Redeye signs partnership with Proper

We’re pleased to have announced a new deal with leading US independent distributor Redeye, covering physical distribution in the UK and Ireland for a number of prominent indie labels.

Effective from April 1st, the deal sees us bring our distribution expertise into play for some of North America’s top indie labels, including Yep Roc Records (Dave Alvin, Aoife O’Donovan, Tony Joe White, Robyn Hitchcock, Josh Rouse), Barsuk Records (Death Cab for Cutie, Big Scary), Kill Rock Stars (Gossip, Deerhoof, The Decemberists), Signature Sounds (Lake Street Dive, Eilen Jewel), Northern Spy (Thurston Moore, Shilpa Ray), Don Giovanni Records (Screaming Females) and many others.

Spanning everything from indie rock and jazz to punk and American Roots music, in total the agreement extends to over 100 of Redeye’s label partners with the first release under the deal being US singer-songwriter Josh Rouse’s latest album, The Embers Of Time (out 6 April on Yep Roc Records).

Glenn Dicker, co – founder of Redeye said: “I met Malcolm (Mills) 20+ years ago on Nick Lowe’s tour bus and we’ve remained friends ever since. Sitting across the table from their team is like looking at a slightly fogged mirror image of ourselves. We ask the same questions, have the same responses and hold the same values to be important. Like us Proper are passionate about all kinds of music and are extremely transparent about their business. We are thrilled to officially work together.”

Drew Hill, Managing Director at Proper commented: “It’s fantastic to be working with Redeye across so many of its amazing label partners, and we’re looking forward to bringing their new releases to UK and Irish fans.”
