This could down as some the biggest news of the year for songwriters. TuneCore is getting into the publishing business:
I began using TuneCore six years ago with the release of Ghosts. …The experience went very well – they actually did what they said they would in a straightforward, transparent, efficient and logical manner…
…I’ve continued using TuneCore for all my releases since Ghosts including “The Social Network” and plan to use them for the upcoming “The Girl WIth The Dragon Tattoo” and the new full-length from How To Destroy Angels.
When they reached out to tell me about their new big idea – adding transparency and straightforwardness to the murky waters of publishing administration (which to me is a world as boring and convoluted as it sounds) I was very interested. If they could pull off what they did with distribution on the publishing administration side of things, this could be a pretty big deal – it could be another important tool that further empowers the musician / songwriter directly.
