  Advice  

  • Buying physical or digital copies of music directly supports the artists.


  • Streaming platforms which give a percentage to the artists based on the amount of time their music is played. 


Before purchasing, determine:

  • Your budget

  • Preferred format

  • Sound quality

  • Size of the catalog


  • Check the fine print for refund & exchange policies incase something happens during your delivery.
