We are thrilled to be awarded with the UK’s most prestigious award for business.

We have come a long way from our humble beginnings in 2007 as an independent music distribution company working out of Cornwall. We are now the leading digital distributor in Europe working with over 750,000 artists to get their music heard around the world.

We have been recognised by royalty (the Queen!) who has awarded us with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade for 2022. We feel incredibly honoured to be awarded with the most prestigious award a business in the UK can earn.

We’re being recognised for our work in the international music business, empowering artists with:

  • A global reach for artists of all sizes from any corner of the globe
  • Market-leading free music distribution to all the major digital music services
  • Competitive pricing on a Premium tier allowing artists and labels to keep 100% of their profits
  • Providing independent artists with powerful tools to share and grow their music online

This award comes from the hard work and dedication of our amazing team who put their all in to providing the best possible service for artists. We are constantly seeking new opportunities to empower the artists and labels who work with us and we are proud to join the journey of so many independent creators as they find their international success through us.

Of course, the artists, labels, and creators who use RouteNote to get themselves heard are a huge part of the reason why we’re earning this award. We couldn’t do it without the work of our team and the commitment of our artists to creating the music that keeps the world spinning with a soundtrack.

We are honoured to receive a Queens Award. RouteNote has been on a journey to create a global music ecosystem for Artists and Labels and this is recognition that we are heading in the right direction.

I want to truly thank the entire RouteNote Team around the globe, and all the artists and labels who have shaped what RouteNote is today. We are always looking forward and excited to build further services and tools that ensure artists and labels can create a living from their art.

Steven Finch, CEO, RouteNote

Here’s to the next step of our journey together, bringing music to the world.
