[...] and Bandcamp is great too - free to use and low commission.
So I guess it is a different fee structure? DistroKid maybe a one-off, and Bandcamp is "free", but takes a percentage? Just asking, because I really have not researched that. Tom

I tried to release an album through TuneCore, but some weird message about my music fit the criteria for potential streaming abuse.

I just said no. I’ll probably be going through DistroKid.

Yeah exactly... just looked it up, it's a bit higher than I thought... 15% on digital. I've found it good for the exposure though... got connected with a great online magazine on there and they ended up reviewing my first album.

So - the consensus, for us simple folk, is Bandcamp & Distrokid... and You Tube?

Free access to streaming services was mentioned but I dont believe any were mentioned.

Amuse.io is a way to get your music on streaming services for free and they dont take any commision.
