We are an independent record label. We are a collective of
musicians. We produce music. We distribute music. We promote
music. We love music.
We believe in the live performance. We pine for the relationship
that existed between performer and audience before the advent of the
phonograph or the wire or the wax or payola. We'd like to think that
a snippet-in-time, stagnant, recording of music does not even
come close to the mind-expanding experience that music
could and should be. Hey, but albums are still pretty darn
We shy from using genres to label our artists. Listen, and label
them yourselves if you must. Our goal is poetry, the story, and an
honest day's music. Our ongoing mission is to seek out brave new
stuff, to go where few hipsters have gone before...just like
the good boat Enterprise. We are not Trekkies, but that was a good

(sad face) We've been trying to just eat the increases, especially on international orders,
but can't afford to do it any longer.

The long-awaited children's
album is finally here. In case you're thinking this is just
"kids stuff" and if you don't have kids it's not worth your time...
well you're flat wrong. Willy Tea and Chris have been writing
music for 20 years. In that time, songs get recorded as solo
projects or with bands, as in the case of the recent Good Luck
Thrift Store projects. Some of those songs felt a little like
they'd be suitable for a younger crowd and so they've just been
squirreling them away like nuts for winter over the years and
finally decided they had enough to compile them all into one
mega album. Features all original acoustic music by Chris Doud,
Willy Tea Taylor and Joey No Knows, with banjos, guitars and
harmonicas, and showcases the mandolin talents of Chandler Pratt
