Easter Sales Are Right Around The Corner

Retailers never miss the opportunity to take advantage of a holiday so they can have a sale. The next big one on the calendar is Easter. That's right, one week from this Sunday it will not only be about colored eggs and chocolate bunnies, but also about sales, sales, and more sales. Folks will be filling up stores, restaurants, and malls cashing in on all the great deals out there. This will also be the beginning of Easter vacation for many schools. Families will be out enjoying themselves everywhere. If you want to make sure your priority music is overhead and playing while this increased opportunity for exposure presents itself. Now is the time to get it into What's In-Store Music. Just fill out the submission form and let us take care of the rest.

Can You Please Do Us A Favor?

Asking For A Friend

(recent examples of what songs have looked like when loaded in the music system)

This is just a simple housekeeping issue, it's a request that was made to us by the fine folks who program your songs in stores for us. When using our submission form you are asked to upload a couple of items, one is the music itself, either as a WAV file or an MP3. It's a simple step, you select the file and upload it. This is the file the programmers will upload and use to make decisions as to how to tag your song to make sure it's played as often and as widely as possible. When they upload the song into the system it should just read the song title and artist, that's it. Song title and artist. If it's not done this way, it creates extra work for the programmers to manually correct it, increasing the possibility of human error, which could result in an incorrect spelling of the artist or song or improper tagging, which could direct music to the wrong playlists.

Here’s an example of a song we recently received and what it looked like loaded in the system VS, what it would look like if it was named with just the title and the artist:




Hannah Kerr

You can see how the simple step of making sure your file is labeled with the title and name only makes all the difference in the world. We appreciate you taking the time to read this, and the programmers want to thank you in advance for making this simple correction.

"Never Rains Forever"

"I wrote 'Never Rains Forever' at the beginning of 2022. During that time, I found myself reflecting on personal experiences of loss, heartbreak, and the struggles that we all face at some point in life. Drawing inspiration from legendary artists such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Prince, I aimed to infuse my own authentic style and message into the song.

The central theme of the song revolves around the idea that no matter how stormy and challenging life may be, it is essential to hold onto faith and hope. It is a reminder that storms, just like all things in life, are temporary. Dark places will eventually see the light.

'Never Rains Forever' speaks to those who may have lost loved ones, those who are going through emotional turmoil, or those who are longing for the day they meet a beloved spouse, friend, or community. It serves as an anthem of encouragement, resilience, and the importance of keeping the flame of hope alive."

Out & About With Judah & The Lion

February 28th at No Vacancy in Hollywood, CA

What a wonderful night! The sky was clear, the moon was out, and the stage was set at the very cool speakeasy known as No Vacancy. I couldn't think of a better way to enjoy this intimate acoustic set from Judah & The Lion. They were there to play selections from their forthcoming album "The Process", which is scheduled to be released on May 10th. The album explores the five stages of grief, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. You could hear a pin drop as they made their way through this very personal set of songs, leaving the audience mesmerized with each note. In between songs, the guys lightened it up a bit, playing with the audience, which was made up of industry professionals, music supervisors, licensing people, and the like. What I took away most from the evening was the crowd's collective love for this band. You could feel that everyone there was excited to hear the music and to do their part to help bring it to the rest of the world. I can't wait for you all to hear it! Thank you to Paul Steele, from Triple 8 management for hosting and allowing us to be a part of this special project.

Have a great week,

Scott Emerson
