A GLOBAL LABEL FOCUSSING ON NEW AND RECOGNISED NAMES WITHIN THE WORLD OF ROOTS ROCK MUSIC, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE HEAVIER SIDE OF COUNTRY & BLUES
AN IMPRINT UNDER THE SPINEFARM RECORDS BANNER.
Snakefarm Records has been set up to provide a supportive home for artists, both established and new, from the increasingly buoyant roots rock world – music based on authenticity and emotion, under-pinned by a strong musical legacy plus a core set of values and beliefs.
With the barriers between different genres becoming increasingly blurred, the time is right for pre-conceptions to be put to one side and music to be enjoyed purely in terms of quality and its ability to connect; and if it’s guitars that primarily illuminate your life, then the worlds of Southern Rock, Country, Blues, Americana, etc. are perfect areas to explore, being rich with great players (old and new) and often featuring multiple-guitar line-ups. Indeed, it has been said that every true Southern Rock album should close with a track that moves seamlessly into an extended guitar work-out that only comes to a close when the grooves run out (and, yes, the vinyl reference is appropriate here).
Says Snakefarm King Cobra Dante Bonutto:-
“There’s so much great activity in rootsy guitar music right now, and Snakefarm is here to both showcase and celebrate everything that’s going on. As well as working with new artists and acts, including key names from the UK, the label will be re-issuing classic titles and generally seeking to establish itself as the go-to hub for activity within the ‘real music’ domain – a cultural foothold in an area of the market that seems to be expanding at a heady rate, with Nashville (arguably the music world’s most influential city) now representing a worldwide brand.”
