Promotion and Distribution

Rock-a-Nore Records is a record label founded in 2019

We find talented artists and musicians, and set about putting them on the map, getting their music heard, helping them build their fanbase so that they can enjoy the fruits of being heard globally.


We help artists through the process of making great studio recordings. We prepare music for worldwide release, ensuring that each audio file is properly mastered, logged and labelled, with copyrights correctly attributed.

With years of experience and up-to-date information, we know how different markets work, and advise on how to promote music in the great number of different territories which buy music.

Collecting and distributing royalties from streams, downloads, radio and television is part of the Rock-a-Nore Records deal.

Any modern label must be focussed on digital distribution. Rock-a-Nore Records releases music on all major portals, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, Deezer, Tidal, Pandora, Google Play / YouTube, Napster, iHeartRadio, ClaroMusica, Saavn, Anghami, KKBox, MediaNet, Instagram / Facebook, Shazam, and more.

But we have a big advantage over many small labels – we release records in China, a huge and fast-growing market for music, and which, contrary to out-dated expectations, does pay royalties. China actually pays more promptly than established UK and US collection agencies.

Our sibling company, Silverhill Music, deals with music publishing, collecting royalties on behalf of writers, and administrating synchronisation rights, i.e. the use of music in broadcast media (radio and television), advertising, film soundtracks, games, etc.
