– Music Distribution Service

Songcastmusic.comSongcast has been developed with up and coming independent musicians in mind. Songcast gives artists the freedom to stay independent while at the same time making money by selling their wares on the top download retailer sites like iTunes, Rhapsody, AmazonMP3, emusic and Napster.

Along with helping musicians distribute their music, Songcast also allows musicians to create their own profile where they can display photos, list show times, and provide links to buy their music. Songcast is probably not the cheapest solution available as it will run you $5.99 per month plus an initial $25 set up fee but you never have to pay them any commission for sales after that.
