In Music We Trust

In Music We Trust started out in July of 1997 as a vehicle in which to help expose talented artists to a larger audience. Well, here we are six years later: a label, a national publicity company, and an online magazine. How did we grow into such a mammoth corporation? Well, luckily we were able to secure funding from an investor when the dot com craze was still happening. With that fifteen million, we all bought ourselves big houses, fancy cars, and got a bunch of employees.

Unfortunately, after six months, the funds went away. We spent it all. We had to lay off 300 employees. We're back down to a handful of dedicated staff writers who do it for the love of music, including the amazing Ryan O'Neill behind everything technical, and our network consultant Jason Dietz. OK, so we never got funding, but the rest is true. Writers like Sonya Brown, Jett Black, Jeb Branin, Gary "Pig" Gold, Geoff Melton, Clint Darling, and Mikel Jollett -- without whom this would never have been possible – do it because they love music and they love what we can do as a collective.

As for the other portions of In Music We Trust... after doing the magazine for three years, I decided it was time to help out bands on another level. So, I started the publicity side of In Music We Trust. We've been lucky enough to work with such great artists as Helio Sequence, King Black Acid, Carrie Akre, Sam Densmore's Silverhawk, SPIV, Man of the Year, Orbiter, Bundle of Hiss, A.C. Cotton, Betty Already, Speer, Loveless and Goodnight Trail, Alien Crime Syndicate, and several other great bands.

With the publicity company in full swing, and the ability to scrap together every penny we could find, we decided to start a record label. Thus, the label side of In Music We Trust was born. Since then we've put out a bunch of great records in our 2-year existence as a label, including Matt Sharp (ex. Weezer, Rentals), The Maroons, The Damnwells, Suffrajett, Brady Brock, two records from I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch in the House, Sean Croghan, Freddy Trujillo, and many more!

We've got more releases coming soon, so stay tuned! The point of this is, In Music We Trust started out six years ago as a magazine that Ryan O'Neill and I did to cover great music and let others know of these bands we were blown away by. It has now grown into a PR company and a label, all out of the love of music. We may not have the funding that several other dot com companies have (or had), but we'll be here long after they all fold. As I like to say... IN MUSIC WE TRUST!
