the heckabad mission

Heckabad Music is committed to bringing you music. We've been doing just that since 1992, when 4-track cassette recorders ruled and "roots music" was just a twinkle in her daddy's eye.  We'll never claim to have the next big thing, nor will we pressure you to buy any of the big things we might actually have. We are merely committed to bringing you music.

We are an independent record label. We are a collective of musicians. We produce music. We distribute music. We promote music. We love music.

We believe in the live performance. We pine for the relationship that existed between performer and audience before the advent of the phonograph or the wire or the wax or payola. We'd like to think that a snippet-in-time, stagnant, recording of music does not even come close to the mind-expanding experience that music could and should be. Hey, but albums are still pretty darn cool. 

We honor and cherish the marrying of words and music.  We never lose sight of the fact that lyrical song was born of ancient oral traditions of storytelling to pass down wisdom and history, and we try our best to nurture that tradition.

We shy from using genres to label our artists. Listen, and label them yourselves if you must. Our goal is poetry, the story, and an honest day's music. Our ongoing mission is to seek out brave new stuff, to go where few hipsters have gone before...


latest news:

Summer 2021!
Chris Doud's new solo project is finally available on all streaming platforms and hard copies are available in the store.
2 years in the making and finally finished during the great pandemic lockdown. 2-disc album! Disc 1 features Chris' new band, The Salvage Company: Ryan Coscia on drums and Jacob Canada on the bass. Disc 2 features a long list of talented musical guests that came by to help out on the tracks.

Spring 2021
Brooke Blanche of The Calamity Cubes stopped by to run his new album through the heckabad music machine studios. Looking forward to this awesome songwriter releasing the new album soon!

Shipping costs keep going up! (sad face) We've been trying to just eat the increases, especially on international orders, but can't afford to do it any longer. Just be forewarned, foreign purchasers especially. We'll try to throw in some extra goodies when we can to help ease the pain...

The 52 Week Club is still going strong. Heckabad is the proud host of the 52 Week Club; an international collective of songwriters bent on going insane. Membership requirements: try to write a song-a-week for one year. We have helped many of these artists record their music and continue to promote and rave about their accomplishments. Check out the 52 Week Club and also on Facebook: 52 Week Club Facebook Page
