The global leader of independent music monetization

If you make music, the companies of AVL Digital Group will help you distribute and monetize your songs, videos, and sound recordings — worldwide.

As the global leader in independent music distribution and monetization, we have decades of experience helping recording artists, songwriters, and record labels distribute their music to all relevant platforms and tap into the most revenue sources. We do it all while providing artist-friendly terms, expert support, and the most reliable accounting in the business (CD Baby, for instance, has paid its clients EVERY SINGLE WEEK for 21+ years).

The companies of AVL Digital Group are the most respected brands in the fields of independent music distribution, music publishing, sync licensing, social video monetization, music marketing, and more.
