Introducing...Kevin James Pertinen

We did it, we signed our first artist to our humble label and we couldn't be more excited.  Please allow me to introduce Kevin James Pertinen..a name that many of you will become increasingly familiar with over time.  Kevin has cut his teeth playing shows all over this great land..from small dive bars, to intimate theatres and clubs. He has fronted rock bands, supported other notable acts and as of late he has crafted his own roots sound telling stories and writing songs that easily capture the hearts and minds of listeners.  He has a booming voice and that rare ability to craft a story in ways in which the listener feels a part of it...

Kevin has been writing and performing for years and we have now set the stage for him to release his first full band studio record.  His sound can oft be described as a unique blend of folk rock, americana and blues..parts familiar to just about everyone but with his own style making it uniquely his own.

We are thrilled to have Kevin on the roster and to have signed him to his first recording contract and we can't wait to get his music released to you all. Over the next few months we will be working with Kevin in a pre-production setting.. Helping create and develop content for his artist section on the website, promoting his shows, sharing some of his new music and assisting him with the production and recording of his debut record.  We are excited to get to work and to bring some kick ass music to your ears. Please join us in welcoming Kevin to the label family.  Cheers! - Noah

    Fantastic! We love Kevin James. We heard him at 10K and ended up staying the whole night because he was so good. Later, we ran into him at the Acadia and loved that set too. You're off to a great start.

    Saw Kevin & the fellas play over the weekend. Unbelievably good. It's always so cool when you go see a band not knowing what to expect and then being blown away. I'm listening to the first release on repeat, and looking forward to the next release.
