Go Global With AmpHeadMusic

Bookmark and Share
Website: http://www.AmpHeadMusic.com

Amphead Entertainment Group are driving the digital revolution in Australia for non-major labels and artists. Partnered with The Orchard from the States, They distribute the largest catalogue of digital music in the world. It currently sits at 355,000 tracks distributed through 72 countries. They act as a non-exclusive distributor for Artists and non-major labels with a 70% return + mechanical royalties back to the Artist.

Simply by getting in touch with the folks at www.AmpHeadMusic.com (their Melbourne office contact details can be found at the website) - Australian artists now have point of contact with one local company that will get their music to over 100 digital download stores around the world, including iTunes, eMusic, Napster, MSN, MTV and Bigpond.

New and unsigned artists can benefit from Amphead's network, as more online shoppers are turned on to fresh artists via recommendations and digital media, which they would never normally have in a regular retail record store. Word of mouth is becoming an even stronger medium as artists now have increased global reach via their websites and email promotions. Statistics are revealing that the hits are only generating half the digital sales, whilst niche catalogues are generating the rest.

When an artist lists their release with AmpHeadMusic, it is encrypted and sent to The Orchard for global distribution. The artist receives a username and login so they are able to check on a daily basis where and how much of their music is being downloaded. With a timeline of 4 – 6 weeks from receiving product to availability at online stores, this is the fastest way for artists to export music on a global basis.

The cost to the artist for digital distribution worldwide is $150.00 per release. This is a one-off fee for a three year term. A single, EP or album to a maximum of 98 minutes of music counts as a release. Most artists would find it difficult to distribute throughout their own City for that amount of money.

Statistics are showing that digital download is the way of the future. iTunes recently announced it was being hit for a million downloads per day. That's not a misprint, a million hits. The industry is projected to generate over 5 billion dollars a year by 2007.
