  • What value do you provide as a label?
    We handle the entire distribution process on your behalf along with providing guaranteed playlist placements on our owned playlists, pitching to other playlist curators within our playlist network, promoting your release on social media, and providing education and transparency on all the royalties you are owed from your music. Additionally, our distributor provides playlist support via their internal playlist network on Spotify and Apple Music.
  • What is the royalty split?
    Our royalty splits are 60/40 in favor of the artist.
  • What kinds of royalties do you collect?
    We collect and payout royalties generated from interactive streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, etc. (Mechanical Royalties) as well as royalties generated from non-interactive streaming platforms like Pandora, Sirius XM, etc. (Performance Royalties). These royalties are paid out through DashGo. We also offer to register and collect your publishing royalties on your behalf. In this case, these royalties will be split at the same percentage as the master recording split. However, we also give you the option to handle the publishing yourself and keep 100%.
  • How will I get paid?
    You will get paid directly by our distributor DashGo via PayPal or bank transfer.
  • When will I get paid?
    You will receive your first royalty statement 2 months after the month of your first release. You will then receive monthly accounting statements and receive monthly payouts as long as the amount meets the required payment threshold of $25.
  • Will I maintain ownership of the copyright of my release?
    Yes - you as the Artist maintain 100% ownership of the Master Copyright. We as the Record Label are licensing your track(s) for a fixed period of time.
  • Can I use samples in my submissions?
    Yes, as long as the samples are 100% royalty-free or the sample has been cleared prior to submission.
  • What types of projects can I submit for release?
    Singles, Double Singles, EPs, or Full-Length Albums
  • Do you provide the album artwork?
    Completely up to you - we can put together the artwork or you can send us artwork you’d like to use.
  • Will you create a Spotify Canvas for the release?
    Yes - we will create the Spotify Canvas artwork for you (unless you explicitly state you would prefer to create it yourself).
  • How promptly will my project be distributed?
    We will submit your music for distribution AT LEAST 1 month prior to the release date, ensuring plenty of time for editorial playlist pitching.
  • Will you handle editorial playlist pitching?
    Yes - our team will pitch upcoming releases to the relevant editorial teams on your behalf unless you explicitly state you'd prefer to submit the pitch yourself.
  • Should I be registering songs released through Coastal Chill Records with my PRO (ASCAP, BMI, etc.) or publishing administrator (Songtrust, BeatStars Publishing, etc.)?
    If you choose to handle the publishing on your own then yes - you are responsible for registering the release with all these platforms if you want to collect these royalties. Alternatively, if you opt to have us collect the publishing royalties on your behalf, we will handle all these registrations for you.
