Cheers To 25 Years & Many More

<strong>Cheers To 25 Years & Many More</strong>

In 2022, The Orchard celebrated 25 years of empowering independent creators. Our founder, Richard Gottehrer, has always said “The Orchard is a place to grow.” And boy, have we grown… What began as a single storefront on Orchard Street, in New York City’s Lower East Side, has expanded to over 45 offices worldwide. 

To our partners – Thank you. Thank you for your trust, collaboration, and valued partnership that has contributed to The Orchard’s 25 years of excellence. Thank you, perhaps most of all, for all the music. 

To our global Orchardites – Thank you for your dedication, your creativity, and your values that contribute to The Orchard’s culture. It’s the individuals that make a company, and each of you that makes The Orchard the very best. 

The Orchard will be closed for winter recess from Monday, December 19, through January 2, and will return to work on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Keep in mind that recess dates may vary slightly across our global offices.

In 2022, we broke records, expanded global reach, and redefined what it means to be a “top artist.” We’ve already done it. And we’ll do it again. Here’s to 25 years of being the world’s largest independent music distributor. And here’s to many more. Cheers!
