Independent Australian Artist Lee Safar
Signs Major Distribution Deal In Japan

Lee Safar has signed her first major digital distribution deal with Japanese distribution company ICJ Inc.

International Distribution Director of ICJ Inc., Won Wai Kit said today about the signing “Our team over here at ICJ is very excited to explore all opportunities for Lee's music in Japan. Lee's touching story and career path will be a great plus to Japanese fans." ICJ Inc. is the exclusive music distributor for MySpace Music in Japan where the primary source of music consumption is via mobile media content rather than sources such as iTunes or traditional CD purchase. Together with direct digital Music distribution, ICJ are currently negotiating other opportunities for Lee’s music in the Japanese market such as leading fashion label Diesel together with added synchronisation opportunities with Japanese television and film.

In a time when the global music industry is in such turmoil about the ineffectiveness of traditional business models, Safar sites staying focused on the methods outlined in her inspirational brand, Dream Angel, as the means for making continued progress in building a successful career as an independent artist.

Further to this announcement, Lee has appointed Bruce Butler as the Business and Artist Manager- Japan for Safar’s Music Business Company The House Of Jote Pty Ltd. Known for her very hands on approach in managing her own music company, Lee said recently “Bruce is a trusted friend and mentor and a welcomed addition to the team. I have consulted him on almost every decision I’ve made with my music business over the last 3 years, from recording the first EP to the New Moon Soundtrack and beyond. He has 30 years experience covering various aspects of the Australian music industry and Japan is a market in which we are both extremely interested. The richness in culture together with the constantly evolving trends in Japan excites us both”.

As an independent artist, Safar continues to build her music globally using the steps outlined in her Dream Angel process to live her dreams. This most recent signing in Japan, the second largest music market in the world, further extends her focus on the global digital distribution of her music in a time when artists and labels alike are fighting to find a new business model to substantiate longevity in an ever-changing music industry.
