BEST LOCALLY BASED LABEL

New Granada Records

New Granada owner Keith Ulrey and wife Susie have not only cultivated an artist roster that features some of the area’s most promising break-out talent, they've extended their label’s reach beyond our town to encompass high-quality regional and national talent as well. This past year has seen one notable triumph after another: the label signed Seattle-based singer-songwriter Jen Wood and played a critical role in the nationwide release of her 2010 album, Finds You In Love; produced two excellent 2011 albums, A Cautionary Tale by The Pauses and Sleepy Vikings’ They Will Find You Here, and organized support tours for both; hosted its second official showcase at SXSW; and most recently, added two more artists to the talent pool, Jacksonville psyche-pop outfit Sunbears! and local roots-pop act, Alexander & the Grapes.
