Android Central

As with much of today's Google Music announcement, the new Artist Hub service is also subject to some regional limitations at present. 

At launch, to upload and publish music through the Artist Hub, you must be a resident of the United States and its territories. The full list is as follows: 

  • The 50 United States and the District of Columbia
  • American Samoa
  • Guam
  • Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI)
  • U.S. Virgin Islands
  • Puerto Rico
  • Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI)
  • Federated States of Micronesia (FSM)

No word as yet on if or when the service may be opening up to the rest of the world, so we're all going to have to sit tight.

There are a lot of independent artists elsewhere in the World that would like to join in

Let's hope we get some good news soon!

Yeah, sure, Puerto Rican artists can upload their music but Puerto Rican users can't log in to the Google Music Store. And I'm a T-Mobile customer, too. Ugh, lawyers and stupid copyright laws.

hope it works out for you guys. I (in the U.S.) just made my artist profile, Xclusive Rydah. For only $25 to upload as many songs and albums! way worth it! keep as much as iTunes pays, without the cost of uploading and renewing your track every year. hope you guys get in soon!

Thanks for the semi heads up Android Central!
