Do Not Release Records

The studio and the venue are tightly integrated,
 but can be booked separately or together.

The studio and the venue are tightly integrated, but can be booked separately or together.

The name started as a dark joke…

… referring to Tom’s sizable song catalog that has remained largely unfinished / unreleased for years. DNR was created to change all that.  Put out another album? Not these days. Now, we’ll produce one song at a time and they WILL BE released.

The Covid-forced transformation of Ground Floor from a studio AND event space to only a studio  created the opportunity to produce and release music like never before.

After the closure, the studio setup was improved again and again; some new gear happened… a bigger board, instruments were added.  Now, with this fast and self-contained studio at the ready, the catalog backlog becomes an asset.  Producing (and RE-producing), mixing, and mastering can now all be done in-house .  If inspired to rework a song written in 1996 – produce it – release it! If a great live recording is found in the archives – mix it – release it!  If part of the rock opera, Wings or None, is ready to share – release it!  When a great artists records live at  Ground Floor – release it!

 

DNR is here to “resuscitate” the neglected song catalog and to create new work too (already funny, yes?).  We’ll be releasing music quickly and constantly under the label, “Do Not Release” (even funnier, yes?). 

DNR will handle the previously released writing and publishing catalog, finish unreleased works-in-progress, create new material for the recorded-only rock opera, “Wings or None”, and produce others.

Check out these selections from the catalog!

DNR will deliver more from the catalog this year than ever. Most of these recordings will land on Spotify and iTunes, but some will be web-only and time-limited specials. Be sure to join our Shortlist to miss nothing.
