first indie labels owned by a rock artist and the first indie owned by a
woman. The label began when 28 labels rejected Jett, before her release of
"I Love Rock and Roll". Jett and her long time song writing partner and
producer, Kenny Laguna starting pressing their own records and selling
them out of the trunk of their car. After 25 years, Blackheart is still
true to it's indie spirit. Roster includes Joan Jett and the Blackhearts,
