Curve Music And Amplified Distribution Announce Worldwide Physical Distribution Agreement


Curve Music is pleased to announce it has reached a worldwide physical distribution agreement with Amplified Distribution. Through Amplified's global platform, Curve Music will extend its reach and escalate the distribution of label products. Under this new agreement, Curve Music's roster of artists will be supported by AMPED and Alliance Entertainment, one of the world's leading wholesale and distribution organizations.

"It's very exciting to be working with Amplified Distribution, who are now ensuring that Curve Music's physical product both vinyl and CD is made easily available worldwide to the fans of the artists that we represent," says Brian Hetherman, President and Founder of Curve Music. "Curve has always
continued to sell physical goods very respectably despite what others may consider a downturn in physical demand."

2017 marks the 15th anniversary of the Toronto based independent record label Curve Music. An industry veteran with over two decades of experience, founder and label President Brian Hetherman began his career at MCA/Universal Canada where he worked with top acts including, The Tragically Hip, Guns N Roses, Aerosmith, Peter Gabriel and Alanis Morissette. In 1995 Hetherman was appointed the youngest Director of A&R at MCA/Universal Canada and was responsible for the label's signing of successful Canadian artists including Souldecision, Holly McNarland, Age of Electric and Jason McCoy.

Curve Music was developed after Hetherman began Cerberus Management and Consulting and realized that an independent label was a necessity for artist managers in the current music climate. Today, Curve Music's roster includes The Dead South, Garth Hudson, Lindsey Broughton among others.

Curve Music's current digital distribution agreement for North America will remain in place with Entertainment One and worldwide with IDLA.
