Sylvan Esso have started their own record label called Psychic Hotline. The label is based out of their hometown of Durham, NC, and is a collaborations between the band's Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn, as well as their manager Martin Anderson, in partnership with Secretly Distribution.
"We created Psychic Hotline to be the type of record company we had dreamed of," say Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn. "An artist-led enterprise that strives to do right in radical ways by the creators who entrust us with their work; in the deals we make, the way we do business and the way we center the art and the artist. We do not seek to own intellectual property under any circumstance, nor do we subscribe to scarcity-based career approaches. We strive to ever-expand our musical community; to welcome more voices and more perspectives. We believe that the only common denominator in great music is honesty in expression."
