Tapping High-Growth Markets Outside of the US
The ability to easily distribute music to new and emerging markets throughout the world is also proving to be of increasing importance to independent artists. In Q2, TuneCore saw incredible gains in markets outside of the US, with artist earnings from music distribution increasing 43 percent in Germany, 46 percent in Mexico, 52 percent in Asia, 65 percent in Scandinavia and a staggering 147 percent in Brazil.

Maximizing artists’ ability to capitalize on these high-growth regions and ensuring artists’ music is available wherever audiences are looking for it, TuneCore continues to expand its relationships with top stores and services around the world. In Q2 2014 TuneCore added a number of international distribution channels including Asia’s largest subscription-based music service, KKBOX, and the leading music distribution service in Africa, Spinlet. With these additions, TuneCore distributes to more than 80 partners operating in over 200 countries and territories, driving opportunities for musicians in some of the world’s fastest-growing markets.

Securing Lucrative Sync Licensing Opportunities
TuneCore’s Music Publishing team also continues to offer innovative earning opportunities for songwriters through TV, commercial and movie placements thanks to the company’s proprietary Sync and Master Licensing Database and in-house Creative team. In Q2, TuneCore-attained music licensing deals resulted in placements in Birdman (Movie), on Fox Sports TV, in NBC sitcom Growing Up Fisher, and in advertisements for Fairfield Inn as well as a Chevrolet promotion featuring the famed Manchester United soccer team.
