RouteNote is the favourite distributor of independent artists and labels around the world for their free and easy tools to grow online.
RouteNote has been designed from the ground up for artists. We simplify the process of sharing your music around the world, and help hundreds of thousands of independent artists and labels generate revenue. With just a few clicks, we can get your music onto all major online platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and many more. On top of distribution to stores and streaming services, we also help artists monetize content on social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud and TikTok.
It’s super easy to spread your music around the world. Simply sign up to RouteNote, upload your tracks, add all of the relevant metadata, select the stores, streaming services and social media platforms, then choose between Free Distribution and Premium Distribution. Free Distribution doesn’t have any upfront, recurring or hidden fees, while the artist keep 85% of the revenue generated. Premium Distribution costs a small fee, but allows artists to keep 100% of the revenue. You decide per release and can switch models at any time. Your music will then be sent to our dedicated moderation team. Usually within 72 hours, they’ll take a listen, check the metadata and all being well, send it on to our partner stores. A number of days later and your music will start popping in stores around the world.
With your music on the world’s largest platforms, every purchase and stream will earn you revenue. This revenue will be sent straight to your RouteNote account and can be deposited directly into a PayPal or bank account. In-depth statistics and earnings will show you how many streams each track has generated in each stores, and how this translates to dollars.
Beyond a higher revenue share, one of the key benefits of being an independent artist is being in full control of your music. With RouteNote the artist always keeps 100% of the rights to their music. You decide where your music goes, or if it’s not working out, you can pull your music entirely.
