TUNECORE announced that its artists earned $101.8 million in 2012 alone. Since launching in 2006, 1.8 billion TUNECORE artist digital music units have been downloaded or streamed, enabling its artists to earn over $250 million in total from the sales and streams of their music.
"This is what it’s all about: giving any artist -- those distributing their first release, full-time and part-time musicians, top-named talent -- the same opportunity to sell their music anywhere in the world," TUNECORE COO SCOTT ACKERMAN said. "We at TUNECORE pride ourselves on using one of the highest quality music distribution platforms while not taking a penny from artists’ music sales." .
