Can you license your music and skip the middleman entirely?

Is it possible to bypass music publishers and music libraries altogether?

Sure!

Bensound is a good example.

But it's tough….

I don't necessarily recommend it, especially if you're just getting started.

Why?

Mostly because it means being much more hands-on with customers, contracts, invoices and taxes.

Going direct: no publisher, no library

And that's not counting all the work that goes into setting up a website and driving traffic to it. (Assuming you want to develop your business online)

Still, I understand it's an attractive proposition and I don't want to discourage you from giving it a shot!
