Super D, the Worldwide Entertainment Wholesaler Retailer, announce two Grammy wins from The Civil Wars, an exclusive Super D Independent Distribution (SDID) artist.
Super D Independent Distribution is pleased to extend congratulations to Joy Williams and John Paul White known as The Civil Wars on their two Grammy Awards for Best Folk and Best Country Duo/Group.
As if winning the Grammys were not enough, a TV audience of nearly 40 million was exposed to their talent in a stunning 60 second performance of Barton Hollow which aired on the February 12 Grammy Telecast, followed by their third appearance on the Jay Leno show, February 13.
According to SoundScan, The Civil Wars received the largest sales increase of any of the performing artists. This represents an unprecedented sales breakthrough for an independently distributed and artist owned label.
Super D Independent Distribution, known as SDID, is proud to have served in the role of the exclusive US Distributor for Sensibility Music and The Civil Wars. “We view this success as proof of what is possible in today’s music marketplace with the right combination of talent and a sales and marketing strategy to fully exploit the sales potential,” said SDID General Manager Pip Smith. Pip went on to say, “The Civil Wars are to be commended for assembling a passionate and committed team to help make this success possible.” Super D VP of Purchasing Tony Moyers added “Of the hundreds of artist and label submissions that we receive, The Civil Wars and Sensibility Music came to the table armed with inspiring music as well as a very creative approach to Marketing in an environment that requires a new way of thinking.” “We are happy to have been able to partner with them in a new distribution model allowing them to captain their own ‘digital’ ship while providing a highly engaged physical sales model that produced results exceeding both our expectations.”
