Signature Sounds

V/A - Golden Age: 25 Years of Signature Sounds (2XCD)


On January 29, 2021 Signature Sounds will release a double-album collection, celebrating 25 years as a record label. The 37-song compilation, Golden Age: 25 Years of Signature Sounds features Signature artists old and new like Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Chris Smither, Eilen Jewell, Lori McKenna, Heather Maloney, The Suitcase Junket, and Winterpills.

Label president Jim Olsen writes, 'To celebrate 25 unpredictable years as a record label, we've put together a 37-song collection. The approach was to make it a really good sounding album, rather than just the biggest hits. We wanted to make it a really nice listen all the way through and showcase the artists to their best effect.'

Described as 'The ultimate destination for independent-minded folk, Americana, roots and rock artists', Signature Sounds is based in Northampton, MA and has released over 175 albums of singer-songwriter, Americana, modern folk and rock music.
