Mike Bentley, Jeff Brown, Shannon Slaughter, and Dale Felts are proud to announce the formation of a new record label, Union House Records focusing on bluegrass and acoustic music releases. The label will kick off with a soon to be released new single by Mike Bentley & Cumberland Gap Connection with the full album hitting stores later this year followed by a new album by Jeff Brown and Still Lonesome.
“Forming a label is a huge task, but I feel it’s the right thing for me at this point in my career. Being with a group of guys that have the same vision is both comforting and exciting. My hope for the future of Union House Records is to be a label that can bring this great music to folks for years to come,” said Brown.
Shannon Slaughter is already celebrating a successful album release. Never Just a Song by Shannon and Heather Slaughter includes the current #5 Bluegrass Today Monthly Top 20 hit “Moonshiner.” “I’m real excited to be a part of Union House Records! Each of the assembled owners brings a little different perspective to the label and that’s great. The guys involved here are really bright, hard-working folks and we all have a focused vision for Union House Records. We came together in a supportive coalition to provide an artist driven label to bluegrass music. Union House Records – By Artists, For Artists,” said Shannon. With a sensitive ear for timing, taste, and tone – Shannon, in addition to the other artist members of the label, will play a huge part in critiquing the material released from all current and future Union House Records artists.
Mike Bentley also has a keen ear and will be depended on, along with the other artist members, to help the label’s current roster put out great music and make sure Union House Records is extremely selective in additions to the label. Dale Felts will handle the copyrighting, publishing, royalty distribution and music licensing aspects for the company.
