WHAT IS HRDRV?
HRDRV is a creative services company and distribution administrator. This means we provide our artists with free cover art, visualizers, production, discounted mixing/mastering, logo design, mentorship, distribution to major streaming platforms and more. We are not a PR, booking, publishing or management company. We do of course promote our artists' music through our own channels, but our primary focus is to make their music product shine aesthetically and sonically. Through that creative help we aim to bring our artists more revenue, exposure and opportunities.
WE ARE NOT A PR COMPANY. Meaning you will still have to promote your music yourself. We do promote our artists' music on all of our channels, however our main focus is distribution administration and providing the best creative services to make your music shine in the marketplace.
WE ARE NOT A BOOKING AGENCY. Meaning we do not book you shows or tours. We do however present opportunities for our artists to perform at HRDRV sponsored events, parties, and tours.
WE ARE NOT A MANAGEMENT COMPANY. Meaning you can seek management elsewhere. You are never obligated to share your personal plans for your music with us, although we would love to hear about it and help you reach your goals!
WE ARE NOT A PUBLISHER. Meaning you must sign up with a PRO like BMI or ASCAP to collect your performance royalties.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Easy! Visit www.hrdrv.com/signup
HOW MUCH IS IT AND WHAT'S THE CATCH?
Not everything good has to have a catch! We have a free membership and a paid membership for our artists with more needs. Our paid membership is $79/mo for unlimited uploads to all platforms, free production, cover art, discounted mixing/mastering, mentorship and more. Our artists own all of their publishing and we just take 5% of streaming royalties on the songs we upload (we receive 15% of streaming royalties from our free members). Anything our artists upload and distribute themselves we have nothing to do with! Plus the deal is non-exclusive, meaning you can partner with any other companies while working with us. In other words, there's no catch.

DO I HAVE TO RELEASE ALL OF MY MUSIC WITH HRDRV?
No. Our deal with our artists is non-exclusive. You can use any of our services individually at any time (cover art, distribution admin, mixing/mastering etc) and are not required to release under our label.
DO I HAVE TO GET ARTWORK AND MIXES APPROVED?
We only need to approve artwork and mixes on the music we upload and distribute for you. If you are releasing music on your own we do not need to approve anything. You are never permitted to list HRDRV as the label on any releases we do not upload.
HOW DO I DISTRIBUTE MY MUSIC WITH HRDRV?
We've made it easy for our artists to distribute with us. If you are already signed up, you can upload your music any time at hrdrv.com/upload
I CAN'T ACCESS ARTIST SERVICES
The Artist Services tab is reserved for our artists only. If you are not an artist with us then you will not have access to that part of the site.
If you are one of our artists, we will approve your request to join the site after you've attempted your first sign-in at hrdrv.com/artistservices. Give us up to 2 business days to approve you.
HOW DO I CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP?
We'd hate to see you go! But cancelling is easy, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will cancel your membership immediately. After cancellation you will be unable to re-join HRDRV for at least 6 months. This policy is to ensure that artists do not come in and out just for discounted services. If there's anything we can do to better assist you please let us know.
