Looking Back At November 2014!

Can you believe that it’s December already? We certainly can’t! Time to put down the last of those Turkey Day leftovers and focus on the busiest music-buying season of the year, as well as getting your 2015 plans in motion.

There’s a lot that went on in November that can help you get your new music out there and connect with your fans (old and new). One of the most important items was announcing iTunes holiday delays and closings. If you want your music live in December, you need to distribute now!
