“Their roster of artists enjoys a loyal and growing fan base and I’m thrilled to be expanding and strengthening our relationship to deliver their music and grow their following.”
“We are pleased to extend our distribution agreement with ADA,” said VP Records President Randy Chin.
“We think a global approach to digital will grow our business and ADA has shown to be a solid partner.”
“We’ve been working with VP outside of North America since 2009,” said ADA U.K. GM Howard Corner, “and like other key partners they’ve seen the benefits our global infra-structure offers to an independent label in the current digital landscape.”Music Business Worldwide
