TuneCore continues to grow opportunities and revenues for artists and songwriters. Today, the company announced strong Q3 2014 artist earnings results. Additionally, TuneCore highlighted several new, key initiatives launched to further support the growing generation of musician-entrepreneurs who choose to remain independent and take charge of their own careers. In Q3 2014, TuneCore artists’ earnings exceeded $32 million, a 13.2 percent increase over Q3 2013. This brings the total amount paid to distribution clients since the company’s inception in 2006 to $471.5 million based on 10.6 billion combined streams and downloads. The number of streams continued to increase at a steady pace during Q3, growing 154 percent vs. Q3 2013. The company also disclosed that hip-hop is TuneCore distribution’s top genre by both quantity of releases distributed and revenue paid, with 1.6 billion downloads and streams and $59 million in artist earnings since 2006.
