Does Jade Tree accept demos?
Yes, we will accept demos digitally or via standard mail. If sending digitally, do not email us MP3s or other large attachments. Please try uploading a track to our Sound Cloud page:
Jade Tree Drop Box
If you send a demo, please do not ask us whether we got it, what we thought of it, when are we signing your band, etc. We will not be able to answer these questions as we have a very small staff and it is not feasible for us to track submissions. As always, the best advice we can give is - don't call us, we'll call you.
Who distributes merchandise for Jade Tree bands?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on getting these items wholesale.
When is (insert Jade Tree band) going to come play in my hometown?
When we have confirmed show dates they are posted under the Tours section. If it is not listed there, then we don't know about the show or tour, or it is not happening.
What are the measurements of your shirts?
The shirts we use are usually the same blend (100% cotton), but we get them from a variety of manufacturers, so the measurements might differ slightly. Therefore, we go by the usual standards: Youth Medium, Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large. You should know which one of these fits you, if not, you have more important things to worry about!
Any advice for starting a label?
The best advice we can give isn't even our own! We instead refer you to the comprehensive "An Introductory Mechanic's Guide to Putting Out Records, Cassettes, and CDs" by Kristin Thomson and Jenny Toomey (who spent years together as the Simple Machines label) which can be viewed at: Indie Center
