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 streaming label.
With the AWAL Portal and App, we show you everything, giving you insights into income, sales, and streaming data, all in real time.
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.
Our A&R team is constantly searching for artists within AWAL who are ready to take the next step with funding. With more money, you'll have the option to do more, faster.
Real support from real people. Lean on our support team, or explore our member-exclusive Knowledge Base for expert advice and answers to all your questions.
We keep it simple—with 30-day rolling contracts, you keep 100% of your rights, and we take 15% of the collected revenues. No other upfront, annual, or additional distribution fees.
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.
