“People have great talent and great taste, now, they need great options” - Daniel Warren, Managing Director
Identity Music was created in 2019 with one goal: To bring a client-focused music distribution service to the table. The music industry is saturated with large distributors that place customer service on the back-burner. Here at Identity our clients are our top priority.
That’s why Identity was founded on an innovative model that excludes charging excessive and unnecessary fees for distribution and promotion. We focus on bringing a personalised music distribution service that is built around our client needs, not our own.
We believe that the best way to sell music online is through a team, and a company, that works alongside you.
We are extremely passionate about helping people and proud of our efficient client support system and team. We have a dedicated front of house support team who are available to support artists and labels with any needs.

With Alex's expertise in Digital Rights Management and the music industry, he is perfectly poised to lead our A&R team and help independent artists turn their passion into profit. Given that he’s a bit of a chatter-box, it’s no surprise that he spends the majority of his day getting to know clients and chatting their ear off. Alex is a strong advocate of Identity Music’s customer focus and takes time to get to know our clients individually so that he can provide the best support. He says his favourite part of working for Identity Music is getting to know the stories behind an artist and their music.
Jess joined the A&R team in September 2020 after working in music promotion in London.

As a musician himself, Alex knows exactly what our clients are looking for and what they need to start growing, making him an expert on consulting our clients and establishing the right music distribution. Alex joined the A&R team in June 2020, and is part of the day to day artists team who work closely with all our distribution clients. What he loves about working at Identity Music is that we have a friendly and close-knit team, making helping clients so much easier. When he’s not in the office, Alex will most likely be listening to music or making music, or stuck in a YouTube spiral.

The most important member of the Identity Music team by far is Simba! He tells us that he is a hard-working employee, but he's often found napping on the job. Simba's responsibilities include team motivation and tripping Kirsten over. He has also taken it upon himself to start confiscating staff lunches! When he's not at work, Simba can be found still tripping Kirsten over, plotting who's lunch to take next and chasing cats.You will often see Simba featured on Identity Music's social media channels offering independent musicians some barking good advice.
