10 Years

Secret City Records is a Montreal-based record label originally founded in 2006 to release Patrick Watson’s album, Close to Paradise. Nobody ever thought that, after a decade, we would have released more than 35 projects across 13 artists. We keep the roster small and focused, believing that attention to detail and a career-oriented approach will yield the best long-term results; we support the idea of a self-reinforcing community, where everyone helps each other grow; and we think globally, ensuring that as many people from all over the world can discover and have access to our artists’ music. You will find that we are not limited by genre or format, nor by conventional thinking; that we strive to be fair, transparent, and humble; and that we’re always evolving and building. Our mission is to be a bridge between art and commerce, with unqualified respect and support for the artists’ vision.
