STORES WE DELIVER MUSIC TO;

The numbers change weekly as we deal with more and more shops but in all, we have access to over 150 stores which you will find below. This does not mean that your music will appear in all shops because: some are boutique shops that only take a certain genre, other shops screen the music and take only a selection.

However, stores like iTunes, Tidal, Amazon, Spotify, 7Digital and Napster generally do not refuse any music.

Please note that your release might not appear on all of these websites – as it might be a shop with genre or label restrictions – and that the following list is preliminary and variable:
