TUNECORE SUCCESS STORIES


"I remember trying to figure out how to put out my music when I was only in high school and finding TuneCore back then. As an independent artist, It's so important to understand the business of music and to be self-empowered, and this is a place to find that!"

Nikhita Gandhi

"One service I love that TuneCore provides is their Fan Reviews. Getting an unbiased perspective on your music is a crucial part of the process of creating for me and having that be part of their platform keeps everything in one place and makes it a much easier release process."

Ramya Pothuri

"Small towns and big dreams are often at odds. I come from Amravati, one such small town in Maharashtra. My aspiration is to take my art and the culture of my native town to the whole world through music. TuneCore has been helping artists achieve this with their distribution service, always taking music to a larger audience."
