Distributing Your Music

Learn How to Get Your Music in Front of the Right People



In today's music industry should you release albums or singles? Let me break it down for you in this video. 

What's Inside?

Let me teach you my best practices for releasing your music based on my own experience having released 12 full-length albums (5 of which charted on the Billboard charts) and over 50 singles.  Through this course you'll learn: 

  • How to release your music through all the major platforms (iTunes, Spotify & more) and what factors to consider when choosing a digital distribution company.
  • Strategies and best practices for releasing your music on Spotify.
  • How to run crowdfunding and pre-order campaigns based on my own successful campaign experiences. 
  • Learn from start to finish how I set up and ran a successful album release campaign through Patreon that helped increase my number of Patrons by over 50% during that time. 
  • Copyright, Music Publishing & Royalties including how I release cover songs and how I collect royalties.

I focus on building real relationships with your audience and how to promote yourself and grow an audience through organic (unpaid) traffic, so you'll be able to put all of this advice into practice without needing to spend any money on advertising.
