Canada's Leading Distributors of Indie Music Joining Forces~billboard.com
Two of Canada's leading independent distributors, Toronto's Outside Music and Montreal's Distribution Select, the largest independent distributor of CDs and videos in Canada, are joining forces to strengthen and better serve the independent sector nationwide.
Effective Dec. 1, the two companies will merge their sales and distribution services, while maintaining their respective offices. In a statement, Outside founder and president Lloyd Nishimura said, "This coming year we celebrate 25 years of supporting great artists and amazing labels. We are happy to announce an alliance that will allow for continued support of our artist and label partners for years to come." Select vice president Christian Breton, who spent 14 years at Outside from 1995, said he has immense respect for their commitment and longevity. "I know that, as a combined force, we can enhance our label support, and maintain great service to our retail partners. We can also offer new labels an excellent alternative in both the French and English markets, particularly those that remain dedicated to a physical sales presence."
