A2IM THANKS ITUNES FOR SHOWING INDIE LABELS SOME LOVE

Jim Mahoney, VP of A2IM, applauded the move by Apple’s iTunes Store to create an Indie Spotlight landing page with increased visibility. Mahoney said, “A2IM applauds the iTunes Music Store team for remaining engaged and communicative with A2IM and our independent label members tapping our collective expertise as they enhance the indie experience for their customers. With independent music making major strides in the digital market place, on the charts, and winning over 50 percent of this year’s Grammy Awards, it’s great to see iTunes recognizing the opportunities that independent music offers.” Currently in its soft launch, the page includes an indie podcast, playlists and label samplers alongside featured artists, though more features are in the works.
