In 2009, following a successful SXSW, the timing seemed right to start a record label. As Los Lonely Boys were coming off their deal with Epic, and various other management clients had albums looking for a home, it just made sense to create the label. And thus, Playing In Traffic Records came into being! Artists signed to the Playing In Traffic label are: Los Lonely Boys, SPEAK, The Dunwells, Girl Pilot (aka Sahara Smith) and Michelle Armstrong. As Kevin states, “It really seemed like a natural progression to continue to provide services to our artists, and give them a creative outlet for their music.” Playing In Traffic Records is distributed by RED, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.
Our motto is: to embrace a self-starting ingenuity, and offer our artists a variety of services in a creative and nurturing music haven where they can grow and flourish.
With all the traffic/congestion in today’s music industry, we strive to clear a path for our artists. We hope you enjoy driving around our site and checking them out!
