For Artists

Do you have recorded music you’d like to get to a wider audience? CDs, vinyls, digital tracks, and associated merchandise…

It’s easy to publish music yourself on the internet, but what next? We can help you with the finer details: licensing covers, unique track codes, barcodes, collections agencies and artist royalties through organisations like PRS for Music. This is stuff a lot of independent artists don’t have time for, or don’t understand, but it’s important!

Sell your music on TTR directly, with a customisable user experience including sample players, discount codes and special offers. Benefit from being part of a diverse catalogue alongside other gifted musicians, encouraging organic discovery through our lovely online store. We can also distribute your music to big platforms including iTunes, Amazon Digital, Google Play and Spotify.

CORE SERVICES

There are two sides to TTR: the online store and the artist support. We offer online sales and distribution to all major platforms, plus the more involved and complicated services that a lot of indie artists miss:

  • Fulfil digital and physical sales on TTR
  • Distribute to major platforms including iTunes, Amazon Digital, Google Play & Spotify
  • Customise your digital goods on TTR: sell video, add PDFs, bonus tracks, lyric sheets etc. to make it unique
  • UPC barcode generation
  • ISRC track codes (if needed)
  • Register your music with PRS/PPL collections agencies
  • Correctly license cover songs and distribute online without copyright worries
  • Promotional assistance as part of TTR store
