EmuBands is a digital music distribution service founded in 2005. EmuBands provides a simple but powerful digital music distribution service for artists, and record labels, to sell music online through iTunes, Spotify, Amazon.com, Google Play and many more of the world's digital music services.

In a non-exclusive deal, artists and labels earn 100% of the royalties generated from sales, and maintain full ownership and control of their rights, and with a simple one-off pricing model, there are no annual fees.

History and overview[edit]

Based in Glasgow, EmuBands offer unsigned artists and independent record labels access to selling their music online.

As well as digital music distribution, EmuBands play an active role in educating the public on areas within the music industry. Managing Director, Ally Gray, takes regular seats on panels for various seminars and conferences.

In late 2012, EmuBands featured at Aberdeen Music Open Day,[2] Born To Be Wide - ‘Release Yourself’,[3] and Norwich Sound & Vision.[4]
