He may not be coming this year! According to this song we just finished recording, Santa is too stressed out to do his Christmas Eve duty!
Santa Is Going On Strike: a light hearted, fun song aimed at country radio with a “pull-’em-out-of-their-seats” dance groove and some “bro-country rap/hip hop” sections program directors should consider adding to their playlist.
Are you a recording artist? You might wish to add “Santa” to your upcoming Christmas album. (If you haven’t recorded a Christmas album yet, stay in the business long enough and you will, you WILL!).
Take a listen to this clip:
The full version has two sections where it deviates from the Blake Sheltonish “All About Tonight” country rhythm: one section is pure rap, the second, hip hop style.

If your child shows talent in the area of Rap, Pop or Country music, your first step should be to have a demo made. If that turns out as good as you suspect it might then you incorporate that as part of an entire album or even pitch your child’s talent to movie producers and A & R people in the music business.
Our producer will evaluate your child’s talent and team them with appropriate song material. He’ll then write the charts for the musicians to play, hire them and schedule the recording session. Your child does NOT have to be present for any of this, we can do it completely over the Internet.
We cut Music Only Mix In Your Child’s Key. For example here
s a recent rap song we produced for a child to rap with:
Step 2: A young singer, such as Samantha will sing or rap on it as a guide for your child. Copies of both the music-only version and the guide track version are sent to you almost instantaneously over the Internet.
A Samantha guide vocal:
Step 3. Your child sings or raps on the “music only” version. At that point it can be mixed either locally or your child’s vocal can be sent back to us to be mixed in with the music.
If you do think your child has talent then it’s important that you ACT NOW! e-mail us at
