What is Stem?

Stem is a platform that tracks revenue streams & splits earnings for artists & their teams, giving a clear financial picture at all times.

What service does Stem integrate with?

Stem currently works with Amazon, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, Google Play, Pandora, Saavn, SoundCloud, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube Content ID & YouTube Art Tracks.

 

How does Stem work?

Stem works directly with platforms such as Apple, Spotify, YouTube and Amazon to manage content for our users. Simply create an account, upload original music or video for distribution, select your platforms and tell us who's due a share of the revenue. We then collect your earnings, show it to you & your shareholders in a unified dashboard, and pay everyone directly each month so you don't have to.

What is a shareholder?

A shareholder is a collaborator who is entitled to a percentage of the revenue associated with a specific creative work.

Examples of shareholders include producers, songwriters, videographers, performers, editors, etc.
