AWAL is Kobalt's alternative to the traditional music label, offering artists a full range of music services without having to give up flexibility, ownership, control or transparency.

Meet the AWAL App.

Want to get the most out of streaming? The AWAL App interprets, compares, and analyzes your streaming and revenue data to help you see more, understand more, and have the confidence to do more.

Being an independent artist doesn't mean you have to do it alone.

Flexible Deal

You keep 100% of your rights, we never lock you in or take any upfront fees. It’s just 15% of your revenue, so we only make money when you do—a true partnership.

Playlist Promotion

We specialize in playlist pitching. Since the major streaming services know our roster is curated, we’re able to get songs on the right playlists more often.

Member Support

From questions around uploading your music, switching distributors, YouTube collections and everything in between—AWAL’s member support team is available and ready to lend you a helping hand.

Data & Insights

Our AWAL Portal and App give real-time reporting into your sales trends, fan demographics, playlist notifications, financial updates, and helpful insights into what all those numbers actually mean.


We help you monetize your content, and protect your rights on video streaming platforms such as YouTube.

Powered by Kobalt

AWAL members also have the potential to grow with Kobalt's other music services: Publishing, Recordings, and Neighbouring Rights.
