Newcomer to the social music scene RouteNote, is designed for independent musicians who are seeking to distribute their music. The service is partnered with a handful of today’s most successful online music stores/outlets including Napster, Snocap, and Samsung Mobile. Artists get instant access to worldwide distribution, plus they retain full ownership of their songs. There are no sign up fees, and artists receive a full 90% of their sales. RouteNote’s service is non-exclusive and they also provide other venues for artists to distribute their music including, film, TV and radio. Free self promotional tools include widgets, and banners among other things. More partnerships with other music outlets are in the works.
“RouteNote is an online music distribution service providing artists instant access to a large proportion of the online market. Designed and built to take advantage of the shift towards independent and self-publication through online and mobile music outlets, and the consumer switch to online purchasing as outlined by the success of iTunes, Myspace and Pump Audio, RouteNote is partnered with some of the biggest retailers on the web to give artists massive and immediate availability for their tracks.”
RouteNote offers musicians a much easier way to distribute their music to a worldwide audience. Wading through copyright and licensing laws is difficult and possibly prohibitive. For independent artists RouteNote’s service takes care of all their needs, plus they get to keep most of their profits.
