The agreement will see Cherrytree Records begin to operate independently and will exclusively distribute Pop Alternative music globally through ADA, the companies said.

Cherrytree Records' first release as a complete independent will be 14-year old vocal Skylar Stecker's This Is Me -The Signature Edition album set to hit this June. Stecker has generated considerable radio airplay from Radio Disney and recently concluded a double-billing tour with Bay Area hip hop duo Kalin & Myles who feature on her latest video "Bring Me to Life," produced by RedOne.

"We started Cherrytree Records with the same artist-centric approach and independent spirit that have guided us through our first decade of extraordinary musical and cultural adventures. I'm proud to announce that our new, fully independent infrastructure – including ADA as our exclusive label distributor and Kobalt as our publishing administrator – corresponds exactly with our philosophy and gives us the resources and agility to serve our artists with even more flexibility and bespoke support. I want to thank Eliah Seton and Kenny Weagly whose dynamism and progressive thinking made the decision to distribute Cherrytree Records' releases through ADA a very easy and comfortable one," said Cherrytree Music chairman Martin Kierszenbaum.
