CD Baby sold to Disc MakersPosted on 07/08/08
Here's some news from the music industry which will interest more than one scene band out there. Disc Makers, a CD and DVD manufacturer, announced the acquisition of CD Baby following a 7-year 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 one of if not the largest seller of independent music in the USA, working with over 240,000 artists worldwide. Its online music store receives over 100,000 visitors each day. 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.

My revenues from cdbaby have dropped like a rock since discmakers took over. Is anybody else having the same problem?

I think it's a good thing for CDBaby. While we don't currently use DiscMakers for pressing due to their prices, they are still a very professional and motivated company. A plus all around I think...
