The Orchard is excited to share that we have partnered with Play MPE, one of the leading players in promotional digital music delivery. Through this relationship, clients of The Orchard will enjoy preferential pricing to service their music through Play MPE. With over 80,000 industry contacts in radio and press, Play MPE has been working closely with industry influencers since it was founded back in 2003. We all know relationships are everything in the biz, so we’re confident our clients will see new doors open up to them through the service.
What can the service do for you? First and foremost, it delivers your music to targeted industry decision makers with secure and individualized watermarks in place to avoid piracy. Beyond that, Play MPE targets the exact influencers you need to hit; from specific genre to territory, they have people everywhere. Better yet, these contacts trust Play MPE, which increases the likelihood your release will get noticed. To seal the deal, the music and metadata are delivered in a way that seamlessly integrates with radio broadcast software, so there are no barriers for your music to air.
Releases can include single or multiple tracks as well as images, videos and descriptions, all customizable with various templates. Pricing for a release starts at $250 and varies based on the number of tracks you include and the lists you select. Some genres cost less, like Metal and Dance, while others are mid-range, such as Active Rock and Triple A. When you select more then $750 worth, you can get 50% off the remaining lists. Play MPE will give you a quote based on your exact need and factor in a 10% discount if you’re a client of The Orchard.
