CD Baby (Distribution service)
If you want to get your music on streaming services like Spotify and iTunes you’ll need to use a service like CD Baby to distribute your music. Distribution sites do not take ownership of your music, you retain all of the songwriting and publishing rights. CD Baby charges $9.95 for a single, and about $50 for an album. It’s very tough to earn money by streaming your music unless you have a sizable fanbase. What it does offer you is a sense of legitimacy and gives people a way to easily find your music and see if they like you.
