Why We're Different
TuneCore Music Distribution
Helps artists, labels and managers sell their music through Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TikTok and more than 150 download and streaming stores worldwide, while retaining 100 percent of their sales revenue and rights for a low annual flat fee.
TuneCore Music Publishing Administration
Assists songwriters by administering their compositions through licensing, registration, worldwide royalty collections, and placement opportunities in film, TV, commercials, video games and more.
The TuneCore Artist Services
Offers a suite of tools and services that enable artists to promote their craft, connect with fans, and get their music heard.
“The thousands of artists who use our solutions and whom we support each carry a part of the diversity that makes up the culture of their country. They are women and men of different origins and sensibilities. Our teams must reflect this diversity in their composition. We always say that we have two hearts: our people and our artists and they must beat in tune with each other.”
Denis Ladegaillerie, CEO
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
TuneCore advocates diversity, equity, and inclusion across all of our platforms and throughout our company. We are a company who cares deeply about our people and our artist community. TuneCore’s driving forces are Innovation and Collaboration. We take both very seriously. Innovation keeps us working hard for our artists, pushing our “Artists First” agenda. Collaboration drives the way in which we work, as well as the way in which we approach our company’s social responsibility.
We join with our parent company, Believe in supporting the company’s Ambassadors program, made up of TuneCore team members stepping outside their roles to bring the company together on issues they care about, both local and global. These TuneCore ambassadors work towards the goals of communicating best practices, proposing and leading concrete initiatives and actions.
The company also supports Believe’s initiatives:
- Believe for People, focused on diversity and equality for all people and working towards a more inclusive workplace
- Believe for Parity, whose goals are true equality between women and men in the workplace and to fight against discrimination
- Believe for Planet, which operates as an internal think tank on environmental issues. Their mission is to limit the carbon footprint and any environmentally negative impact of the company and its employees
BE THE CHANGE
With equality in mind, beginning in 2021 TuneCore and Believe partnered with leading entertainment and media analysis research firm MIDiA Research to launch BE THE CHANGE: Women in Music, a groundbreaking study on the underrepresentation of female creators in the music industry.
For the third annual study, Believe and TuneCore engaged entertainment data and insights company Luminate to lead the research for the study and expand its scope. With over 1600 respondents from 109 countries, this year’s study includes an increased focus on global reach and adopts an intersectional approach that accounts for respondents’ ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability status, parental status, location, and age among other factors.
Our intent for this study is to inspire meaningful change in the industry.
