OFFICIAL ARTIST CHANNELS

Signed and unsigned artistes can deliver premium music video content through VerseOne Distribution to Vevo. Upon request, VerseOne Distribution will request a new Vevo channel on your behalf, which can be merged with your existing YouTube channel as an Official Artist Channel (or OAC). It will be marked as verified by the music note icon next to the channel name.

All content uploaded to either channel will publicly display on the single OAC once the merge is complete.

YOUTUBE VS VEVO

Its important to clearly distinguish between your artiste YouTube Channel  and Vevo. When you have a Vevo channel, your video will be placed on a Vevo branded artist YouTube channel, thereby making your music video a part of Vevo’s 450,000 music video strong catalog, with music from artists of all levels and genres. Your music video has the potential to be placed on Vevo YouTube featured playlists to get more exposure. Having a Vevo branded channel will also add a verification tick for recognition.

Creating a VEVO channel

For artistes who currently do not have a Vevo Channel, rest assured, VerseOne Distribution can create a Vevo Channel for you. You can specify which new channel name you would like created or what your current channel is named (ie SingerVEVO). The following information will be required to create a new Vevo Channel:

  • A PR photo of the artist – must be high quality of at least 5,000 x 5,000 pixels at 72dpi, prferably professionally shot at a photo studio. It also must be an actual photo of just the artist, and cannot be a logo, graphic, or artistic rendering of the artist.

  • A Banner image – The template can be downloaded here. Please be aware of the “text and logo safe area” in the middle.

  • Please keep in mind that all Vevo channels must be created per artist, and must be an artist name. Vevo does NOT allow record labels to create a Vevo channel.Vevo creates new channels in bulk on every Monday, and channels are fully created by Wednesday. Any new channel request made after that Monday will go into the queue for the following Monday batch.For this reason, we require you to submit your video distribution request at least three weeks before your go-live date. This will ensure your channel and video are complete by your release date.
