NEW YORK (Hypebot) – Flat fee digital distributor TuneCore has opened a store at Amazon.com via Amazon's CreateSpace on demand pressing service. That means TuneCore now offers indie acts the ability to have low cost worldwide online distribution of both digital product and physical product without the cost of manufacturing.
One of the "Artists to Watch" featured on the first Amazon page is by Iraqi musicians that are refugees. TuneCore wrote us that "if Iraqi refugees are able to put out music on Amazon both digitally and physically, it's further evidence that TuneCore has fundamentally changed the marketplace." Amazon deserves a big share of the credit too, but the point is that by smartly combining existing services any artist can now put together a very low cost release and marketing campaign.
