AVL Digital Group, the parent company of CD Baby, DiscMakers, Oasis and has acquired AudioMicro and its AdRev and DashGo divisions. The purchase adds strong b2b capabilities serving record labels and publishers, as well as its strong base of D.I.Y. artists.

AudioMicro includes YouTube monetization platform AdRev, a YouTube Content ID manager and Multi-Channel Network,  label services provider and distributor DashGo and synch licensing platform AudioMicro.

“Bringing these companies together with CD Baby will amplify our ability to serve more kinds of clients, from newly minted independent artistes to established labels and publishers,” said AVL Digital Group CEO Tony Van Veen. 

“The number of rights we now represent has multiplied substantially, and we have strengthened our arsenal of technology for rights holders with this acquisition. I’m very excited about how AdRev’s unique Content ID technology and DashGo’s API will help optimize asset monetization for artists, labels, and publishers across the globe,” he added.

“The addition of AdRev and DashGo allows us to offer more in-demand services to our existing clientele, our core business of independent artists and small labels, and help monetize the content of a much broader range of music companies,” said CD Baby CEO Tracy Maddux. “Worldwide, it makes us one of the largest players, perhaps even the largest.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
