About


  • Introduction

Too Lost is a one stop web-platform for musicians; offering marketing tools, digital distribution, promotional opportunities and additional revenue streams for artists.

We are looking for final funding to fully launch the platform and introduce our user-to-user collaboration feature.

Our mission is all about empowering independent musical artists, by allowing them to build careers from their art with the necessary tools made accessible and affordable. 

  • Summary

For $4.99 per month, Too Lost provides musical artists with accessibility to state of the art tools for their careers.

We give artists a a place to monitor their digital sales, track their performances online, distribute new music, manage their catalogs, update information on digital releases, and split revenue streams with collaborators.

We give the independent artists & independent label unlimited control of their metadata & unlimited releases that we aggregate to 200+ digital stores directly (Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, Deezer, Amazon, Shazam, etc)

  • Cool Features

Our Digital Fingerprinting Technology protects user content from piracy and infringement. 

Our YouTube Content ID system collects money for users from any YouTube videos using their songs. Yes, users also keep 100% of those earnings... all included in their monthly earnings reports. Users can cash out their earnings through Paypal and other payment providers.

Our smooth and simple design makes uploading content to stores & platforms super easy. The platform helps guide users to upload singles and albums, making the experience simple and fast.

Too Lost offers advanced distribution powered by AI technology. 

This means content is scanned for potential copyright infringements & uncleared sound samples in record fast time. If user content is problematic, the user will receive a notice, and tips on how to re-upload without errors. If the content meets the basic guidelines, it is sent off to stores in minutes; and will appear in stores on the user's designated release day. 

Artists can update their cover arts, tracks and release information in realtime and deliver albums & songs to platforms in the same day.

With advanced marketing & promotional tools, Too Lost offers artists a one-stop shop to release music independently, without the fear of it not being seen or heard.

Every month, we send the top performing songs from the Top 50 users in each genre to our partners (major labels, PR companies & management companies). This gives artists who may be interested in a recording deal the opportunity to be heard by the right people. They can accept offers or deny them; the choice is for the artist.


  • Competition

Our current competitors in the market are too expensive, often up-selling their users with additional fees. Many platforms charge per release, and charge extra fees for certain outlets & platforms. We offer users access to release as much as they like, when they want & how they want.


  • Conclusion

The music industry is heavily saturated with mass amounts of song releases. Thats not a bad thing. However, plenty of good songs aren't discovered, even if they are available. Our play-listing portal, member chat rooms, engagement tools, and A&R discovery system are designed for maximum exposure. 

Artists need room to grow. We love growth, as an artists ourselves, we fully encourage trying new styles, experimenting with different sounds and stepping out of your comfort zone. Too Lost is designed to encourage creating content, and releasing it. Artists can feel comfortable spending five dollars a month, knowing that the average song on Spotify can make that back in a couple hours. 

We are providing the tools to build businesses and brands from passions and creativity. Doing it yourself has never been so rewarding.

Risks and challenges

There are other competitors in the market. Sites like Distrokid, Tunecore and CD Baby offer similar services. Although they are more expensive and offer much less to artists, they have millions of users.

However, those users are NOT in contractual agreements, so if they found a cheaper option + offering more, they may be inclined to switch services.

Music is timeless, and there will always be new creators looking to release music.
