In a world where independent distributors represent anywhere from 100 up to even 1000 labels, Ryko Distribution, with a 26 member label roster, offers labels the closest thing to having their own private and elite sales staff. Our continuing conscious commitment to maintaining a manageable roster of labels allows us the luxury of being able to devote the time, effort, energy and focus necessary to ensure that all the material we present has the best possible chance of success.
Our staff is comprised of 40 proven, well respected, product and retail savvy industry veterans who are committed to Ryko Distribution because they feel, as our labels do, that we truly care about the quality of the music and video products we represent. Recent industry trends have led to a load 'em up - release and forget mentality among many distributors, but through our years of experience we have learned that this strategy results in ultimate losses for retailers and labels alike. We believe that the key to long-term success is in keeping our catalog vibrant in the marketplace, strengthening label recognition and developing artists over time.
