CD Baby’s VP of Marketing, Kevin Breuner, has spent over 20 years working in the music business, both as a recording artist and an industry professional. A San Diego native, Kevin went east to attend Belmont University in Nashville, TN where he studied Music and Music Business. After college he joined the Atlanta-based band Smalltown Poets who later signed a recording contract with a major label under the EMI umbrella. Their self-titled debut album received critical acclaim, selling over 200,000 copies and landing the guys with a Grammy nomination, plus multiple Dove Award nominations. Over their career, Smalltown Poets has amassed ten Top 10 songs on radio, with two reaching the coveted #1 spot.
Now residing in Portland, Oregon, Kevin heads up CD Baby’s marketing efforts and hosts their popular DIY Musician Podcast, with the goal of helping independent artists understand the vast opportunities they have in this new music economy.
