Launches Royalty Program for Unsigned Artists launched today a "groundbreaking" Artist Royalty Program, allowing unsigned musicians to collect royalties when their music is loaded into's library and then streamed. Since the announcing the new Royalty Program in January, more than 450,000 tracks by unsigned or independent artists have been uploaded to the site. The artists will receive royalties if their tracks are either randomly streamed or played free-on-demand. "The young musician making music in a bedroom studio has the same chance as the latest major label signing to use to build an audience and get rewarded. The Artist Royalty Program is another revolutionary step towards helping musicians take control of their music — and, more importantly, make a living from it," said co-founder Martin Stiksel.
