As a self-serving platform Ledo offers the full range of features that will help your release reach its full potential:
  • DISTRIBUTION - Free distribution to all leading DSPs and social media platforms with team access to every release to keep the process truly collaborative.

If you are a music maker of at least 18 years old who owns or controls the full rights to its master recording(s) and has approval from the publisher to publish the tracks through Ledo, then you can use Ledo to distribute your music, to work with multiple contributors, to share your royalties, and to collaborate with leading content creators to get your music promoted and heard.

As a music maker, you can upload your track and distribute it to all leading DSPs and social media platforms in one go. Ledo has automated a lot of features and functionalities to make it easy to use and to avoid the complicated process of music distribution. With Ledo’s Collab-house you have the option to choose between fixed fees or shared success for social collaboration so that you can invest whatever you consider appropriate into the promotion of your music.

You can, of course, take both the music maker’s as well as the content creator’s side and explore all features of the Ledo platform in one place: Distribution, Free Music Library, and Collab-house.
