How independent artists can distribute their music on major platforms for free

RouteNote is partnered with music distribution company RouteNote; a service that allows independent music makers to get their music on music platforms around the globe.

❓What is RouteNote?

RouteNote is a digital music distribution company based in the UK. They allow independent musicians, producers and labels to get music onto digital music platforms globally. These include the post popular platforms Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer along with many others.

Independent artists can’t send their music to these digital stores directly, and so have to use a digital music distributor in order to do so.

👟 Getting started

You can sign up for a RouteNote account totally free of charge, all you need is an active email address.

If you’ve got a release ready and waiting for the world to hear, RouteNote can help you get it online. Make sure you’ve got the following before uploading:

❎ Artist name(s) – this includes the names of any featuring artists, producers, lyricists etc.
❎ Release/track titles.
❎ Album artwork – this must be 3000×3000 pixels and JPEG or PNG.
❎ Your music files in MP3 or FLAC format.

And that’s all you need to distribute your release to stores!
