Lee and Matt Parsons of Ditto Music have distributed 7 UK top 40 singles , all with unsigned artists.

London, UK (PRWEB) June 4, 2009

Ditto Music, the digital music distribution specialist for unsigned acts, has agreed a deal with the massively-popular Spotify streaming service to make available music from its fast-growing roster.

US rockers Finch, who reached #3 on US billboard with their last album, were one of the first artists using Ditto's services to reach Spotify, for the independent release of their new EP "Finch."

Now, thanks to this ground-breaking deal, talented but struggling artists can benefit from the exposure previously reserved for globally-recognised names such as U2, Bob Marley and Coldplay.

Spotify listeners will gain access to the full Ditto catalogue, which includes such names as Lil Wayne, Sean Paul, My Vitriol, Fairport Convention and Samantha Fox - and even a previously unheard Tupac album. These are just a few of the names already using Ditto Music, which remarkably has already had seven UK top 40 singles, all from unsigned artists, thanks to its digital distribution of thousands of artists to hundreds of online stores worldwide.

"Spotify has dramatically changed the way users consume music and given artists a great new platform to get their music heard. There are over 1 million Spotify users; that is a massive audience for unsigned artists to benefit from," commented Lee Parsons of Ditto Music.

Unsigned artists looking to get their music on to Spotify and start earning royalties from their creativity should visit http://www.dittomusic.com, where they can now upload their music free of charge.
