SJ21 Records & Tapes is located in Asheville, North Carolina, a virtual hotbed of the acoustic and roots based recording industry with numerous recording studios, musicians, and record labels in the region. The label was founded by Steve Johnson to offer an alternative to other record labels that felt “too big, too corporate, or just not the “right fit” for artists”. SJ21 Records & Tapes is definitely a niche/boutique label. The label is not currently accepting unsolicited materials.
