Hadley Music & Donna Ulisse release first Christmas music

For the first time in Ulisse’s career and the history of Hadley Music Group, Christmas music was shipped to radio this week. Ulisse penned two songs that excited us at the label so much we decided to contact her producer Keith Sewell and see if he was open to go in the studio with her and track the songs for a digital commercial release as well as a limited shipping to radio. The songs are also available on Airplay Direct for downloads by radio.

The songs are both about the biblical Christmas story of the Christ child’s birth. They are already receiving many downloads by radio and we are excited for Donna to finish writing the album and recording it for full release in 2012.
