Your location makes little to no difference as all our operations are digital. We are able to efficiently communicate with people from all over the globe. Copyright laws vary from country to country so, if you want to find out more about how your location could impact placements, feel free to get in touch.

Is your agreement exclusive or non-exclusive?

We can be flexible on this. If you wish for your music to be submitted non-exclusively, then we can do this with you. However, we also take on music exclusively which has a wide range of benefits to you.

What is the benefit of signing up exclusively?

If your music is signed exclusively to Amurco, it increases the chance of us being able to place your music in productions. Many agencies will only look at music exclusively and, as such, if your content is non-exclusive then these opportunities are not available with your music.

Playlist Music FAQ’s

What is Playlisting?

Amurco works closely with a variety of brands and music service providers like Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music. We can ensure your music is included in online playlists with millions of monthly listeners, growing your online audience and generating substantial streaming royalties.

Is your agreement exclusive?

In order for us to be able to put your music throughout our many distribution channels you will need to grant Amurco exclusive distribution rights over your music. But, don’t worry, you won’t be relinquishing the ownership of your music.

How are the royalties divided?

Our standard playlist agreement is split 20/80 in favour of you, leaving you with a whopping 80% of all the royalties from your newly-generated streams.

I already have my music on Spotify etc. with another distributor… Can I still sign up for this opportunity with Amurco?

No, unfortunately your current music will already be exclusive with your current distributor. In order for us to playlist your music we can only take music that is currently not distributed by anyone else, or if it is we can transfer it to us for you.
