Record Labels have Birthdays too

Just played the CD/DVD compilation celebrating the 30 year anniversary of Edmonton-based Stony Plain Records. Got to meet Alvin, the man behind the scenes at Stony Plain. Lots of other artists and music industry types in attendance.

My own label, NorthernBlues Music, will be celebrating 5 years next month. Man did that go by fast. I was there right at the beginning, and even though my CD didn't come out till last fall, we had signed the deal in 2001. It just took me a little while - too many distractions in my life (like making a living)

Happy Birthday Holger, Happy Birthday Fred. Two great guys supporting the blues in Canada.
