Who doesn’t like cheap and easy?
The people I work with are phenomenal. In particular, Randall Gordon of Mind Kitchen Media. This guy knows more about almost everything than most people. He reads more about almost everything than most people. Best of all, Randall shares what he knows. Thus, I keep him around.
This morning he informed me about a new digital music distribution service called, DistroKid. For twenty bucks a year, DistroKid will distribute an unlimited amout of songs to iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon. Your music will be available for purcahse on iTunes within a couple hours. The best part about this: you keep all of the royalties. That’s right, you get all of your money. You no longer need to pay a middle man (iTunes takes their cut, of course.)
Try it. The first upload is free, and you don’t even need to give your credit card info.
Go forth, and upload your music for the masses to enjoy. Power to the independent musician!
