Streaming has created more opportunities for independent artists than ever before. But to get the most out of it, you need more than just distribution. You need a real partner. Meet AWAL, Kobalt’s alternative to the traditional music label.
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.
Get a one-two punch: a team dedicated to placing your songs on popular playlists, across key streaming platforms, and an app to tell you when it happens.
We recognize that a little money can go a long way. So, when the time is right, we'll be there to support you with the funding you need to help get to that next level.
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.
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.
AWAL members also have the potential to grow with Kobalt's other music services: Publishing, Recordings, and Neighbouring Rights.
We’re selective about which artists we accept, which means once you’re on the team, we’re in it together. It’s also one of the reasons we’re able to support you so well on Spotify, Apple Music and all the key platforms, because they know our roster is curated.
