Submit a Proposal
Cedille is always interested in learning about new Chicago-based artists. Below you will find our guidelines for recording proposals. Once we have received your completed proposal, it will be presented to Cedille’s President and Artistic Advisory Committee, who meet 2–3 times/year to consider all potential recording projects. Please note, so that we can best carry out Cedille’s mission, we are interested in reviewing projects at the earliest stage possible and are rarely able to accept projects that have already been recorded or are in the post-production/release stage.
Please also be aware that because of the high demand from current and prospective Cedille artists, we plan our recording budgets and release schedule very far in advance. If your proposal comes in the second half of the year and requires recording in the same calendar year (and doesn’t come already funded) we will be unable to accept it. Same is true if your project needs to be released within (or even close to) a year of the date of your proposal: our timeline from proposal to release is typically more than two years.
