Loose is the bastard son of Vinyl Junkie – a vinyl only label set up in 1994 by Tom Bridgewater. Loose is now Europe’s premier Americana and alt-country record label. Since 1998 we’ve released music by the likes of Giant Sand, M Ward, Hurray For The Riff Raff, Neko Case, Blanche, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Mark Mulcahy, The Felice Brothers, Dawes, Corb Lund, Sturgill Simpson and The Handsome Family. You can find a full list of all the artists we’ve worked with on our Artist Page. In 2014, we teamed up with Thirty Tigers in Nashville for our first ever US release.
