Symphonic Enters Physical Distribution Market With AMPED Deal

Symphonic Distribution has entered the physical distribution market via a partnership with AMPED. The partnership will offer clients physical distribution of vinyl, CDs, and cassettes in North America and beyond.

Symphonic’s physical distribution operation is helmed by Kevin Hopper, the longtime veteran of TVT Records, The Orchard, and Rykodisc, and Nick Gordon, a veteran of Caroline Distribution and The Orchard.

The two were previously responsible for building The Orchard’s physical distribution offering out of the ashes of TVT, and are no strangers to adding physical services to a digital-native company. Symphonic’s physical distribution veterans also include Randall Foster (Naxos), Michael Burrows (Caroline, Universal), and Jakub Alexander (Ghostly).

“Offering physical distribution is a natural extension of Symphonic’s comprehensive digital music and video distribution offering and artist services arsenal,” says Gordon, Symphonic’s Chief Client Officer. “What’s more, we’re glad to help labels get their products into stores during what has been a stressful time in the physical distribution and retail business. AMPED is the best in the business, and we’re excited to work with Dean, Jocelyn, Michael Toppe, and the rest of our old friends there.”

Indie music distribution and marketing company Symphonic Distribution was founded by Jorge Brea in 2006; the company is headquartered in Tampa, Florida, with offices in Nashville, Brooklyn and Bogota, Columbia. Symphonic has worked with label and artists including Nick Murphy, deadmau5, Daddy Yankee, Rowdy Records, Ozuna and more.
