“We’re exited to be a part of the MSN Music service offerings. Independent record labels like Artemis Records have a wealth of talent to share, and the MSN Music service is a great venue to get more exposure for our artists. Music lovers now have easy access to hard-to-find talent, which benefits the music lovers as well as the labels.”

– Danny Goldberg

Chairman and CEO
Artemis Records

“We jumped at the opportunity and were the first label to sign on with MSN Music because the service is such an easy way for music lovers to get access to the talented artists of Digital Musicworks International (DMI). The search features allow music lovers to find information on our unique artists, while the download services allow for legal, fast access to high-quality digital music.”

– Mitch Koulouris

“The MSN Music service is a terrific step forward in EMI’s mission to make our music available to consumers whenever, wherever and however they want it.

Music fans will also benefit from how Microsoft is adding value with features that millions of people already use: MSN Radio, MSN Messenger and MSN Search.”

– David Munns

Chairman and CEO
EMI Music North America
