In a seamless transition into the AMPED family from their former home (ADA/WEA), Secretly moved over 50 active labels and thousands of releases over to AMPED. Shelly Westerhausen, Head of North American Physical Sales and Marketing said, “We are thrilled to partner with AMPED for US physical distribution in 2019. We’ve aligned with a partner that shares Secretly’s deep commitment to the physical marketplace as we continue to expand on so many great opportunities for our labels and artists.”

Secretly Distribution (SD) has been around for more than 20 years, and in 2018 is a global physical and digital distribution network serving all major markets worldwide. The catalog, as well as top sellers, cover a diverse range of genres, from indie to electronica to R&B and beyond, and are equally adept at developing the careers of underground artists as well as helping more established, pop-oriented artists reach their full sales potential across our broad international distribution network. Secretly is a completely independent company, by and for music fanatics.

With releases from Sharon Van Etten, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Angel Olsen, Tycho, Wild Nothing, Helado Negro, Mac Demarco, Grammy™ nominated Mitski and so many more, it’s no wonder why Secretly is a perfect partner for AMPED Distribution, who prides itself as being the most unique indie distributor with an unparalleled commitment to physical product and all things indie.
