Wizard Rock

Every year, Leaky produces an album of wizard rock Christmas music, the profits of which benefit charity. We’ve raised a ton of money for good causes using the very simple magic of rocking as hard as possible. Last year, we opened half the album to submissions and it made it one of our best ever.

So this year, the ENTIRE album will be open submissions.

We are holding a contest for any wizard rock band to submit a track. Of the entries we receive, some will be selected to go on the album (which will be printed in a very limited physical run and made available for digital purchase as well; also, a purchase of each physical copy will come with a digital download. The physical copies will be sent out in early December). The rest of the entries will be bundled into a free download you can get right on the site. We can’t wait to feature your music! That said we have some….


  • Your track MUST be Harry Potter and winter holidays-themed.
  • You MUST have the track sent to [email protected] by November 8. There are ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS to this.
  • Your track MUST be exclusive to the Jingle Spells 5 album (it is all right if it has been available in single – not as part of any other album – form previously, but by submitting the track you agree that this track will from now on only be on Jingle Spells 5). [Tracks available as part of the free album do not have to be exclusive.]
  • Entries MUST be in WAV or AIFF format. You can use a file-sharing service like or to send the files.

That’s it! Get recordin’!

This album will be available for pre-sale in November and shipped out in the first week of December only.

Good luck everyone!
