.  The Amp Volume 1 strikes a chord with the general popualtaion generating millions in sales for VH1's Save the Mustic Campaign.  Thrilled by the response, VH1 starts heavy rotation of "Thank You to BandAmp" commercials, playing our music 24/7. Soon they create a BandAmp special inviting all the Ampers to a "Live BandAmp Jam Session Benefit Concert" with special guest stars ranging from Eddie Van Halen to Eric Clapton.  Attended by executives from all the major record labels they offer us all million dollar contracts and fly us to professionally record all our songs at Abby Road Studios. Upon the release of our albums, VH1 promotes them heavilly in thanks for "TheAmp Volume 1" and within weeks were battling against each other for the number one spot on the charts.......Ahhhh Dreams they can come true. ...

Haha, well that was an entertaining read. I hope something like that happens as well. My dream is that this album really catches on with the public, and not only will the artists involved reach their musical goals, but we also raise money that will actually HELP out schools - because I know when I was younger that my music programs in school sucked, so this charity has a special meaning to me

I was thinking about including a little bio of each participant in this album so people knows what they are listening to. I don't know if that's possible for virtual albums, but it'd be nice.
I'll send my copyright letter and my .wav file soon.

I'd be interested to read what you have to say about everyone. Maybe some sort of write up on the front page would be cool I guess. That can be posted when the album is officially released. Good ideas...
