Cambridge Calling 2 – bands wanted

Hi All,

Hope you’re well and enjoying what little sun we’re having.

I’m now starting to work on Cambridge Calling Volume 2, which I’m looking to release through German Shepherd Records later this year. Volume 1, a compilation of Cambridge area bands, was released earlier in March (and is still available as a download) raising money for a local charity, The Arthur Rank Hospice. We’ll be looking at raising money for charity again and would welcome any suggestions for a worthy cause.

I’m contacting you because you’d previously expressed an interest in the series of compilations or I’ve recently been in contact in relation to The Smelly Flowerpot show on Cambridge 105. If you’re interested in contributing a track, could you send your chosen song over as a mastered WAV track please? Dropbox of other file sending sites such as WeSendIt might be the best way to send the file. In addition to this, could you reply with the following information please?

  • Track title and artist name
  • If you have an ISRC number for the track, could you send over please?
  • By return, it will be implied that you consent to German Shepherd Records using your track on the Compilation.
  • If you are already on a label, please confirm they are also happy for German Shepherd Records to use your track on the Compilation. German Shepherd are happy to mention your label on their promo.
  • Suggested Charity
  • If possible, please supply links to your own website/facebook/twitter page and give a brief biography for use on the release.
Please note, we’ll be limiting this release to around 17/18 songs (depending on track lengths) which should be enough to fill a cd should we look at a cd release as well as download. On that basis, I’ll be giving priority to those who showed an interest in the first release but didn’t have a track featured, followed by those who can get all the relevant information back to me promptly. In order to achieve a release date in October, I’ll need all the tracks and relevant information back to me by August 31st latest. For those that don’t get a track onto this Volume, for whatever reason, you will have priority for appearing on Volume 3 which will be slated for a release mid 2018.
I look forward to hearing from you- please let me know if you have any questions.
Finally… feel free to give me a shout if you want any new music airing on The Smelly Flowerpot. 😊
Best Regards
