“How do I publish my songs?” With Distrokid, Canva, Unsplash, Songtrust and WordPress

Distributing and recording the publishing for a song can feel pretty ominous if you are new to the game. It can be a smooth process but you have to know the process. I go over how I use Distrokid, Songtrust, Canva, Unsplash and WordPress to distribute a song. Over the last four years of creating songs and doing my own releases, I discovered a workflow that works well for me. My workflow starts with track art and distribution to the registration and publishing data needed to get paid. In this video, I present my basic workflow to give you and idea of how easy publishing a song can be. You have to dot your i’s and cross your t’s, but there’s plenty of little details and it can all be done in under 30 minutes.

I start by showing you how I create track art with an image from Unsplash, apply a treatment to it in Canva and then publish the song with Distrokid. Afterwards, I show how I register the song with Songtrust and put in the initial release information in my WordPress site so I can keep all the meta data focused and optimized for SEO.

I expect to break down each of these service categories and the how and why I choose each of the services I use. Hope you enjoy the video. Please leave comments, like and subscribe!

About Me


I love creating music for myself and others. My primary focus is on working with great vocalists and musicians to create new and original sounding songs. When I’m not working with other artists, I am creating instrumentals, doing client work and volunteering for Librivox as a reader.
