I'm sharing this because I think most of you don't know it. Do you want to send your music to other stores like Spotify, iTunes, Googleplay, Deezer and twenty other stores for free? Choose Routenote. In addition to the sales of the songs you will earn money by the streams. If you want, use my Referral Link, or not: https://www.routenote.com/referral/2f767b74 I hope this was useful ;)

Recording with you is worth more than money.

JB, can you really make money that way? How many songs do you have out there?

JB2012   commented 1mo+11dy ago


I think I only have close to thirty songs If you can get the songs on good spotify playlists, you will have a lot of streams

What about those who you collaborate with...? I only ask because someone featured my song on their record...and did not give credit to me or Kim harris who actually wrote the song...how are royalities distributed? scotty

Just for the record...when i found out, I contacted the distributor (distrokid) and threatened a lawsuit unless they pulled the entire record out of the streaming platforms...and they did!

Another question? Do you register the songs with BMI Or ASCAP etc...? How do your collaborators get paid for the streams, If you do not register? Each person should have a share of the copyrights? how does all that work?

I think you could find the answers to your questions in the Routenote guides and support. http://routenote.com/blog/artist-credits-how-to-credit-the-other-people-in-your-music/

Well, that's very interesting, Jorge. The answers to Scotty's questions would be just as interesting... I recently asked here the question if it could not be made possible to transport our songs from Soundblend to Spotify and the like... ( In my opinion Soundblend is rather a cemetery for all our good songs ;( I could well imagine that this would be a very good advertisement to win new members for Kompoz. Maybe better than the idea of RAF to start a sister site with musicians who should be paid for their contributions. (Not that I think my songs are good enough to make money ... ;) But I hate the current state where we publish our songs on Soundblend where nobody signs up to buy songs ;( It would be very interesting, if we could work on this topic further ;) ???

When I submit a song on Routenote I describe how each member of the band participates, whether it is lyricist, producer, composer, primary artist, featuring artist, whatever. . . So if he is registered there, it will have a share of the profit if any, like me. . . right ?

I don't know Amuse, but there's a clear overview of (part of) the market here: https://amuse.io/free-music-distribution Anybody ever published through them?

Nice to see the conversation being had. I tried to raise it in the past and was told to quit being so serious...There is a business side to songwriting that doesn't get enough attention, when in reality it should be the first thing discussed between collaborators. If there isn't one already there should be a group to raise these questions, so the hobby writers need not be bothered with the talk of royalties etc...oh...until one of their tunes gets picked up by Taylor Swift haha! Bottom Line...if you are the author/composer (melody) on a song register it with the PRO in your country to insure you are paid for your work! And, communicate! if you plan on streaming a song others are involved with...tell them ahead of time, and not after the fact...no one really registers their songs until a payment opportunity comes along...and they need to know one exists first scotty
