10 Urgent Things Musicians Need To Do to Prepare for the Holiday Season

The holidays represent a lot of things: time with family, a break from work or school, food, gifts, and some more food. But something that may not be so obvious is that the holidays present great opportunities for musicians.

It may seem early to begin thinking about the holidays, but if you plan accordingly you will have a successful end to your year. We have the top ten things musicians need to do to prepare for a successful holiday season. If you start gearing up now, your music will be front and center when the holiday season is in full swing.

1. Create Something New for Your Fans

The holidays are the largest music-buying season, so distributing a new album or single gets your name in the game. If you don’t have time to release a holiday album, distributing a holiday single can help get your music out there. Think of it this way, someone may search for “Silent Night” and find your cover of it, and then want to check out the rest of your music.

Just keep in mind, that while holiday songs are great, they are seasonal, so it might make more sense to have a focused thematic release, and not to include a Christmas carol on an otherwise non-holiday album.

If holiday music isn’t your cup of cider, consider releasing a remixed single or deluxe version of an older album as a way to offer your fans new material.
