Rounder Records Moves to Nashville
Rounder Records, a division of Concord Music Group, has announced that it has completed its move from its longtime base in Boston, Massachusetts, to its new location in Nashville, Tennessee. With their diverse artist roster focusing on American roots music (including artists such as Alison Krauss, Steve Martin, Gregg Allman, Raffi, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Carlene Carter, Steep Canyon Rangers, Della Mae, and others), Rounder will be right at home in the Gulch, Nashville's popular shopping and entertainment district.
In addition to the move, Concord Music Group acquired the children's music label Music For Little People, which will operate under Rounder.
"In many ways, the move to Nashville feels like a natural transition," said Concord Music Group president and CEO Glen Barros in a press release. "The region's deeply rooted, artist friendly culture and its surrounding business community make it the ideal home for Rounder. Additionally, Music For Little People is a great label that will strengthen Rounder's commitment to quality entertainment for children. We couldn't be more excited about this next chapter in the company's incredible story."
Though the label has moved its home base, it will still maintain connections to Boston. Rounder Records founders Ken Irwin, Bill Nowlin, and Marian Leighton Levy will remain in the Boston area and continue produce and consult on various Rounder projects.
