Very excited to announce Jude Brothers as both an official Gar Hole Records artist and our first employee!
Jude, who formerly performed under the moniker ppoacher ppoacher, is both an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and performer as well as a formidable community organizer and DIYer and we are incredibly lucky to have them on board. Jude’s going to be helping out at the office and future Gar Hole store front, as well as doing some project management and promotional work for several upcoming releases! Thanks buddy!
We look forward to releasing some new material from Jude later on this year. For now, please give a listen to Jude’s first record, “and the Concrete Dragonfly” (Matron Records), and go check out all their internet things!

Today is the one year anniversary of Gar Hole’s creation. We made a few bits of new label merchandise that are going up for sale today, which you can check out here.
When Nick and I started Gar Hole, we had almost no idea what we were doing. Nick’s profile as an artist and musician was exploding, and we knew that setting something up to support that increased demand was necessary. At the same time, the world felt like it was falling apart. Nick had left New Orleans and found his way back to Arkansas. My life, as I’m sure your’s was, had been flipped upside down. It was the obliteration of normalcy, and we all had to deal with it.
I would never claim that starting a record label in 2020 was any kind of radical act, but it was something that required hope. In a way, Gar Hole was our commitment to the future at a time when no one was really sure what it was going to look like. Regardless of how things play out, I’ll always be proud of that.
If you are reading this, then thank you what you’ve done to help us get this far. 2022 is looking pretty exciting and we hope to see you there.
