E1 Entertainment today acquired the rights to more than 25,000 master recordings as well as a publishing company with the acquisition of IndieBlu Music Holdings.

IndieBlu’s roster includes Artemis, V2 (North America), Light Records, Compendia Music Group, IndieBlu Records, Vanguard Classics, Spitfire, Tone Cool, Triloka and Ropeadope.

The deal also boosts E1's Nashville presence; eight former IndieBlu staffers will join E1's Nashville team. Michael Olsen will stay on as president of IndieBlu and will report to Michael Koch, CEO of E1 Entertainment U.S.

IndieBlu was formed in April 2009 when it acquired all the assets of Sheridan Square Entertainment and its affiliates in a UCC foreclosure auction, according to a press release.
