Disc Makers Acquires Leading Online Independent CD And Download Seller CD Baby

Disc Makers, the leader in CD and DVD manufacturing for independent artists and filmmakers, announced today the acquisition of CD Baby, the largest independent music seller in the world, following a 7-year close strategic partnership between the two companies.

CD Baby enables independent musicians to sell their music in both physical (CD) and digital (download) format through its online store cdbaby.com. The Portland, Oregon-based company is the largest seller of independent music in the country, working with over 240,000 artists worldwide, and its online music store receives over 100,000 visitors each day. With over 2 million digitized tracks under management, CD Baby is also the largest provider of independent music for Apple iTunes and other digital download sellers like Amazon MP3, Napster, and Rhapsody.

"I'm excited to bring together the two strongest brand names in the independent community," said Tony van Veen, President of Disc Makers. "CD Baby has paid musicians more than $81 million over the past 10 years for CD and download sales. It is one of the greatest tools created to allow musicians to make money from their music. Now artists can get manufacturing, CD sales, download sales, and web hosting through CD Baby's HostBaby division seamlessly and more easily than ever."

CD Baby will continue to operate as a separate company, focused on online CD sales, distribution, and download sales. CD Baby founder Derek Sivers commented: "It's amazing that this little hobby I started 10 years ago has benefited so many musicians. Disc Makers was my first choice to take the company to new heights. Their operational expertise is just what little CD Baby needed to grow up."

Sivers will continue to be involved with CD Baby as a consultant.
