Cut to the chase ‘fore I cast thee into the pit of fire

Okay, rather than pay $15-20 for each and every single, EP or album you put out (ala CdBaby, Tunecore etc) why not use DistroKid for unlimited uploads for an annual fee of $19.99? Yeah? Pretty cool right?

This means for example, if Dolbro Dan wishes to release a song every day for a year, he can. And there’s not a thing anyone can do to stop him. (It’ll never happen in a million years – but the option is always there) 

That’s why Distrokid suits Dan because (strange as it may seem) he does not intend to keep his songs online forever, indefinitely. Where’s the attraction in that…?

Songs need to be finite and time-limited so there’s a chance that some people (true, virtuous people) might actually decide to cough up.


We recommend for musicians to try out DistroKid. Especially if they plan to inundate Spotify with 365 days worth of noise-art sonic experiments. 

By the way, these Distrokid links include an affiliate reference so that you receive a whopping 7% off and Dan gets $5 for anyone who signs up.
