Music distribution is one of the most important aspects of making it in the music world, yet also one of the most overlooked. Many artists spend hours, weeks, even years pouring over and perfecting their music, only to realize on launch day that they’ve got nowhere to actually promote it to.
With marketing and music distribution stumping many artists before they’ve had a proper chance to even start their journey, Sharpline Distro sticks out like a lifeboat in the dark.
“Getting your music out there should be fast & easy, and getting it played should be a breeze. With Sharpline you get access to all major streaming services, and if you upgrade to Pro your music can reach even further with TikTok and Instagram.”
Founded in the UK in 2020 (though launching in 2021), Sharpline Distro is the fairly new brainchild of Victor Buyuka. Seeing the many flaws in the way the music scene is currently run, Buyuka decided to start something different, and that’s how Sharpline Distro was born.
If you haven’t already caught on by now, Sharpline Distro is a music distributor that targets independent artists, and offers them a chance to shine. They promote the artist’s songs across all major press outlets, major music platforms and streaming platforms, and get them placed into official playlists for Spotify and Apple Music.
They are a largely affordable, only charging a modest $30 for independent artists, and $50 for labels for their services. Although charging for the music distribution itself, Sharpline Distro throws its clients a remarkably sweet deal, with free music marketing thrown in the mix.
Not only will they get your songs in major playlists and reach the ears of millions of music lovers, but they will also promote it heavily across streaming platforms. They will use their press contacts and reach out to major music blogs, in order to get your songs featured, and help you carve out a name for yourself as an up-and-coming artist.
Since Sharpline is still a fairly new apparition on the music scene, it’s fair to say the industry doesn’t yet have a clear idea what to think of them. Although there seem to be some mixed opinions, the affordability of Sharpline Distro’s services, and its track record of landing sync licensing agreements does paint the new music distributor in a pretty positive light.
We’d say it’s well worth a try if your main focus right now is promoting your music, and getting it playing across streaming platforms (especially if you don’t quite know how to do that yet).
We almost forgot to mention – one of the biggest risks with signing with new marketing companies and distributors is that you never know how much of your rights to your music you’re signing away. Well, with Sharpline Distro, you don’t have to worry about that, since you retain 100% of your rights, regardless if you employ them merely to distribute your music, or sign a licensing agreement with them.
