With the recent announcement of the Indie/DIY music distributor CD Baby laying out the platform of a major international expansion, the service that is offered is now better than ever. With the hiring of senior staff in Latin America, the UK and EU,East Asia/Pacific and Canada the way forward is exciting and has a whole new current spin.
Darryl Hurs joins CD Baby as the company’s new Canadian rep and will be based in Toronto. Hurs is no stranger to the indie music scene and founded Indie Week Canada almost two decades ago as a hobby and oversaw its transformation into a major event for the independent music community. Cashbox Canada caught up with Hurs in Toronto and his enthusiasm is infectious.
“I am looking forward to being part of the international marketing team of CD Baby representing Canada,” Hurs says. “We have run Indie Week for the last 18 years with the focus on helping indie artists and I look at this as an opportunity to step it up to a higher level. I am especially excited to help artists and businesses build success stories.”
