Lemon Tree Records

Founding Date/Founder(s): 2014, Bobby Smith

Genre: Punk, Emo, Indie Rock. “We just try to focus on pumping up good people, we’re far more concerned about who the bands are as people than what their music sounds like.”

Artists/Bands: Currently feature Booze Radly, Always Tired, Ghost Music, Anna’s Anchor, and The Eastern Portrait. Will be working with Milpool, The Snipped, TV’s Norm, and God’s Green Apples in the near future.

Inspiration: “When I was first thinking about trying to do this for real I sent out emails to a bunch of labels that I looked up to,” says Smith. “Two responses to those emails were hugely impactful for me. One was from Mike Park of Asian Man Records just telling me to do it for the love of music and not really consider the financial aspect. The other was from the drummer for 82 percent of all PGH Punk bands, Timothy Little, of Between the Days Records. He gave me a ton of great advice and really showed me the ropes as much as you can in regards to the DIY spirit and how to professionally release music. It was a huge help!”
