Local Label Spotlight: Renaissance Records
By Niki D’Andrea
Many people in P-town are transplants who’ve made the trek from elsewhere to try and build a better life here in the Valley of the Sun. Some people, like John W. Edwards, bring their booming indie businesses with them. This week, we’d like to give a Local Label Spotlight shout-out to Edwards’ Renaissance Records.
Renaissance Records (Carefree) Founded in Nashville, TN in 1993 Relocated to Carefree, AZ in 2007
Die So Fluid
Why they’re hot:
Since 1995, Renaissance has had lucrative licensing deals with EMI-Capitol and Sony Music.
The label had wide distribution through Ryko until 2001, and is currently distributed through Koch.
They accept demo submissions from bands, and promise to respond whether they’re interested or not.
