    The Orchard Opens Tokyo Office

    Aug 21, 2019

    Tokyo –  August 21, 2019  – The Orchard, the global leader in independent music distribution and artist and label services, announced today that it is expanding into Japan, the second largest music market in the world. The company is establishing new fully staffed Tokyo-based operations that will provide local support, release strategy and expertise to the Japanese independent music industry. 

    The Orchard Japan team will be led by Yuuki Kaneko, Vice President, Japan and report into The Orchard’s global headquarters in New York. Kaneko comes to The Orchard from Amazon Japan where he worked on the music team during his 11-year tenure. Previously, Kaneko also held positions at Tower Records Japan.

    The opening of a local office in Japan further enhances The Orchard’s global reach and value proposition, and extends its position as the industry’s most comprehensive worldwide solution for independent artists and labels. 

    The Orchard Japan will offer music distribution and a suite of services to Japanese labels, management companies and artists, giving them access to both local and global opportunities. It also will provide international independent repertoire, extensive digital and physical service offerings for access to the Japanese music market. 

    Creators will have direct access to The Orchard’s robust technology platform, which boasts 11 languages in addition to the local Japanese language and houses marketing, data and reporting tools to manage digital and physical assets. The Orchard team in Tokyo will provide regional expertise and language capabilities to sign and develop Japanese artists and labels, as well as build artist awareness and engagement both locally and internationally. The Orchard’s distributed artist and label base will have the ability to leverage the Tokyo office’s supply chain and network in the region, expanding reach worldwide and revenue streams in a thriving market.

    Brad Navin, CEO of The Orchard, said, “We are excited to enter the Japanese market and have Yuuki and the Tokyo team working with independent labels and artists to embrace the opportunities offered by Japan’s ongoing shift to streaming. Yuuki’s substantial knowledge of both the digital and physical business within Japan will help us deliver on our goal of having local support in every key part of the world, led by people who have a firm grasp on the region’s strengths and deeply understand the music culture and industry. This expansion gives even greater reach to our global market solution for discovering music, reaching untapped audiences and advancing consumption.”

    Kaneko said, “I am honored to lead the company’s efforts in showcasing Japanese artists and labels worldwide. The Orchard Japan is in a position to bring the Japanese music community to new heights on a global scale, using transparent analytics from our proprietary technology to grow and develop The Orchard’s international roster within the territory.”

  • The Orchard Acquires North American Rights To Paul Lieberstein and Starstream Media’s “Song of Back and Neck”

    The Orchard Acquires North American Rights To Paul Lieberstein and Starstream Media’s “Song of Back and Neck”

    Jul 13, 2018

    Romantic comedy premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in April

    Los Angeles, CA, July 13, 2018 – The Orchard announced today that the company has secured North American rights to Song Of Back and Neck, written and directed by first-time filmmaker Paul Lieberstein. The Emmy® award-winning writer, producer and actor, best known for his work on the American version of The Office, stars in the film alongside Rosemarie DeWitt (United States of Tara, Mad Men, La La Land), Brian D’Arcy James (13 Reasons Why, Molly’s Game, Smash), Robert Pine (Jobs, Kaplan’s Korner), Clark Duke (The Office, I’m Dying Up Here, Kick-Ass), and Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Spy, Ghostbusters). Song Of Back and Neck is slated for a 2018 release.

    Fred wakes, collapses on the floor in back pain, and continues his day as usual, on the floor. It’s hardly the first time – he’s resigned to a life of pain, having tried every remedy possible and been told by a top surgeon (Paul Feig) that there’s nothing to be done. But he hasn’t yet tried having an affair with a client (Rosemarie DeWitt) at the start of her complicated divorce. He hasn’t yet tried her acupuncturist, whose 200 needles in Fred’s back reveal a bizarre talent. And he hasn’t yet begun to wonder if his problems are more psychological than physical.

    “Everybody I know is either close to somebody with chronic back pain or has it themselves, and that creates an ideal setting for a romantic comedy — it’s hard to believe I got here first. I suspect we will soon see hundreds upon hundreds of films set in the world of back pain,” said Paul Lieberstein. “I’m thrilled to be working with The Orchard on this. I’ve been really lucky to find partners in Starstream, Exhibit, and now The Orchard, all committed to taking chances on something different.”

    “Never before has one man’s back pain caused as much laughter as Paul Lieberstein’s,” said Producer Jennifer Prediger. “A funny movie about a man getting in touch with his anger could not come at a better time.”

    Song Of Back and Neck is pure Paul Lieberstein, and that’s a compliment,” said Paul Davidson, EVP of Film and TV, The Orchard. “It’s a smart, biting and hilarious film that takes chances in ways that are both fresh and surprising. Isn’t that enough? It was for us.”

    Song Of Back and Neck is produced by Lieberstein (Afternoon Nap) and Kim Leadford and Jennifer Prediger of StarStream Media. Executive Producers are Fernando Loureiro, Roberto Vasconcellos (Exhibit), Candice Abela-Mikati (Boo Pictures), Allen Babakhanloo and Lauren Russell.

    The deal was negotiated by The Orchard’s Danielle DiGiacomo and CAA Media Finance on behalf of the filmmakers.

    The Orchard is also behind the recent release of Bart Layton’s American Animals, one of the year’s strongest independent film debuts, acquired in partnership with MoviePass Ventures. Upcoming releases include the Colombian crime drama Birds Of Passage, directed by Cristina Gallegos and Ciro Guerra; Jeremiah Zagar’s We The Animals, which won the NEXT Innovator Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival; and Eva Vives’ All About Nina.

    The Orchard Acquires North American Rights To Karen Gillian’s Directorial Debut “The Party’s Just Beginning”

    Jul 09, 2018

    The coming-of-age story premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival in April

    Los Angeles, CA, July 9, 2018 – The Orchard announced today that the company has secured North American rights to Karen Gillan’s directorial debut The Party’s Just Beginning. Gillan also wrote and stars in the film, which was produced by Gillan’s producing partner Mali Elfman, as well as R. Andru Davies and Claire Mundell. The cast also includes Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hobbit), Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game), Paul Higgins (Utopia), Siobhan Redmond (Holby City), Jamie Quinn (Bluestone 42), and Rachel Jackson (Two Doors Down). The Party’s Just Beginning is slated for a theatrical release this fall.

    Liusaidh (Karen Gillan) is a sharp-witted, foul-mouthed, heavy-drinking twenty-something who is still reeling from a recent loss. Living with her parents in the remote Scottish Highlands, she spends most nights boozing at the local pub and embarks on what she assumes—perhaps rightly—will be yet another short-term fling when she hooks up with an out-of-towner (Lee Pace) who is going through a midlife crisis. At the same time, a wrong number leads Liusaidh to an anonymous connection with an old man grappling with his own end-of-life questions and regrets. These three characters, each at their own crossroads, search for answers—together and independently—in the cold northern landscape, under fleeting glimpses of the Northern Lights.

    “Totally and completely thrilled to team up with The Orchard on my directorial debut,” said Karen Gillan. “I greatly admire the films that The Orchard put out into the world and I’m honored to haveThe Party’s Just Beginning be one of them”. “Karen Gillan’s The Party’s Just Beginning establishes her as a unique talent and fresh new voice that absolutely blew us away,” said Paul Davidson, EVP, Film and TV at The Orchard. “It’s a directorial debut anchored by a stellar performance and a compelling screenplay that makes her a true triple threat. We are excited to partner with her on her first feature.

    The deal was negotiated between The Orchard’s Danielle DiGiacomo and UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.

    The Orchard is also behind the recent release of Bart Layton’s American Animals, one of the year’s strongest independent film debuts, acquired in partnership with MoviePass Ventures. Upcoming releases include the Colombian crime drama Birds Of Passage, directed by Cristina Gallegos and Ciro Guerra; Jeremiah Zagar’s We The Animals, which won the NEXT Innovator Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival; and Eva Vives’ All About Nina.
