Symphonic Distribution has entered into a partnership with AMPED to provide physical distribution of vinyl, CDs, and cassettes in North America ‘and beyond’.
While new to physical as a company, Symphonic’s team are physical distribution veterans.
Symphonic’s physical distribution operation is helmed by Kevin Hopper, the longtime veteran of TVT Records, The Orchard, and Rykodisc, and Nick Gordon, a veteran of Caroline Distribution and The Orchard.
The two execs were previously responsible for building The Orchard’s physical distribution.
Symphonic’s physical distribution veterans also include Randall Foster (Naxos), Michael Burrows (Caroline, Universal), and Jakub Alexander (Ghostly).
“Offering physical distribution is a natural extension of Symphonics’s comprehensive digital music and video distribution offering and artist services arsenal.”

“Offering physical distribution is a natural extension of Symphonics’s comprehensive digital music and video distribution offering and artist services arsenal,” said Nick Gordon, Symphonic’s Chief Client Officer.
“What’s more, we’re glad to help labels get their products into stores during what has been a stressful time in the physical distribution and retail business.
“AMPED is the best in the business, and we’re excited to work with Dean, Jocelyn, Michael Toppe, and the rest of our old friends there.”
