Each CD project is funded by the fans themselves and is paid back by the musicians with an additional 10% charitable return to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic. The musicians own their own work; Threadhead Records does not sign artists, nor are we involved in creative decisions or ownership of songs. We exist solely to help musicians get their CDs made. No more, no less.
Threadhead Records is a way for Louisiana-based musicians to continue to produce the music they crave to create and, in return, gives their fans the music they love to hear. It’s a truly wonderful partnership.
As of July 2008, several projects have been completed including Paul Sanchez’ Exit to Mystery Street, John Boutté’s Good Neighbor, and Glen David Andrews' Walking Through Heaven's Gate. New projects by Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs, Susan Cowsill, the New Orleans Nightcrawlers and the Marc Stone Band have been financed and are currently in the works.
Because of their strong attachment to the people and culture of New Orleans, this marvelous group continues to support these projects, helping to ensure the heart of their beloved New Orleans continues to beat.
