Tara Greene Release Credits

Please read this carefully

Hi Tara,

Congratulations on completing your recording!

I’m so proud to have produced this work, and it is for this reason that anywhere the recording is released should include the credit
Produced by: Joel Schwartz

Unfortunately the producer credit field won’t necessarily jump out at you, but it’s super important that you it fill accurately out at the time you upload your music for release (or it will create a big headache…I’ve spelled this out in detail below).

On this page I’ll include exactly how to credit me on all platforms, plus the names of everyone else that should be credited, as well as some marketing info and a link to your final master files.

It’s been an incredible pleasure and so fun working with you, and I can’t wait to do it again.

Congratulations!

Joel

The information you enter when uploading for digital distribution will be listed on several streaming platforms and online databases, so it’s important to input all the credits accurately in the metadata. Simply put – if you don’t write everyone’s name in the right field, they will not receive credit.

Please make sure to fill out the producer credit field that digital distributors such as TuneCore and DistroKid provide to Spotify and others. (Unfortunately, there are no fields for supporting musicians or engineers.)

When the end user clicks on the album credits, it will look like this:

YouTube, Vimeo etc

If you are releasing a video that uses the studio recording, please include Produced by: Joel Schwartz in the description/notes. You may also credit everyone in the linear notes.

Bandcamp and Physical Release

Please include my producer credit as well as all the credits in the full liner notes.
