When was the label founded?
Bedroom Community label was founded in 2006.
Who were the founders of the label?
Valgeir Sigurðsson together with Ben Frost and Nico Muhly were the founders.
Why was the label founded?
The label is an outlet for their creative work and future collaborations.
Where does the name come from?
It’s a community of close-knit artists and it started as a low-key thing, so close to home.
Do you follow the Do It Yourself ethics? Other principles?
Yes, it’s all about quality music so not so much rushing things to stay on some release schedule. The home of the label, Greenhouse Studios, serves as a creative platform for our artists to write, record and produce music in-house.
Which artists do/did you sign? Only Icelandic musicians?
It’s very much about quality, not quantity. Even though we make an effort to actively listen to all demos we get sent, we usually focus our energy towards our current roster. We’re definitely an international label as only three of our artists are Icelandic residents.
Where do you release new items or make them available? Webshop? Gogoyoko? iTunes? Bandcamp? Spotify? …
We focus on our bandcamp webstore as a way for our followers to buy straight from the source, but through our distributor Kompakt we have our music available on most online platforms as well.
2014 is a very exciting year. We don’t want to ruin the surprise, but strongly recommend you watch us closely!
