1212 Records Announces Launch

What are we and why are we here?

1212 Records was born from a mutual love of music from Annie, Brian, and Collin that was reignited in the basements and bars of Bloomington, Indiana. Those local shows soundtracked their four years of college, and after graduation the three almost immediately began discussing how to channel that passion. This is the result.

This label is located everywhere. We are in New York with Annie, Los Angeles with Brian, Chicago with Collin, and in all of the cities that wind and connect together in between them. Our goal is to reach as far as we can to bring people the love, support, and closeness of DIY and local music. That feeling of inclusion has been so important to us, and we want to share it as much as we can.

With that in mind, it seems to only make sense that the first two artists to join the 1212 family are from the very same DIY community that inspired us to begin with. Singer-songwriter Heaven Honey and indie rock trio Fresh Kill, both from Bloomington, will be joining us on what is sure to be a wild journey. We are unbelievably excited to work with these incredible artists and share their work with you.
