Can I upload covers of songs?

I do covers of songs on youtube. I was asked to share the tracks with my subscribers. Can I upload the covers I do on SoundCloud?

  • Hey there!

    I see that Niklas answered this question a little while back. Here is a link to help!

    If you want to cover a song and distribute it on SoundCloud, you have to ensure you've obtained the proper rights to do so. A recommendation would be to go to check out songclearance.com.

  • Does that include cover songs that I have no intention of distributing? I'm a musician for hire and was looking for a place to showcase my talents with a mix of covers and originals, but I wasn't going to distribute any work. is there a way to upload cover songs legally on soundcloud if my intent is for others to look at my sets and just listen?
    • Hello there. I am in the same boat with Jason. I have no intention of selling or distributing any covers... just want to use Soundcloud to showcase the covers that I play live during my acoustic gigs. So, I too, am asking the same question, is there a way to upload cover songs legally on soundcloud if the intent is for others to just listen in and not purcahse? Thank you!
