Top 10 ways to get your music on Spotify/Apple Music etc...
In this blog we want to look at ways to get your music on the platforms and online stores that bring in revenue per streams such as Spotify and Apple Music /Tunes. There are hundreds of places to place your music online but most of the industry standard platforms require that you go through some kind of aggregator. In other words a some what reputable company or label will take care of the online distribution logistics for you. This process is always developing and Spotify have hinted at allowing artist to directly upload music themselves. A good way for an independent artist to start releasing music is through Soundcloud, Audio Mack, Youtube and Bandcamp as you can upload the audio yourself. Stars have been found and made on these platforms alone but of course we want our music to reach the widest audience possible!
