    Im on cd baby and come from Germany/Europe so there are some problems with the contact time and sometimes phone costs. Also they Chance some things when they look on the album when it comes to non English songnames. Sometimes they change it to not existing words or send you a mail with "something is wrong with your Songnames" and don't say or mark what songnames are mean. I must call them. Same with the cover. Also the Claimings are sometimes weird. Cause the videos of my songs on my Canal are claimed and they knew that this is my chanal. That annoys

    I'm a very young and inexperienced musician, and I just want to get my music on streaming platforms and iTunes. My budget would be VERY limited and I would prefer direct deposit. What is your recommendation?

    Thank you for your guidance with this Curtis, your videos are fantastic! I am both a live cover music entertainer and an original artist, am I able to sell my album which features both covers and originals, across these platforms? Gemma x

    thank you for the video buddy. Helpful

  14. Paul Benninger says:

    Thanks for the great comparison. I think it boils down to if you have an established fan base and you know you can sell enough to make the $50/year/album then use tunecore or Distrokid otherwise if you are starting out and just testing the waters use cdbaby or Onerpm.  I'm sure you can cancel one and move to another if your situation changes.

    thanks. I appreciated this. I went with CD Baby but your research reassured me that I made the right decision for my particular situation.

  16. Akoli Cruz says:

    Man i dont normally comment on videos but how the hell can you give one rpm a 100% when they take 100% a the artists royalties ?. ……of course they're gonna give your free production time when they own 100% of your royalties smh. Maybe you didnt mean to say that but you did
