Caroline and Arts & Crafts—the Toronto-based independent artist services company—just announced a U.S. distribution partnership for Arts & Crafts Records, which will continue to be distributed in Canada by Universal Music Canada.
“We are extremely proud of our renewed partnership with Arts & Crafts," Caroline/Harvest Records General Manager Piero Giramonti said at lightning speed in between his daily fifth and sixth espresso shots. "They have consistently been the preeminent independent Canadian label, exhibiting impeccable taste throughout their history, with an unwavering commitment to artistry of the highest order. We are also psyched to begin our renewed relationship with the release of the new Broken Social Scene album, a set from the label's cornerstone artist (pictured)."
FYI, since its launch in 2002, A&C has gone on to release north of 130 albums from more than 70 artists, earning 24 Juno Awards and 10 Polaris Music Prize shortlist nominations.
