- RED Distribution has signed an exclusive deal with Los Angeles based label IHEARTCOMIX Records. Founded by DJ Franki Chan, the label's upcoming releases include a re-release of the first Matt and Kim album, the Heartsrevolution Switchblade EP, and a new album by Totally Michael. The label was previously self-distributed.

- Cherry Lane Music Publishing Co. has signed rising indie rockers Delta Spirit to a long term, co-publishing agreement. The band is currently supporting its debut album "Ode To Sunshine," which was initially self-released and then re-issued in October by Rounder Records. The band is set to perform at the SXSW Festival and Bonnaroo Festival.

Delta Spirit is a southern-tinged rock quintet from San Diego that uses unconventional instruments such as trash can lids and orchestral bass drums to create a unique sound, the Cherry Lane press release on the signing said.
