CD Baby Milestone: $300 Million Paid Out To Artists

Direct-to-fan music distribution service CD Baby has paid its musicians more that $300 million since it first opened shop in 1997, according to a post on Hypebot.com. CD Baby began as a CD mail-order service for indie musicians, but has since expanded into digital distribution as well. The company expects to pay musicians $60 million this year alone, which goes to show that some folks are actually making money with digital music, after all.
