Hal Leonard has signed a strategic partnership with ROLI, the London-based music creation startup, that will greatly expand the availability of ROLI’s Seaboards at music retailers across the United States. The agreement is ROLI’s first direct distribution agreement in the U.S. MI channel. It follows ROLI’s strategy of investing in its partner network. The distribution agreement will greatly benefit ROLI’s U.S. channel partners, resellers and customers, as it creates efficiencies and improvements in back-end logistics, merchandising and partner training. The distribution agreement will cover all ROLI products including the Seaboard GRAND Stage as well as the Seaboard RISE 25 and the brand-new Seaboard RISE 49, which commercially launched on February 26.
