'Cd Baby' Independent Music Distribution Makes Everyone Happy

CD Baby claims that it is, "a little online record store that sells albums by independent musicians." In fact, it is one of the largest independent music sellers on the Internet. 

Located in Portland, Oregon, the staff takes a great deal of pride in the personal touch. They only sell music that comes directly from musicians. They don’t kick artists out of their catalog if the artist doesn’t make a lot of sales.

When you purchase from CD Baby, you get a great little confirmation email that will make your day - if you like to laugh.

Founded by Derek Sivers in 1998, the company was purchased, along with Host Baby, a musician-friendly web hosting site, by fellow distributor and Partner, Disc Makers in August 2008.

Several musicians that I know market through CD Baby. It’s an arrangement that’s good for the performing artist, the customer, and for independent music. Stats for Grassroots Music Marketing Trending: Older & Mild
