    Got a question or feeling lonely?: grace@frenchkissrecords.com


    Frenchkiss Records was founded by Syd Butler, Les Savy Fav bassist, in 1999. We are a record label (Frenchkiss Label Group is not a record label, but a distributor for small record labels. Don't get it twisted.)

    General Inquiries: general@frenchkisslabelgroup.com

    Frenchkiss Label Group is a hands-on boutique distributor, focused on growing visibility for independent labels as the bottom line. In the spirit of communities like Dischord, Rough Trade, Touch & Go, et al., FKLG will serve to nurture newer labels as they become industry mainstays. Created in Syd Butler’s image, with day to day operations run by Orchard alum, Deana Cosper, our goal is to create a community that can encourage and support one another. We hand pick labels who reflect the integrity of Frenchkiss and aim to expand upon this ethos. Since we’ve partnered with The Orchard, we can attest that we’re working with the best talent around when it comes to delivering and streamlining distribution and adopting new platforms for music. We’re striving to recreate the handshake mentality of pioneered label communities while using the Orchard’s innovative methods, in order to be the best resource for those looking to grow with us.
