Selling your music online: Start Here

If you're in a new band, you should be looking for the most affordable way to make your music available to the widest audience possible. 

For better or worse, this task is incredibly easy.

There are an overwhelming amount of platforms for bands to upload and market their music. Luckily, you only need to start with two: BANDCAMP and CD BABY.


  • It's free
  • Easy to use
  • Can serve as your first website
  • Allows people to discover, stream, and/or purchase your music digitally
  • Provides an e-commerce platform to sell physical products directly to your fans
  • It's FREE! 


  • One up-front fee of roughly $80 to make your album available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and literally everywhere else that sells music digitally.
  • Easy to use
  • No reoccurring fees

Keep it simple! Don't get bogged down creating and maintaining dozens of accounts. If you upload your first EP or album to these two sites, your music will be available to anyone in the world with an internet connection.
