Audible Diversion Group Removes the Middle Man, Gives Away Free Music

Published: 2008-09-09
Tim McTague of Underoath, Jay Vilardi of The Almost, and a Tampa Bay area based film maker Ryan Gardner, have just launched Audible Diversion Group, a new audio/visual arts and music company. "I just wanted to start a small audio/video production collective in the beginning. The whole online/digital distribution end of things just fell into place really. I wanted to make records and films and help get it out," says McTague.

Filmmaker Ryan Gardner says while the company is excited to take on new clients, ADG needs to be choosy about who they take on, "With our main focus on audio and film, and only so many hours in a day, we've really had to be selective with who we take on. We'd rather have a smaller roster and be able to go above and beyond what they would expect, rather than have dozens of artists and let things start suffering due to committing too much to too many people. I think it's an easy trap to get caught in so we're always aware of what our end mission is."

The company recently upgraded their online system with a digital download feature, which enables them to sell their films and albums completely digitally and free of any distribution hold ups and conditions. McTague rants with excitement,"With our new system we are essentially a one stop shop for online distribution for artists of film and audio. There's no middle-man, or corporate giant muddying the water. Anything that the artist wants within reason is possible. We have complete control!"

To kick off their launch, Audible Diversion Group alongside one of their newest artists Tampa hard rock/punk band, Safety, have decided to give the band's latest release A Season of Bad Dreams away for free digitally via their online store.
