Artist Spotlight

I've got gold records and produced for lots of major label artists and major label releases and I make more money through TuneCore's platform than I do from the majors. Its system allows you the freedom of releasing music on your own schedule and without the red tape associated with dealing with a label. And the fans can tell and they support that.

The coolest thing about Broad Shoulders is that we did it with TuneCore….we wanted to put it out on Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, but we didn’t want to sign to a label. I didn’t want to give up my rights to my masters, so we found out about TuneCore and they helped us with distribution. Tunecore is there for any independent artist.

TuneCore have been a massive support taking my project on, so that I could get on with making my music and getting out there… I’m loving the independence and freedom of doing it 100% my way.
