I would like to put together a playlist with sample songs from any forum artists on Spotify. Can you post your artist link and suggest a track for inclusion? Besides personal use, I'm hoping I can also use it to help promote the forum ...

For starters, I am listed as a solo artist as Kevin ISM :

https://open.spotify.com/artist/0j9p7CyqOBHWKiIFFIqfO9

And also with my band, History of Trust:

Thanks,

Kevin

Hopefully I'll get One By One up there when it's completed.

Hi Kevin

I've bookmarked your links, and just listening to some of your tracks now. Liking what I hear so far!

My album is here https://open.spotify.com/album/2CA5pcQ1j0sfsM9djWZt9Q - suggested playlist track is 'under the bed'

Since Paul (Wicked Deeds) didn't suggest a song for the playlist, I would like to humbly suggest 'sing' from his excellent album.

Can I also suggest that we all follow one another on spotify as this will increase our individual exposure.

[edit] since Todd didn't suggest a playlist track either, might I suggest 'c'mon angel'

Mikey, I'll bookmark your link too. I've followed you all too :)
The first track from my upcoming album has landed -- Click to listen -- Thanks!

I'd be interested to know how much was paid to be on this platform?

Hi Alan

There's a thread in the bar about this from a few days ago called 'amuse'

Wicked Deeds posted this link http://aristake.com/post/cd-baby-tunecore-ditto-mondotunes-zimbalam-or which offers a great comparison of all the companies who provide this service. Prices range from free to £40+ per year depending on additional services etc.

Hope that helps

Yes, I'm using the Amuse route and have releases scheduled for Jan 5th and 12th. Will report back. Incidentally anybody know exactly what revenue you get from a stream ? I think it's something like 0.0001p. Cheers guys and HNY to all  :)

Yo Kev, it would be cool to be on your list.  My band's page is here...

https://open.spotify.com/artist/3CP1BK2QZ4mjsjBKZ8fmm9

And our best Spotify track is probably "Black Disc Signal" here:

https://open.spotify.com/track/60iPFvq4Gy2d5gSQFLSoYW

Thanks for taking this initiative.  I will now take Tone's suggestion and follow everyone else.

Pauly
It's all too beautiful.

... and while we're at it, why don't we follow each other on Deezer too?  I managed to find & "heart" PopTodd, Tone, WickedDeeds, & Kevysc so far.  I'm on there as Elastic Justice.  Liking this streaming solidarity!
It's all too beautiful.

Hi guys, I think this is a great idea, I've followed all of the links posted here and followed everyone, and will start choosing a few tracks from each to make up playlists, and I will tell Andy so he can do the same.

Alan,
We used Distrokid to publish the tracks, they charge from about £15 for the year, and they upload them to all of the popular streaming sites and collect the royalties for you

Cheers, Mikey

Many thanks for the responses. I have created (the first version) of the playlist "UK Songwriting Forum by Kevin ISM" that you can find here

https://open.spotify.com/user/kegraham61/playlist/1WQq8V33cx9hxCxzrYUV6D

Please download and play often!

Great idea to follow one another, I have done so.

As more people add to this thread I will update the playlist, plus I may more tracks from the existing artists in the coming weeks.

Kevin
