Quick InfoThis page contains a list of sites where musicians can upload their music allowing listeners to stream and/or download their music. There are no basic file upload sites, just sites for musicians to create a profile, upload tracks and have a web presense.
WelcomeYou've made some great music tracks and now you want the world to hear them, thankfully there are a huge number of sites out there to upload your music to. Uploading your music to some of these sites allows people to find your music, listen and ultimately gain fans.
But which sites should you upload your music to? We've created a table below to easily see the best and most popular sites to gain some exposure from. Some musicians will want to upload their music to every single site, others will just want to pick the main sites (remember that by uploading your music to many sites takes time to maintain when adding new tracks or changing your pictures).
The List of Web Sites That Musicians Can Upload Their Tracks ToThe table below is sortable and by default they are sorted in order of how popular they are by listing their Alexa rating. This allows you to see which sites have the most potential listeners. We have also added a gold star like this next to sites we think are essential to upload to. So get uploading and if you know of a site that we have missed, please send it to us using our contact form. Happy Uploading!!!

Getting Your Music Sold On iTunes & Other Web Stores.Once you have started to create a web presence by uploading your music to the sites listed above, you might want to think about starting to sell your music independently. Thankfully there are a number of services out there which you can pay and they will get your music into those top stores such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and many more.
One of those that does this is TuneCore, which will allow you to get started selling your music (And there's no need for a record label). Simply pay a small amount to get started and for them to do the hard work for you, upload your tracks to TuneCore and start promoting your music and ultimately selling it. Plus as the owner of the music you'll then get to keep all the royalties from sales that your music gains.
