You can apply for digital distribution services via this page
We provide services for both artists and labels.
Our core distribution is percentage-based but we do require a fee for some services.
If a release is submitted to DSPs through Symphonic, that release cannot be re-distributed via another distributor until the end of the contractual term. Therefore, the exclusivity only applies to specific distributed content and not to the artist or label themselves.
In order to best ensure that play counts are retained during a content transfer, always use your release’s original UPC, catalog number, ISRC codes, metadata (song titles, artist names), audio, and release date. We recommend that you upload the content to us first, wait for it to be processed and approved, and then issue a takedown with your previous distributor.
Remember, we are always here to assist you during this process.
Cover songs are accepted as long as the proper license is obtained. We recommend using EasySongLicensing.com to license cover songs, but clients are welcome to use any service they’d like.
We distribute to hundreds of different outlets and digital service providers. To check out our list of current partners, click here. We are always adding new distribution partners to our network.
We distribute content to Chinese outlets such as Tencent, Alibaba and NetEase. Additionally, we service other DSPs in Asia like JioSaavn, KK Box and Express In Music. As new platforms and services come to market, we’ll continue to integrate them to our offerings as we see fit.
Symphonic provides many different services, including Video Distribution, YouTube and Soundcloud Monetization, Publishing Administration and Sync Licensing.

At Symphonic, we have our own Sync licensing brand by the name of Bodega Sync. This service is selective and all content is evaluated by the sync team before it is accepted.
We regularly promote our artists through our playlists and site content, but most of the marketing and design services are a la carte and/or fee-based.
We don’t provide verification services, but you can check out this blog post for best practices on getting verified.
