Distributor

The music distributor is the one who will get our music into all relevant stores & streaming platforms for our fans to listen and buy.

Traditionally, music distributors would work with labels to get their artists music into retail music stores.

Today, distributors work the same way, but most stores are now streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon Music, TikTok, Pandora, Tidal and Deezer.

Notorious Muzik uses CMDSHFT for it music distribution.

It’s also not as necessary for an artist to be part of a label to have their music distributed, though an independent label like Notorious Muzik can be beneficial in many ways.

Notorious Muzik is a big fan of being active on social media. All day long we engage with fans, promoting, and posting about our music. 

Hiring an assistant to keep our social accounts active was a good move, especially since social media is where most of our audience hangs out.

We have social media assistants or ‘gurus’ that helps create the best content suited for each social platform and create a custom plan to grow our "following" and brand our music. 

We also use certain apps to help keep us consistent and organized when we don’t need a dedicated person for our social media plan.
