If you’re planning to have your music on all streaming platforms like Tidal, Apple Music, Spotify & more, you should start with the distributing company that allows you to keep your royalties; Distrokid: https://distrokid.com/vip/seven/929047
Then when you are ready to perform live, sign up to Performing Rights Organizations like ASCAP(https://www.ascap.com) and BMI(https://www.bmi.com/about) to collect performance royalties (paid to songwriters and publishers).
We also recommend you stay on top of the STREAMING ROYALTIES CALCULATOR(http://www.royaltycalc.com) to understand how much streams will get you how much money from the 3 most important streaming platforms. We don’t encourage gatekeeping, ego and entitlement when making music since we are all here for the mutual success of our creatives including YOU since YOU are seeing this and we are all on the same paths!
