Downtown Music Holdings (DMH), the world’s largest independent provider of services to the global music industry, has announced the completion of its integration strategy, merging all its business-to-business and creator-focused operations into a single company, Downtown Music.

This comprehensive integration, which includes the merger of CD Baby’s operations into Downtown Music, expands access to Downtown’s full range of services to the entire global music industry. Currently, Downtown supports over 4 million artists and 5,000 business clients across 150 countries, who collectively generated over 1.5 trillion streams on major streaming platforms in 2023. Downtown clients won nearly 30% of the awards at the 2024 GRAMMYs.

As part of the integration, Pieter van Rijn has been named CEO of Downtown Music, reporting to Andrew Bergman, CEO of Downtown Music Holdings. Based in Amsterdam and New York, van Rijn brings extensive experience and a proven leadership track record within the organization and the industry. He previously served as Group President of Downtown Music and CEO of FUGA, which was acquired by DMH in 2020. He was appointed to the Downtown Music Holdings board in 2023.

We bring together all the critical services that creators and businesses need to navigate the modern music industry. I’m proud of the organization we’ve scaled and look forward to capitalizing on the exciting opportunities before us,’ said Andrew Bergman, CEO of Downtown Music Holdings.
