Ghostly International enjoys biggest growth year to date

Ghostly International is enjoying the fruits of a highly successful year of business which came complete with rising record sales, new merchandising successes, and fresh partnership opportunities.

"We have had our biggest year to date," says Jeremy Peters, director of creative licensing & business affairs for Ghostly International.

Peters declined to detail the specifics of the ambient music label's success. However, he did say that Ghostly International has made a hire over the last year, expanding its staff to 10 employees and an intern. It’s also looking to make a hire in online merchandising.

Ghostly International launched out of Ann Arbor in 1999 and now calls the Tech Brewery home. It also has offices in New York and Los Angeles. Over the last year it profited from a wide variety of ventures, such as partnering with Warby Parker to create a Ghostly International brand of sunglasses. It also created the soundtrack for the Hohokum video game for PlayStation. It also released a new album for Tycho, Awake, last year.

"Sales have been pretty awesome on that," Peters says. "It's been one of our best sellers."

Peters expects Ghostly International to repeat those sorts of successes this year. He said some similar partnerships are in the pipeline for this year but declined to reveal what they are.

"Our level of growth has been consistent and heading upwards at a pretty decent tick," Peters says. "It's still organic and manageable."
