3 ways independent artists use Haulix

Getting the attention of the media as an independent artist in 2017 can be incredibly difficult. Getting the attention of a management company, record label, or booking agent may be even harder. We at Haulix have not yet discovered a secret path to success in this business, but we have developed a popular platform for promotion that saves both time and money without risking the security of unreleased music.

Many people believe Haulix is a platform intended for publicists and record labels, but over the last eight years we have also helped hundreds of independent artists and groups from all over the world further their careers through use of our platform. Here are just three example of how we make it possible for up and coming talent to raise their industry profile:

Press Coverage

There are dozens of promotional distribution platforms in existence, but none have received more recommendations from members of the media than Haulix. Journalists and radio personalities alike use our service every day to stream, download, and discover the next big record. Our promo tools make it easy for anyone to upload music and share it with the industry at large using a fully customizable template in a matter of minutes. Just take a look at these recent promos:


Custom EPK

Not long ago, artists hoping to secure a record deal, manager, or booking agent would have to physically mail their contacts a package containing information about their music. These packages often included a bio, music, photos, tour information, and all sorts of artist-related branding. Artists would pour effort into these packages, which in turn left them with less time to focus on their craft.

With Haulix, independent artists can recreate the EPK experience using our fully customizable promos and email invitations. Our platform has zero third party advertising, meaning your music and branding is all anyone will see. Use this to your advantage and create messaging that not only tells your story, but showcases where you plan to go in the future as well.

Fight piracy

Music pirates are worse than ever in 2017. In fact, studies have shown that music piracy has more than doubled in the last ten years, and it is expected to double once more by 2020. With Haulix, independent artists can watermark their new and unreleased music. This video explains how the process works:
