Artist Payouts Improve Year Over Year at TuneCore

Glenn Peoples reports for Billboard that TuneCore paid $33.2 million to its artists in Q2 2014, that is up by 18.4% from the same period last year. TuneCore continues its momentum from the announcement last week that it has registered more than one million artists. The company’s growth is attributed to the music publishing division as well as the increased distribution into foreign markets with new distribution deals in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
