WaTunes Partners With Amazon For On Demand CD Pressing

watunes.pngWaTunes is another service who will get your music on the various digital music download stores (and on iTunes in a 3-4 day turnaround for very cheap) has expanded it’s service to now include the ability to use Amazon’s On Demand CD service CreateSpace. We previously profiled CreateSpace and found their product to be a great idea for artists who don’t not know if they will sell 1,000 copies and would rather press their release on demand. The WaTunes press release is in the jump. If you would like to read more about Amazon’s On Demand Service or WaTunes click their respective links.

WaTunes, the revolutionary social media service that enables artists
and record labels to sell their music entirely free on iTunes, eMusic,
and ShockHound has announced a strategic partnership with Amazon to
offer physical CD distribution On-Demand. Through this partnership,
WaTunes VIP customers will be able to gain access to the Amazon
On-Demand and the AmazonMP3 music store completely free while free
customers will be able to opt-in to the On-Demand and AmazonMP3 service
for $10 per album. WaTunes will pass all royalties from Amazon to the
artist. Jon A. Zerba, President of WaTunes says:

“Here at WaTunes, we’re all about listening to our customers. One of
the great challenges is providing the proper platforms for artists to
showcase their music with their fans. Now, with WaTunes offering
On-Demand, artists will be able to provide a means of CD distribution
through Amazon at the lowest cost with our revolutionary model. “

WaTunes currently distributes titles from notable artists including
Verity, Chubb Rock, and Makell Bird. Kevin Rivers, CEO of WaTunes says:

“With the new On-Demand service, we’re now able to provide a whole new
medium where our customers can gain traction, a new format of
distribution, and offer tangible products to their fans while
increasing their sales portfolio. We are very excited to be able to
work with Amazon and provide On-Demand distribution to our customers.”

WaTunes will work hand-in-hand with Amazon’s CreateSpace to encode the
music of independent artists and record labels worldwide and will work
directly with Amazon to provide any marketing & promotional
opportunities using the new On-Demand service.
