Whether you’re releasing your ﬁrst single or kicking off a sold-out tour, CD Baby's Stages is with you every step of the way with all the distribution, monetization, and self-promotion services you need to build your brand, expand your audience, and maximize your royalty payments.
Stages offers you three different levels of service as determined by your traction on Digital Service Providers (DSPs), social channels, and the judgment of our internal A&R team.
Stages’ service levels are:
- CD Baby Essentials for emerging artists
- CD Baby Plus for rising artists
- CD Baby Label Services for established artists
The application for CD Baby Plus and CD Baby Label Services will collect info about streaming activity, social following, and career highlights so we can determine what stage your career is at and match the service best suited to your particular needs.

What happens after you fill out the application?
If you qualify for CD Baby Plus or Label Services, you will receive an email from our team within 2-3 business days.
They won't reply to every artist that fills out the form, but they will keep tracking your new releases, and may contact you in the future. Please only apply once.
Currently, Stages is available to US-based artists. We look forward to expanding internationally in the future.
