Why I dropped TuneCore for Distrokid.
Hello all my name is Dre Wells, I’m a artist producer, and songwriter. Over the past years I’ve been looking for better ways to get a bang for my buck. Being an independent artist you pay for literally everything. So when it came to music distribution I was familiar with TuneCore and CDBaby. In the past I used TuneCore for a single a year it was 9.99 and album 29.99. That may not seem bad for some, but if you have an extensive catalog like I do it can be very pricey. So I set out to find where I can save some money and still distribute my music internationally. About 3 years ago I stumbled across Distrokid. At first I was a bit skeptical about the 19.99 year for unlimited releases and 100% royalties. So I did my research like anyone would do. After a ton of research I figured why not try Distrokid. I instantly fell in love with the company. I ended up upgrading after a few days to add more metadata to my releases such as label, release dates, and etc. by switching over I saved hundreds of dollars a year and have been a loyal customer bringing over a few artist and producers on the regular. So for any artist or producer trying to distribute their music give it a shot. I found it to be better than the competitors. Plus Distrokid actually takes user feedback and implement features the community requests. The most recent updates are the Spotify 4 Artist connection and ITunes artist photo. This Spotify feature allows to get analytics on your songs, add a description, change your photo and it instantly verifies your Spotify artist account. With the ITunes feature you can give your ITunes / Apple Music account a more professional look. Those are just a few more to come of course I say that because their always looking for ways to improve and empower the independent artist. Also Distrokid has artists such as Ludicris, 21 Savage, Will Smith, just to name a few, that uses them to distribute music. So that’s just some of the reasons why I dropped TuneCore for Distrokid. You don’t have to take my word for it, try it out yourself, I promise your gonna love it!
