Deep Elm Records


"DEEP ELM RECORDS is about the music that moves us, the outstanding bands that create it and our desire to make you aware of both. We see our label being about people coming together, meeting, singing and sharing that experience with each other...those are the times that we remember forever. It's about this power of music...and that's what music is all about. Music inspires. Founded on respect for music and the creative process, a do-it-together philosophy and undying integrity in everything we do, Deep Elm strives to further our strong reputation as one of the world's most reliable sources of quality independent recordings.

Beginning with the release of a seven inch record in 1996 and now with nearly ninety releases in our catalog, Deep Elm continues to build a better label - one that operates on principles other than the pursuit of earnings. Deep Elm frowns upon the politics that often plague our scene, choosing instead to focus exclusively on music."

excerpted from http://www.deepelm.com/about_content.html

Deep Elm is best known for their 10-volume series of compilations called the Emo Diaries, as well as being the starting place for such bands as Planes Mistaken For Stars, Brandtson, The Appleseed Cast, and The White Octave.
