What online music distribution services offer

With an online music distribution service, artists, bands, producers and independent labels can sell their music - even without a record deal. The distributor forwards their songs to the leading online music shops. Afterwards, fans around the world can buy the music as download (on iTunes, Amazon, Google) or stream it (on Spotify or Deezer). The music distribution service administrates the worldwide publication and sales of the releases.

A music distribution service is an easy and cost-effective solution to outsource all administrative tasks of selling music digitally, especially for newcomers and small labels, as well as experienced artists without a record deal.
