The internet has made it easier than ever for you to release your music, but with so many artists competing for listeners' eartime, posting a few tracks on your personal website isn't really going to cut it. What you need is a service that gets your music onto all the major digital platforms and in front of the industry people who matter, and that service is Record Union.
Forget sending demos to labels: with Record Union, your music is automatically released on the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Beatport and Tidal, along with all the other major online stores. You retain all the rights to your work, and have the chance to feature on Tidal Discovery and Global Spotify playlists.
What's more, Record Union can help to connect you to A&Rs, booking agents and managers. Sony Music is the first major label to sign up to the new Discovery feature; once you're onboard, Sony's A&Rs will have access to all your vital metrics, such as number of Spotify plays and how many listeners you have in each country. So, if you're creating a buzz, the industry will know about it.
You may also be invited to Record Union HQ for a Breakfast Session, where you'll be able to perform three songs in front of influential music business movers and shakers.
You can sign up now for free on the Record Union website. The pricing model is flexible, so you only pay for the coverage that you want. You could have your music online within a matter of days, and then keep track of your play stats and receive detailed royalty statements once you start to make some money. With Record Union, you can take your talent out of the bedroom and enjoy the worldwide exposure that you've always dreamed of.
