About Us

Secret City Records is a young Montreal-based independent record label and publishing company. It was founded with the knowledge that records are changing, and with a desire to embrace their future while preserving the idea of the "label" as a source of music you (and the artists it houses) can trust. We don't believe in genres, only innovation and inspiration. We're excited about the endless possibilities that new media have for music and its dissemination, but we're also still committed to the physical album as collectible artifact; we believe each album's packaging should be as much a work of art as the music it represents. We like vinyl.

Our logo is an obvious nod to the urban element in our name; we believe in the cultural wealth of the "city", but also think that the notion of the city is changing as much as that of the record. Their boundaries are becoming less tangible, more fluid. But they can still be built. So the logo is also more than a building. Or less. It's the beginnings of one. As a façade, it's also an affront to the posturing and empty branding behind so much of the music industry — fixated on fabricating fleeting tastes...rather than supporting or helping document sounds that will endure — which is what we think a record label these days should do.

If you want to send us something because you'd like us to release your music, or just because you like us, you can do so using the address below. But please keep in mind that usually the best thing for an artist to do is to play shows, record and self-release music, and build a reputation to the point where we'll be coming to you (or will at least be familiar with you when you come to us). Sounds silly, we know, but that's usually how it goes. That said, if you're a completely unknown genius and want to send us some mind-blowing music, who are we to say no? If you are going to send us something though, please don't be too wasteful and send us big glossy photos, twenty page press kits, and the like. A CD with one page of info and contact information will do. You should see some of the shit we get sometimes...

Much love from the 514,
