It’s hard to believe we now have an intern in our office that is as old as Kelp is. We’ve grown from our meagre beginnings hawking cassette releases in Fredericton into a company that handles management, label, and other services for artists. Though a lot of hair has been lost along the way, our enthusiasm for music has not, and we feel lucky to be able to continue to do what we do.

 

We are celebrating this spring with 20th anniversary parties in Toronto & Ottawa and a few fun reissues too. Thanks for your support through the years & hope to see you out at the shows below!
