Folktale Records


Folktale Records features artists such as Gowns, Anni Rossi, French Quartet, Brother Mitya and many more. Every recording and artist on this label is different-- sometimes shockingly so. Not to mention everything is made by hand, be it a cassette, LP or CD. 
Christopher Payne "Whitman" started making music in 2002. His label was inspired by the former DIY label Nightpass Handmade Records which was started by John Thill, another artist who is featured on Folktale.  
Stick to the DIY mentality, it may not be easy to get hold of these magnificent recordings... "I wanted to start a label to help release and distribute music I like that other people might not get a chance to hear otherwise." -Chirstopher Payne.
