ARTIST MANAGEMENT

MUSIC DISTRIBUTION

 

Independence isn’t about going it alone or being isolated.  Its about being independently allowed to think, dream, create with the intention of fulfilling those goals that were borne out of passion and vision.  Fuel Music was created because of these reasons.  To facilitate solutions.  To build and strategize in a way that broke down the walls.  In fact, we don’t believe there are any walls.

With Fuel, you get a team who will manage all sales, retail marketing AND Distribution.  All under one umbrella. We also structured it in a way so it comes at a much lower cost to you, but with much more service.

 
 

DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION

If you were to use a digital aggregator (like CD Baby or Tunecore), one of your team members would still need to manage and direct the business, set up promotions, manage pricing strategy, secure your songs on playlists, and work for strategic placement on sites like iTunes & Apple Music, Amazon, Amazon MP3, Spotify, Pandora, etc.  There are on average 4,000 new releases every week.  How can you separate yourself from the noise?  That's where we come in.  We make sure you are getting the best shot at promotions, merchandising, playlists and overall exposure.  We talk directly to retailers on your behalf in the most effective and efficient way. 

 

PHYSICAL DISTRIBUTION

While we know digital sales and streaming are becoming the dominate way in which fans listen to music, physical product is still selling, and when it comes to vinyl records, actually growing.  We can manage this entire process for you, from manufacturing and warehousing to shipping and making sure your product gets to the right stores.

Along with our physical distribution partners, we can get your music to wherever we need it across the globe, keeping it simple for you!

Domestically, we have direct contact and relations with all the independent retail stores and marketing groups, along with Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Urban Outfitters and more. Depending upon the sales level all these accounts are reachable.
