Community Music are proud to announce that we have formalised an official partnership with Cygnus Music to make them our preferred distribution partner.
They have been really supportive of our work over the last few years and have been extremely patient with us while we show our students how to release their music officially. Cygnus Music have been there every step of the way to streamline and help guide us along this path, showcasing the correct and most professional way to approach releasing music which is why we are collaborating as official partners.
If you are thinking of setting up a digital label or you are an artist who wants to self release, check out the Cygnus Music website and get in contact with them to see if they can help. It’s the level of care and customer service they provided us which made us never leave!
Another great thing with Cygnus Music is that there are no setup fees, membership fees or up-front charges. They don't make any money until you do and that suits us perfectly because we are working with musicians, music producers, artists and bands who are not massively experienced in releasing music yet.
The Cygnus Music company was created from the ground up with one sole purpose - To provide a range of services for labels and artists that are not only transparent, but effective. Cygnus Music is a music distribution company specialising in setting up, moving and managing digital labels, and distributing them to the biggest music stores online. We have a huge network of stores and streaming sites Worldwide including Beatport, Deezer, Amazon, iTunes, Juno, Spotify, VK, Yandex and many more.
In this digital age we all benefit from the convenience of modern technology, but there is one aspect of a company that you wouldn’t want automated or online - Customer Service. We believe that even though we work with electronic music in a digital format, our clients should receive a professional and personal service. Music is individual and varied, so why settle for a ‘one size fits all’ approach, when we can tailor digital distribution, marketing & mastering services to suit your requirements, and make selling your music online easy.

We use Cygnus Music as part of an assignment in our ‘Anatomy Of The Music Industry’ module (taught by multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Dani Senior) as part of our Creative Music Production & Business Foundation Degree (in partnership with University of Westminster). Students are put into groups and have to plan out a campaign to release a track.
