Planting Seeds Records began it's musical journey in the spring of 1998 as a vehicle to release our own original music from the variety of projects that we were involved with: Sunday Smoke Kit, Astropop 3, Xavier Pelleuf, etc. A collective of musicians: myself, Neil DelParto, and William Hickey, were the foundation of the label. While we had been making our own records for years (First releasing DIY cassette LP's in the late 1980's - which were almost exclusively passed around amongst our circle of friends) the advent of the Internet allowed us to expand, bringing our sounds to a larger, more visible scale. Although fame and riches would be nice, the ultimate motive for the label has always been our love of listening to and making music. We were and still are obsessive music fans and this ultimately influenced us to release records by a number of artists and friends whom we've truly admired. The aesthetic of Planting Seeds Records has always revolved around releasing timeless music that transcends genre. From folk to rock, country, or anywhere in between, Planting Seeds will continue to bring you the best in essential listening. Enjoy our continuing story.
