  • Best Recording Companies for Native Music

    Hey kiddies!!

    I am working with some singers who want to get a tape or CD out. Northern. Who is the best company to contact to get their tape made, produced and distributed??

    Also, what companies are the best to record Native contemporary singing groups, like R&B, Country, Rock and the like.

    We have a few companies that we are considering working with, but I'd like to hear basically the ones you prefer and the ones to stay away from.

    Thanks.

    Hey Ace

    Glad to hear that there's going to be another group make a CD.

    I have a suggestion and I must tell you that I've never worked with them (Tree has) I've just purchased the tapes and Cd's they distribute. The company is called Sunshine Records out of Winnipeg Manitoba. (That's in Canada, eh)

    Some local boys from around where my family is from just put a CD out with this company (Slow Hand). Check out the website, probably have more info for you than me.

    Good luck!

          Great! Smokin Ace - I hope it goes the way you want it to go!

          Did you find them okay to deal with?

          They say "Friendly Manitoba" but I think it's "Friendly Sometimes Manitoba"! Hee Hee!

          Let me know how it turns out, okay?

                Thanks, Hola!! I appreciate that. Actually, I had heard some mighty good things from Arbor records, and when I sent them an e-mail a while back, they responded promptly. That was impressive!!

                    There is also Sweetgrass Records in Saskatchewan.... they've recorded quite a few drum groups....It's owned or managed by Ted Whitecalf. I think they're based in Saskatoon, Sk.

                      By far the best recording company is Indian House out of Taos, N.M. Tony Isaacs does the sweetest recordings of anyone. If you listen to them you will know what I am talking about. His albums are not distorted with all sorts of effects and synthesis. He records quality groups that dont need the "magic" of reverb and compression. After all, if youre not worth your weight in salt you shouldnt be recording anyway.

                      Now as for the next best...Canyon Records has some pretty good stuff out but also some crap as well.

                      Now in the running is Red Rock Music! Im sure you will be hearing more about this company over the next few months.

                      Sweetgrass is all right

                      Arbor....hmmmm...let me be quiet

                      Sunshine.....Worst professional recordings I own

                      Wachip and Turtle Island....same boat as Sunshine and its sinking.

                          Who has Red Rock ever recorded? Where are they based out of? As for Arbor they do have some of the freshest talent in their line up.

                            Hello All!! I am almost 17 years old and i know right much about music. I play guitar, bass guitar, i sing, and i even play a little bit of drums. Arista records would be a very good record company to be signed to. With Arista these young singers would get the recognition that they deserve with the Native American community and it would open new doors for their success and even put them in the public eye a little bit so maybe Native music could get to be mainstream. Wouldnt that be sweet if someone was driving down the road bumpin Native music instead of that too much bass rap crap?!?!?

                              Great advice everyone!! And Black Wolf it is my dream that one day, we all will be flooded with great music that just happens to be sung by Natives. That would be a glorious day.
