Deborah,

This week we have made great progress in our pursuit of Pandora play. We are actively eliminating the "physical CD roadblock" by fulfilling Pandora's Bar Code and Amazon.com requirement for the America United single. The new CD is located at http://www.amazon.com/shops/BillMortonPromotions. There is more information posted later under the Pandora section and the Amazon.com section of this report.

We have filed your Live 365 Schedule A document for consideration. In addition, Rock Back, a Live365 station added America United and Psalm on Danny Boy. Their music plays on Pandora.

Radio Submit is now working with iHeart Radio. We contacted the VP of Promotion and A&R at Radio Submit, who has agreed to introduce America United and Clear Skies Ahead for consideration to the iHeart network of stations.

We also included America United and Clear Skies Ahead on our Music Submit account. This tool assists us in submitting your music to genre-specific radio stations, online music magazines, online music directories, blogs, podcasts, record labels, and other electronic music media. Our Music Submit will be launched within a few days. We are utilizing every resource possible to get your name known, your voice heard and your message understood.

We discussed Kickstarter, as an opportunity to fund your upcoming release, From C to shining C. While there is not enough time to during this campaign, If you renew for a second campaign, we would like to attempt crowd-funding for your new album on your behalf. We have our official Kickstarter account at: http://www.kickstarter.com/profile/billmortonpromotions.
.
We have both agreed to extend your campaign to February 7th, 2013 due to the Holiday season. Please keep in mind that much of the work in regards to profiles I've created for you will remain up and functioning, even after your campaign has been completed. If you decide to have us promote you again, there will be faster results due to the already existing online structure. 

This is the twelfth week of your online Weekly Reports, rather than via email. We chose this format because your weekly reports were becoming so complete, that they would no longer fit within email standards (even while zipped). Your weekly reports are available every Monday at 6am at billmortonpromotions.com under the Reports page. http://www.billmortonpromotions.blogspot.com/. We have additionally agreed on 12/21/2012, we will email you a reminder every Monday morning with a link to your completed report. 

We are now on our fifteenth week of your radio promotion campaign.

We back-dated your earlier weekly reports for archival and review purposes:

Also updated your song descriptions with track-by-track summary of genres, motivation for singing and lyrics you provided on: www.Broadjam.com/DeborahWedekind.

Earlier, we updated your biography from "DeDe and Missi will appear as guests on the TV Talk Show, BEING FRANK with Frank D’Angelo, in Toronto in October of 2012". to "DeDe and Missi appeared as guests on the TV Talk Show, BEING FRANK with Frank D’Angelo (episode 58), in Toronto in October of 2012".


We updated your profile tremendously to acquire new radio Adds by including the following:

"DeDe is the kind of recording artist that could receive play on any radio station, terrestrial or online, that plays Adult Contemporary, Americana, Blues, Christian, Country or Jazz.

DeDe (Deborah Wedekind)

"said: “Wee-dee-kind”, and now you know why I go by my nickname"- DeDe

DeDe is from a very musical family of 7 children, and grew up in Katy, TX near Houston & lives in the Houston area.  DeDe went to high school with Renee Zellweger. (More on this later.)


DeDe’s music is primarily Adult Contemporary, and her original, Psalm on Danny Boy charted at #11 in July on non-urban pop radio stations across the US.  It also won a Top 5 Vocalist Award from Singer Universe in Jan. 2012, (I Dreamed a Dream also won in Feb. 2012), and Honorable Mention for Song of the Year in May, 2012.


- She wrote and released America United for the American People for the Election of 2012; to get people thinking about our country, our roots, our freedoms, our blessings we have enjoyed, and to remind us all to get out and vote.


- Clear Skies Ahead was Deborah’s First CD, released in Nov. 2011, with 14 songs:  #1 on internet radio is Stormy Weather/Can't Help Lovin medley, #2 2nd place is tied: Psalm and I Dreamed a Dream, #3 is When I Fall in Love. Her songs play 1000’s of times a week on internet and traditional radio.


DeDe’s a singer/songwriter/arranger and has more than 10 new songs ready to record. Her husband, tenor Larry Wedekind, sings with her on The Prayer.


She will be working with well-known Nashville Producer & multi-time Dove Award winner, Don Koch (said: “Cook”), in January 2013 to record her new EP with 7 songs: C to Shining C, for a March 2013 release.


She’s written 3 great new Christmas songs, and will have a big Christmas SHOW in Houston Dec. 21 & 22 that she wrote and will star in with Larry & Kristen Hertzenberg, (who just ended a 6 year run as Christine in Phantom in Vegas). The show will be called Christmas With The 2 Divas & The Lone Tenor.  It will be at the Nathaniel Performing Center in Kingwood, which is in North Houston.


Sister actress Missi Pyle, has been in numerous movies as a character actor including 2012 Oscar-winning, The Artist, as well as Charlie & the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp.  DeDe has met lots of celebrities thru the years, so ask her about her celebrity stories.  DeDe & Missi appeared as guests on the TV Talk Show, BEING FRANK with Frank D’Angelo, in Toronto in October.


DeDe’s music is a mix of pop, Americana, and jazz, with some Gospel thrown in.  She’s also arranges music. She arranged all the songs on her first CD. She’s been compared to everyone from Michael Buble to Adele, and from Linda Rondstadt to Emmylou Harris. Her next songs will have an edgier Indie Americana Pop feel, as well as the great soaring ballads she’s known for, with a little jazz sprinkled in.


Her music has been and remains on several WORLD TOP 10 CHARTS on Broadjam.com (a singer/songwriter website with over 8 million users), including Female Vocal Production, Blues, World Music, Jazz, Latin, Latin Jazz, Southeast US, Texas, and Mid-Tempo Ballad Top 10 Charts.


DeDe’s tagline is: Real Music for Real Adults. Although DeDe writes mainly pop, she’s also a Crossover Gospel artist.  Recognizing that a lot of the current popular music out there is focused on young teens, and also may have depressing, violent, or negative messages, she decided to “fill the gap”, and write positive music that would appeal to adults, and anyone who appreciates real good music. 


She writes beautiful melodies, powerful and inspiring lyrics, and good clean music full of hope. Her music is like chicken soup for the soul: it fills a void for this type of inspirational music for adults or anyone who’s looking for a more melodious and God-inspired adult contemporary pop alternative to the same old, same old (often teen-only focused music) on the radio.  Her music is not Christian per se, but it contains lyrics and melodies that are inspired by God.  DeDe is a Christian, but is not called to be a Christian Artist, but to write music that “plants the seed”, and to remind people all over the world why we were all put here on earth by God in the first place.


She has a great band who’s leader performed in Vegas for major acts for 25 years.  DeDe and her band are able to travel all over the United States and Canada for shows, bookings and tours.  Booking agents and Event planners can contact her for more info: (281) 844-6494.


Hear and purchase her music on her Official website, Amazon and CDBaby and iTunes. To hear complete versions of her songs & download songs or purchase merchandise visit Reverbnation.


Fans can visit DeDe's facebook, and LIKE DeDe; they can also visit her Official Website and receive a free MP3 of The Prayer.


DeDe is currently a radio promotion client of Bill Morton Promotions of Chicago"



This week, we revised the Christmas show paragraph in your biography from:
She’s written 3 great new Christmas songs, and will have a big Christmas SHOW in Houston Dec. 21 & 22 that she wrote and will star in with Larry & Kristen Hertzenberg, (who just ended a 6 year run as Christine in Phantom in Vegas). The show will be called Christmas With The 2 Divas and The Lone Tenor.  It will be at the Nathaniel Performing Center in Kingwood, which is in North Houston.

We also added a forum entitled "The Story Behind America United" which is the copy you provided to promote your single. http://www.radiosubmit.com/rs/DeDe/forum/The_story_behind_AMERICA_UNITED_1353565752



"The Story Behind AMERICA UNITED
 

The story behind AMERICA UNITED: singer/songwriter DeDe, aka Deborah Wedekind, noticed that a lot of various groups in our country seemed to be bickering & blaming each other for our problems. So she was inspired in July of this year, while in church listening to a patriotic sermon, to write a patriotic song; a song that could help unite our country once again-before the election of 2012. One song that could inspire feelings of unity, (similar to those deeply patriotic feelings we as Americans experienced following the tragic events of 9-11-2001), but in a much more positive way. 

Written in Texas, and produced in Nashville in just over a month, DeDe felt compelled to write the lyrics because she feels that this song can help Americans realize that we need to believe in America and all stand up together for America. Instead of finger pointing, we can ALL BE THE SOLUTION. She believes that this song can help unite our country and make us strong again as a nation, and DeDe thanks YOU for playing her song! She hopes that AMERICA UNITED will inspire every American citizen to think about how blessed we are as a nation, and to vote in the Election of 2012! Just as this song crosses many genres, she also hopes that it will remind us that although “we’re different”, we need to come together and celebrate our “freedom” as one nation under God!

DeDe’s music is a mix of pop, Americana, and jazz, with some Gospel thrown in.  She’s also arranges music. She arranged all the songs on her first CD. She’s been compared to everyone from Michael Buble to Adele, and from Linda Rondstadt to Emmylou Harris. Her next songs will have an edgier Indie Americana Pop feel, as well as the great soaring ballads she’s known for, with a little jazz sprinkled in.

Her music has been and remains on several WORLD TOP 10 CHARTS on Broadjam.com (a singer/songwriter website with over 8 million users), including Female Vocal Production, Blues, World Music, Jazz, Latin, Latin Jazz, Southeast US, Texas, and Mid-Tempo Ballad Top 10 Charts.

DeDe’s tagline is: Real Music for Real Adults. Although DeDe writes mainly pop, she’s also a Crossover Gospel artist.  Recognizing that a lot of the current popular music out there is focused on young teens, and also may have depressing, violent, or negative messages, she decided to “fill the gap”, and write positive music that would appeal to adults, and anyone who appreciates real good music. 

She writes beautiful melodies, powerful and inspiring lyrics, and good clean music full of hope. Her music is like chicken soup for the soul: it fills a void for this type of inspirational music for adults or anyone who’s looking for a more melodious and God-inspired adult contemporary pop alternative to the same old, same old (often teen-only focused music) on the radio.  Her music is not Christian per se, but it contains lyrics and melodies that are inspired by God.  DeDe is a Christian, but is not called to be a Christian Artist, but to write music that “plants the seed”, and to remind people all over the world why we were all put here on earth by God in the first place.

She has a great band who’s leader performed in Vegas for major acts for 25 years.  DeDe and her band are able to travel all over the United States and Canada for shows, bookings and tours.  Booking agents and Event planners can contact her for more info: (281) 844-6494.

Hear and purchase her music on her Official website, Amazon and CDBaby and iTunes. To hear complete versions of her songs & download songs or purchase merchandise visit Reverbnation.

Press Release: The Story Behind America United (Single by DeDe)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bill Morton Promotions (773) 850-0029
BillMortonPromotions@gmail.com


The story behind AMERICA UNITED: singer/songwriter DeDe, aka Deborah Wedekind, noticed that a lot of various groups in our country seemed to be bickering & blaming each other for our problems. So she was inspired in July of this year, while in church listening to a patriotic sermon, to write a patriotic song; a song that could help unite our country once again-before the election of 2012. One song that could inspire feelings of unity, (similar to those deeply patriotic feelings we as Americans experienced following the tragic events of 9-11-2001), but in a much more positive way.

Written in Texas, and produced in Nashville in just over a month, DeDe felt compelled to write the lyrics because she feels that this song can help Americans realize that we need to believe in America and all stand up together for America. Instead of finger pointing, we can ALL BE THE SOLUTION.

She believes that this song can help unite our country and make us strong again as a nation, and DeDe thanks YOU for playing her song! She hopes that AMERICA UNITED will inspire every American citizen to think about how blessed we are as a nation, and to vote in the Election of 2012! Just as this song crosses many genres, she also hopes that it will remind us that although “we’re different”, we need to come together and celebrate our “freedom” as one nation under God!

Pandora

This week we have made great progress in our pursuit of Pandora play. We are actively eliminating the "physical CD roadblock" by fulfilling Pandora's Bar Code and Amazon.com requirement for the America United single. The new CD is located at http://www.amazon.com/shops/BillMortonPromotions.In addition, Rock Back, a Live365 station added America United and Psalm on Danny Boy. Their music plays on Pandora.

Early in our campaign, we only had an America United MP3, but we needed to fulfill the requirement of a physical CD with UPC code to submit it to Pandora for play.

Reference: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0096HH5DI/ref=dm_att_alb1/184-5748701-1644512



Our initial correspondence with Pandora (http://www.pandora.com/)



We have been in conversation with Pandora about adding America United and Clear Skies Ahead to their "Music Genome Project"

The Genome Project according to www.WiseGeeks.com (
http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-music-genome-project.htm) is:
The music genome project is a colossal effort to classify songs by using over 400 “genetic markers” that, applied to a song and taken together, help to create a kind of taxonomy of music. The genetic markers include everything from basic attributes such as whether a song is acoustic or electronic, to subtle qualities of the lead singer’s voice and all aspects of the arrangement -- right down to whether or not hand claps are in the mix. Dissonant harmonies, guitar effects, specific use of drums and cymbals, syncopation, orchestral music, and even subtle influences become part of the song’s DNA map.

The music genome project is the brainchild of 1988 Stanford graduate, Tim Westergren. The actual work of analyzing songs is carried out by a dedicated team of highly qualified technicians and musicians who reportedly spend 30-minutes analyzing every song that becomes part of the music genome project library. Virtually all music genres are included in the project.

You might be wondering what purpose such an interesting project could serve. The answer is to provide music-loving Web surfers with the ability to create free, personalized online radio stations that only play music the listener likes—even when it's music the listener has never heard before.


Pandora describes their "Music Genome Project" at 
http://www.pandora.com/about/mgp as:
We believe that each individual has a unique relationship with music – no one else has tastes exactly like yours. So delivering a great radio experience to each and every listener requires an incredibly broad and deep understanding of music. That's why Pandora is based on the Music Genome Project, the most sophisticated taxonomy of musical information ever collected. It represents over ten years of analysis by our trained team of musicologists, and spans everything from this past Tuesday's new releases all the way back to the Renaissance and Classical music. 
Each song in the Music Genome Project is analyzed using up to 450 distinct musical characteristics by a trained music analyst. These attributes capture not only the musical identity of a song, but also the many significant qualities that are relevant to understanding the musical preferences of listeners. The typical music analyst working on the Music Genome Project has a four-year degree in music theory, composition or performance, has passed through a selective screening process and has completed intensive training in the Music Genome's rigorous and precise methodology. To qualify for the work, analysts must have a firm grounding in music theory, including familiarity with a wide range of styles and sounds. 
The Music Genome Project's database is built using a methodology that includes the use of precisely defined terminology, a consistent frame of reference, redundant analysis, and ongoing quality control to ensure that data integrity remains reliably high. Pandora does not use machine-listening or other forms of automated data extraction. 
The Music Genome Project is updated on a continual basis with the latest releases, emerging artists, and an ever-deepening collection of catalogue titles. 
By utilizing the wealth of musicological information stored in the Music Genome Project, Pandora recognizes and responds to each individual's tastes. The result is a much more personalized radio experience - stations that play music you'll love - and nothing else.



The following is information that I received directly from Pandora after earlier conversation:
Information for Artists Submitting to Pandora:

"Pandora thrives on the little-known and the yet-to-be-discovered. Introducing listeners to material they've never heard before is one of our central missions, and we welcome independent artists from all backgrounds and levels of visibility, working in all styles, to submit their music or comedy for possible inclusion on Pandora.

We have a deep respect for artists and their work, and we take the responsibility of curating Pandora's collection very seriously. We see an ever-growing number of submissions, and the task of selection is made even harder by the limits on our capacity for adding new content. So, while we feel a great affection and respect for everyone who makes the choice to create, the reality is that the majority of the music or comedy we receive does not get selected.

To submit music or comedy to Pandora, you'll need these items:

1) a CD of your music

2) a unique UPC code for that CD (To obtain your own UPC code at a low cost, click here. If you already have a UPC code for this particular CD--for instance, through your record label--use that one).

3) this CD to be available through Amazon as a physical CD (and not just as MP3s)--and for the name of each track to be listed in the Track Listing section on the page for that CD

4) the legal rights to your music

5) a standard free Pandora account, based on a valid email address, that will be associated with this submission

6) MP3 files for exactly two tracks from your CD

Note: It is only possible to submit one CD at a time to Pandora

Once you have all of these items ready to go, you can submit your music to Pandora"


On 10/15/2012, we explored advertising on Pandora and Pandora phone apps. This option was cost-prohibited at a $5,000 minimum start-up. We spoke with Account Executive Michaela Brady. Email correspondence follows:








Note: We have established during our 10/30/2012 phone conversation, that we will be proceeding with submitting Clear Skies Ahead to Pandora traditionally, and America United as a single with no physical hard copy for sale on www.Amazon.com (pending an investment in production of hard copy singles of America United, which we deemed as not cost-effective).

From October until recently, we have been actively pursuing an add on Pandora, but have come across a roadblock with their physical CD requirement for the America United single.

Looking into a possible cost-effective solution, we have created a Kickstarter account at the beginning  to possibly fund the physical  release, official UPC bar code and inclusion into the Soundscan database, and 
CD to be available through Amazon as a physical CD (and not just as MP3s). We spent the week of 1/15 - 1/21/2013 concluding our research, creating our account and brainstorming the value and strategy of crowd-funding. Bill Morton Promotions Kickstarter account is now complete and located at: http://www.kickstarter.com/profile/billmortonpromotions .

Bill,

This type of thing is good to use if anyone is trying to decide whether or not to play my music (specifically big radio like Pandora, Sirius or iHeart Radio).  They like to see success and charting, so it's good to show them this type of thing to help in their decision.  Otherwise they think I'm just another new artist, but if they see real proof of success and a loyal following, then they are much more likely to play any or all of my songs.  I'm attaching the FMQB last chart too for Psalm, these are powerful tools for you to use, you can send them along with the applications, information and your radio add requests for America United and Clear Skies Ahead. Another tool is to tell them I have over 7000 fans and growing worldwide on Facebook, ReverbNation and on my email lists.  I am also in the process of finalizing my CD/EP project with Don Koch in Nashville starting in Jan 2013, he's had 38 #1 hits in the Christian market and is a multi-time Dove winner and Grammy nominee- this is extremely powerful for anyone who knows music.

Thank you for taking the time for this.



Hi Bill. I have 2 of those Artists, Yolanda Hinton's Just Keep Looking up has played once on my live show and Greg Duncan's Tracks have played once on the same show. It was my intention to add them to our playlist rotation but my server was hacked during the show I played them on and I just haven't gotten around to it to date. I hope this helps, let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.




Thank you, Diane.

Appreciate the spins. Would it be easier for you, for me to email you the mp3s, or do you prefer Radio Submit?




Hi Bill. It's Diana, not Diane and I already have the mp3's unless you'd like to send more.. We are all about supporting Independent Artists here at WDGP so feel free. Have a wonderful day.




Thank you, Diana.

It was a long night of work when I sent that email, so I apologize for the mistake. Glad you liked Yolanda and Greg Duncan. If you have the time, could you please give me an honest review of DeDe's song, America United. (attached)

Wow, this song would have played well at either side's convention. Very patriotic. Did you write it?





Thank you for your review, of DeDe's song America United.

My client DeDe is the writer, composer and vocalist of the song. I know some radio stations play music like America United as a prelude to the inaugural address. Would you be interested in adding it for the post-election play?




I would love to play this coming Saturday on my live show. Thanks

Correspondence with KASI
KASI: Mel Crippen,

You have no idea how much of a relief it is to find a website that is easy to maneuver.

At this time I have DeDe as a radio promotion client, and her single, America United, might benefit your listeners.

The song was written by DeDe specifically for the 2012 elections.

Here is a link to her site: http://deborahwedekind.com/

Attached is a MP3 file. Please tell me what you think.


Thank you,

- Bill Morton

Bill Morton Promotions teams up with Radio Submit to strengthen radio promotion campaigns Bill Morton, known as a strong traditional radio promoter while assisting Kate Smith Promotions, set an unorthodox campaign structure to incorporate new media via radio, television, internet, press and street teams with his own company, Bill Morton Promotions.

The most recent addition to his social agenda includes teaming up with multiple online resources including Meetup.com, the Multi-Facet Network and Radio Submit.

"Radio Submit is a powerful interface that allows artists and record companies to deliver crucial artist information to a variety of media outlets, including AM / FM radio, TV, print and digital destinations. Radio Submit was also the first to offer this full service EPK with the added capability of delivering broadcast quality music. Radio Submit was created by and is ran by music business professionals who know the value of helping artists go to the next level and we want to be a part of it". - Radio Submit

The following are Bill Morton Promotions radio promotion clients who have been added to Radio Submit:
