About My Business:


IDC has revolutionized the independent music distribution business as a whole. Using the "Strength in Numbers" concept, and employing grassroots and industry tested practices, IDC has created a whole new avenue for current and next generation artists who are trying to bring their music to the public. IDC now offers Physical and Digital Distribution, Licensing, Marketing & Promotion, and Artist Development services to independent artists of all genres. Imagine if independent labels could harness the power of the major's distribution "Machine". Many independent labels which have already had limited success on their own are now banding together to create a stronger force as one cohesive collective. Each label already has standing in its own community, with a small sales force and a "Street Team". Each label already has artists and branding, websites and sales contacts. If these labels unite under one distribution banner, the power and market share would reflect a huge spike in each label's profit. This will allow each label to foster new and different products, and to underwrite the cost out of this newfound profit. With the addition of other independent labels, and a marketing plan that focuses on expanding territories at a slow but steady rate, as well as claiming and exploiting new undeveloped, underdeveloped, and non-traditional sales points, as well as using each label's local business office as a subsidiary, the concept of an Independent Distribution Collective (IDC) is born. Building on this concept as a base, IDC hopes to help the next generation of musicians and producers get their music to market. Never before has a distributor opened its doors to the thousands of talented artists and musicians who work so hard to score a record deal. The idea is that many of these people could bring a CD to market, without the overhead of a middleman. IDC actively promotes its services to the thousands of bands, labels, and solo artists who have spent years trying to secure that ever-elusive "Distribution Deal".
