The day I discovered DistroKid was one of the happiest days of my 20-year music career! Finally, there was a distribution company that understood musicians. We musicians need a world-class distro service, but we need it to be super simple and cheap as chips, cos we wanna spend all our time & money making more music instead. Their customer care is second-to-none. DistroKid is a dream-come-true for any serious musician.
