Send Me to Coventry (for Christmas)
Rev up your Christmas spirit, show off your video-making skills, and help support a wonderful cause. Tin Angel Records and For Folk’s Sake are teaming up again to support London’s Integrated Cancer Centre, this time to the soundtrack of Devon Sproule’s new song, “Send Me to Coventry (for Christmas).”
Devon recorded this gorgeous low-fi gem on her phone in Berlin, for a friend, and it landed as a standout track on the recent For Folk’s Sake compilation “For Folk’s Sake, It’s Christmas”. Win the competition and along with various Devon Sproule and FFS-related musical prizes, your video will be linked to Devon’s own video for the song, posted to her website, and announced in her monthly email newsletter. Help us celebrate the season and spread the word about this wonderful compilation!
Here’s how the competition works: E-mail the Tin Angel team – firstname.lastname@example.org – with the subject title “Send Me To Coventry” and we’ll send you a private link to the track.
Make your video – all styles are welcome! Please note that any video using copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright holder, content that is judged to be discriminatory or offensive, or spam, will not be eligible for competition.
Upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo, or any other video hosting server. Post a link to your video on Devon’s Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/devonsproulemusic
The winning video will be featured on Devon’s website and all Tin Angel Records pages, and will receive a signed copy of Devon’s new record “I Love You, Go Easy,” and a “Monk” T-shirt.
Closing date for entries is midnight of New Year’s Day. The winning entry will be announced before Twelfth Night (Friday 6th January).
Good luck and Merry Christmas! View Devon’s clip for “Send Me To Coventry” below.
