Dine Alone & Buzz Records partner up

Dine Alone and Buzz Records announce partnership

Today Dine Alone and Buzz Records are revealing the line ups for collaborative events at 2017’s SXSW and CMW to mark the announcement of their newly formed partnership. Featuring …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, the recently Juno-nominated Weaves, Jimmy Eat World, Casper Skulls and Tokyo Police Club.

“This is a merger of two like-minded companies at different stages in their life cycles,” says Dine Alone founder Joel Carriere. “Both Buzz and Dine Alone bring unique and exciting opportunities to the table, allowing each company to tap into that collective success and ever growing resources. It’s a chance to assist each other as we grow our companies on a global scale, with the end result of creating more value for our artists.”

“We were fans of Buzz bands before we got to know the people involved in the label,” adds Dine Alone’s VP Lisa Logutenkow. “Once we did, we quickly realized we were coming from the same place, and in the little time since we have started working together, we’ve already seen our labels combine for 10 Juno nominations. It’s a really encouraging start that I think validates our belief in what we can accomplish together.”

These sentiments are shared by Buzz Records co-founder Ian Chai, who feels the partnership will allow the label to further its central goal of fostering successful and sustainable careers for its artists.

”Aside from a roster that we grew up admiring, it was the nuance of Dine Alone’s ethos that convinced us we had similar origins and motivations,” he says. “They’re a family and one that’s passionate about doing right by their artists; a mantra that mirrors our own. Being part of a collective that uncompromisingly blazed an independent trail from basements to stadiums can’t help but inspire everyone at Buzz. We’re excited about what the future holds for our family of sonic mutants.”
