Hey there, Believe, like The Orchard and INgrooves are distribution companies that only work with labels. If you have a label they could be a good option. You can even start an indie label (just by name) and submit to distribute through them. They are much more hands on than the open to all companies like CD Baby, Tunecore and DistroKid. They may be able to offer you physical distribution and extra promotion.

Hey Ari,

I have just spent about 4 hours reading through many of your articles therefore resulting in me singing up to your email list.

I need some advice if you could possibly help me out?
I manage a band (who right all their own music) but I also own the publishing rights (inc all copyrights) to recordings of theirs that I finance.
I am just a small time company atm. Should I myself sign up to a publisher admin to help me deal with all the work as a one man publisher or can I do it myself with just signing up to say BMI (worldwide deal) an MCPS (for UK Mechanicals) etc.

I'm sorry to give you further work after your fantastically helpful and insightful articles!

Blessings and thanks,
James A F Lacey
