Music Producers & Artist

  1. Sign up for Distrokid now by clicking my V.I.P referral link and Get a 7% discount! DistroKid is a service for musicians that puts your music into online stores & streaming services. The fact that it was only $19.99 A YEAR already had me sold.

Fill in all required fields. This should include your email and the password you choose to use. Keep in mind that the password field needs to be filled in twice with the same credentials to ensure security for the user.

2. Select what service best fits your needs and click continue. You will be prompted to enter your credit card information. One your payment is complete, check your email and login. There might be additional tasks to complete the setup.

3. Navigate to the upload button. This is where all of the magic happens. Select which stores you or platforms you would like your music delivered to, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Google Play & YouTube Music etc.

4. Choose the number of songs or instrumentals you would like to. Also, you may choose if tthis project is a single.

5. Another option This is where you confirm if your project has been released in the past as other artist and producers can document that. If you have never been on a streaming platform, your answer is easily no.

6. Enter your artist or band name next to Artist/band name. It will search the name in Spotify and in Itunes to see if you are already hold artist accounts there and if so, will provide the ability to claim those accounts.

You will also see Release date, iTunes Preorder and Record label customization options that are only available to upgraded members.

7. Now it’s time to upload your artwork and this can be tricky. Your artwork MUST fit in a perfect square format and must also be in .jpg format. Or atleast thats what we had to do lol. I have also seen some in a circle form. Quality matters and distro also has some guidlines to follow.

8. Next choose the Language, Primary genre and if you wish, the optional Secondary genre.

9. Add in your track Title. If you were releasing and album, this would be considered Track 1. Distro Is also sensitive about the information you put here so be sure to follow the guidelines.

10. Inform Distrokid whether this was an original tune (yours) or a cover song (someone elses).

11. Enter all of the song writers involved with this particular project and specify each persons involvement. Choose Music, Lyrics, Or Music and Lyrics.

12. Specify whether the project is a clean or dirty version. You can even choose to add an edited/ clean version of a explicit song. Upgraded members can specify price on itunes here as well.

13. Upload song file. Song file formats must be MP3, WAV, FLAC, CDDA or WMA

14. Not much more to go. One of the last steps is to tell Distrokid if this is an instrumental or contains lyrics. At the very least, select Instagram & Facebook as it is free!. Proceed to the final step.

15. You MUST select all boxes to process this project with Distrokid. If you read the Distrubution Agreement, you will understand the terms you are agreeing to.

Congrats! You are done! You will get 100% of your royaltys. Distrokid processing could take up to 2-3 weeks to hit all platforms. Be patient! They ill keep you up to date with thier progress via email.
