BTB Podcast! Episode 154: Spotify and CD Baby compete for music distribution dominance…and you win!October 28, 2018 / No Comments / Tags: cd baby, music distribution, Spotify
This week, Ryan breaks down the latest music distribution news regarding Spotify getting into the direct distribution business. Spotify has recently announced that it will allow direct upload onto its services (and other streaming services) through its platform. They appear to be trying to make music distribution companies, like CD Baby, obsolete. But CD Baby is responding with some new services of its own. Spotify and CD Baby are competing aggressively, and they are making quick and powerful moves. We break it all down this week and discuss what it all means for indie artists.
