Katie Garibaldi, who recently released her new album "Next Ride Out" and signed with IDC in late 2009, calls the distribution label, "A real gem. It's not too often you find good honest people who not only work very hard for indie artists, but who truly care and believe in you're career. Also, since they're located in San Francisco, it's been a thrill for me to be so involved in the projects we've worked on. I've had nothing but the best experience being an IDC artist and I'm so honored and excited to be a part of their showcase!"
The event promises to be a spectacular showcase, highlighting some of Bay Area's best indies. Learn more about the artists and hear their music at their websites:
Independent Distribution Collective was conceived in 2004 and has since become a strong sales and marketing force.

Katie Garibaldi is a touring indie singer/songwriter and guitarist from the San Francisco Bay Area. At the age of 25, she recently released her sixth full-length album, Next Ride Out, produced by editor in chief of Guitar Player magazine Michael Molenda, and is also named a Music Connection Magazine Top 100 Unsigned Artists of 2009. Skope Magazine says, "Overall, Katie Garibaldi and her new work offer remarkable traits such as: true-to-oneself-artistry, excellent musicianship and lyrics and vocals to die for." Radioindy calls Next Ride Out, "a folk-pop tour de force to rival those of similar singer-songwriters whose brands are veritable household names. Like Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Fiona Apple or Ani DiFranco, Garibaldi is a soulful singer/songwriter of real - if largely unheralded - merits." JB Swift of Swift Reviews writes, "It's no surprise that yet another good album comes out of San Francisco, CA. Singer/Songwriter Katie Garibaldi, however, raises the bar. Katie is no stranger to music as the owner of her own record label, Living Dream Music, a recording artist and touring performer. On her sixth full-length album, Next Ride Out, she showcases her skills as a true Americana artist." Next Ride Out is currently being played on over 30 radio stations nationally, as well as many internet radio stations, including WomensRadio and Women of Substance Radio, and can also be heard on various international stations. WomensRadio included Katie on their "Hot Up-N-Comers of 2010" and she was also featured in Sonicbids "Artists 2 Watch" presented by Skope Mag in February 2010.
Katie is an innovative businesswoman, volunteers as the San Francisco chapter coordinator of the non-profit organization that supports artists and songwriters, Songsalive!, the owner of her own label, Living Dream Music, a creative recording artist, and aggressive national touring performer who has acquired a devoted fan base, due in large part to her engaging live shows, and personal connection to her listeners through her music.
Next Ride Out is available at http://www.katiegaribaldi.com, iTunes, Amazon.com, CD Baby, and leading music stores and chains near you.
