Disc Makers has announced DAD (Digital Audio Distribution), a service that provides independent bands and artists the opportunity to sell their songs online on sites like Apple's iTunes Music Store, Listen.com's Rhapsody, AOL’s MusicNet, Emusic and newcomer BuyMusic.com.

“It usually takes awhile before breakthroughs in music distribution are available to independent musicians, but with DAD, Disc Makers is ahead of the curve,” said Tony van Veen, VP of sales and marketing for Disc Makers. “Our goal is simple: to give independent musicians the tools they need to sell more music."

In order to qualify for this program, an artist needs to have a CD out on the market. Once an artist completes the sign-up process, he/she automatically gets his/her CD(s) distributed through CD Baby. CD Baby will administer the program and use its encoding and tracking system to distribute and monitor CD sales, keeping 9% of the net income generated from online digital sales.

The DAD service is free with new CD orders with Disc Makers. The service is also available to artists who do not make their CDs with Disc Makers for $75.
