Vuga Music is 100% independent and at Vuga Music Inc, our core beliefs are built on transparency and efficiency.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
'Nuff said, right? We want to be inspired. All genres are accepted during the application and distribution process, but we want it to be awesome, unique, cool, and innovative.
A Strong and Consistent Brand
You've got a strong and original visual brand across all of your social channels, websites, and cover art. We look at your main website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and SoundCloud.
Fan Engagement & Audience Strategy
You or your artists are active across social media and DSPs and have an engaged, active, and growing audience. We look for # of followers, growth statistics, and the general health of an artist's community.
Traction on Digital Service Providers
You have strong and growing monthly listeners on Spotify and Apple Music. You're killing it on SoundCloud or YouTube.
If your music is being distributed, performed worldwide, and you don't have a publishing deal, your royalties are sitting in collection societies around the world waiting to be claimed by you. The problem is that in order to collect these royalties, you need direct relationships with each society in each territory. Doing this takes time, paperwork, and a lot of upfront fees. Worst of all, if you don't register in time to collect your royalties, the collection societies will retain the royalties and you will miss out on additional revenue. Did you know for every $5 you earn in streaming revenue there's over $2 in additional publishing money waiting to be collected? Give yourself the opportunity to earn your whole slice of the pie.
