News Update: UMG Ups Marks, Apple Cloud Needs Publishers, TuneCore Adds EVP, Ditto Music To US


(UPDATED) As expected, UMG promoted Amanda Marks to Global Head of Digital Accounts reporting to Rob Wells, President of Global Digital. Marks had been EVP & GM of Universal Music Distribution.

Apple may be close to signing UMG, it's last major, but it has no deals with music publishers, according to AllThingsDigital making a rumored early June launch less likely. And then there's deals with indie labels.

Digital music distributor TuneCore has named Malcolm Gillian as EVP of Brand & Business Development. Malcolm SVP of Branded Entertainment at marketing agency Relevent Partners and VP of Marketing at Track Entertainment.

Ditto Music, the UK's largest digital music distribution and label services company has launched a US office on Music Row in Nashville.

  1. Tunecore is a rip off. Go to CD Baby. Tunecore has ridiculous annual fees. CD Baby is onetime fee and your songs stay available in perpetuity. Compare the two services – Tunecore is a ripoff. With CD Baby even in 10 years your songs/album will stay on iTunes -with Tunecore, if you don’t pay the annual fee, you are outta there! Tunecore is a nickel and dime ripoff also – charging for each digital service they put your music on. I can’t believe people choose Tunecore over CD Baby.
