Blue Pie Records Pass 2.5M in Downloads !

It has been a long and often very hard road to drive down but the hard times seem to be passing us by as we drive to greener pastures. We have now passed the 2.5M download mark from our catalogues with over 350,000 downloads happening last month alone. The label continues to expand through the acquisition of catalogues all spurred on through the strategic alliances that I have set up over the past 6 months with partners like Full Entertain Music and Out Of The Box Records now being acquired and Stephen Wrench now coming on board to head up the new Global Content Acquisition Team under my leadership, things are looking great.

We are being asked to look after more and more administration and back end reporting services for labels due to the investments that we made into the development of world class reporting and accounting systems. Transparency in business is something that has been close to non existent in the music industry as a whole over 10 years ago now is the way of business for the leaders in the rush to secure market share. As the major labels all grapple with how to deal with the new Music.Dot.Com market and how to monetise this new market the leaders in the independent space like IODA, The Orchard and of course smaller labels like Blue Pie will continue to grow and lead the way forward.

I would like to thank my team for the hard work and in particular the many great artists that are now enjoying solid growth in their downloads with acts like:
Sunny Neji, Black Face, Burning The Day, Dale Bozzio, Sahra, Bone Angel, Barry Crocker, and icons like Peter and Gordon, Gordon Waller all continue to sell consistently the world is now enjoying more and more Blue Pie music. This is what we all strive to achieve. I am looking forward to the next 12 months of growth as we are so close now to breaking into the mainstream charts in several markets simultaneously that I can hardly wait to write what the next twelve months of sales will be.
