Digital License and Distribution Alternatives

Postby LostSheepProductions » Mon Sep 24, 2012 8:52 pm

A number of the groups at our university got together and recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered an album with a few songs from each group. We're now attempting to get it distributed on digital music stores (iTunes, Amazon, etc). We had intended to use the wonderful A Cappella Records for this, however our University is currently unable to work with their standard agreement. This has left us looking for other alternatives for their service, and so far we've come up with nothing, leaving the album at risk of never being released (and it sounds GREAT, so we want to get this out!).

We need a company that a) manages all of the distribution details such as tracking and reporting and b) secures the licenses (all songs are covers) on behalf of the University. Does anyone know of other such companies that would do both of these things? As far as I can tell, the usual suspects like CDBaby or Tunecore don't fulfill part b of that requirement.

I should also mention that the University has ruled out getting the licenses directly from Harry Fox (or similar) due to the management and time that would have to go into tracking and maintaining that.

Its actually quite easy to secure the licenses with CDbaby, espescially for digital distribution. All you have to do is when filling out their registration forms put in the publisher and composer information on each track I believe (which you can find between wikipedia and HFAs song search) and cdbaby will make sure the digital payments get sent to the right people. I would email cdbaby directly and ask them about your concerns perhaps?
