CD Baby is a company “by artists, for artists.” Its workers have Friday afternoon jam sessions and brag about “the world’s largest crazy ball of packing slips.” But CD Baby (and its sister companies, HostBaby, BookBaby and FilmBaby) are serious business, too. The world’s largest online distributor of independent music, CD Baby has paid out more than $200 million in royalties since 1998. More than 400,000 albums and 4 million tracks reside in its catalog.
