ArtistLaunch.com & WaTunes.com Join Forces To Bring Digital
Distribution To Indie Artists
ArtistLaunch.com, the innovative independent digital music store,
distributor and aggregator has joined forces with WaTunes.com, the new
digital music and content management service to bring an unprecedented
number of digital distribution stores to independent artists.
WaTunes.com will provide a free digital distribution service to all
ArtistLaunch.com artists. ArtistLaunch.com artists will have their
music placed at dozens of music stores including iTunes, Napster,
Rhapsody, and eMusic through a network of music stores and mobile
services offered by WaTunes.com
"The time of the BIG dinosaur labels and distribution engines are
nearing an end. The disintermediation of music to the masses is
allowing for more and more independent artists to take control of
their careers and their own digital destiny. We are pleased to be
partnering with WaTunes.com to make the dream a reality for indie
artists!" said Moses de los Santos, CEO of ArtistLaunch.com and
"ArtistLaunch.com has always been a cornerstone of independent music
by bringing a new means of getting music out to the fans by the
musicians. We are very excited to help raise the bar by providing our
digital distribution and digital content management services to
ArtistLaunch.com artist." said Kevin Rivers, CEO of WaTunes.com.
ArtistLaunch.com began as a clearinghouse for Internet broadcasters,
but has quickly evolved into an Internet radio network, which draws
its material almost exclusively from independent artists, and has
further developed into a promoter of the artists, providing them with
Live Showcases, Podcasts, Internet and real-world radio outlets,
custom Playlists, Charts, and Artist Pages. ArtistLaunch.com exists
for the benefit of independent artists, helping not only to promote
them but also helping them to promote themselves and to cooperate with
one another in these efforts. ArtistLaunch.com is devoted to the
concepts of diversity and inclusiveness, while maintaining standards
to the extent that artists' work is not lost in a sea of mediocrity.
For those artists who have not only the talent, but also the drive and
the will to succeed, ArtistLaunch.com is there to help in every way
possible to launch musical careers.
WaTunes.com is a digital music service that provides music artists,
labels, and distributors a platform to distribute, manage, and market
their contents. WaTunes is divided into three models to bring you
On-Demand music from new and upcoming music artists, labels,
distributors, and social communities.
WaTunes Music Group (or WTMG) is the digital music distribution
component of WaTunes.com. With WTMG, music artists, labels, and
distributors can have access to media outlets, music stores, and
mobile services absolutely free. WTMG distributes, handles, and
reports sales to the music artists and labels, enabling them to freely
upload their music contents and earn money. WTMG works with over 100
music networks such as iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, and eMusic to
provide a means distribution and marketing for all music artists,
