About TuneCore

TuneCore—owned by Believe, one of the world’s leading digital music companies—is the leading development partner for self-releasing artists to build their audiences and careers, offering an open-platform, accessible technology solution for music creators to widely distribute and earn money from their music.

Today, TuneCore offers more than just digital distribution, including best-in-class services like publishing administration, DIY artist education programs, and a range of additional promotional services.
