10 Years of Mom + Pop
Our ambition for Mom + Pop has been and always will be to build a collaborative label with transparency and sincere respect for our artists’ creative controls. When we started in 2008, we opened up shop in Times Square at 49th and 7th across the street from the famous Brill building where so many classic hits were written. When it came to deciding a name for the label, I came up with 56 ideas, 55 of which were NY-centric, but we finally settled on Mom + Pop because it was the only one we could all agree on. In 2013 we moved to our current location off Madison Square Park. From then on, we marched forward with incredibly talented artists. To be able to continue working with these remarkable artists is our fortune. That said without you, who are we? Mom + Pop are unbelievably grateful for all of the music fans who have supported our artists and therefore our label. It’s music fans who keep us going and the lights on. We sincerely thank you for your support then and now.

It wouldn't be a proper celebration of over 10 years of independent music without a special record release. We have enlisted dozens of artists from the Mom + Pop family past and present to contribute to our most comprehensive release to date. The three-disc release includes brand new original and cover tracks recorded specially for this release alongside some favorite tunes from our catalog. The songs range from new releases, to covers, to deep cuts, and beyond showcasing not only the impact that our artists have had on the world but also on each other.
The compilation was released as a 3X LP plus a custom picture book for Record Store Day/Black Friday on November 23rd 2018. Find your local record store below to snag a copy. You can stream/download the album from wherever you get your music now.
To celebrate 10 years of Mom + Pop, we have reissued a number of our classic records on limited edition picture discs. The first three records were released in partnership with our friends organizing Record Store Day and were made available in independent record stores across the country on April 21, 2018. You can purchase them now on our special 10 year webstore. We will be releasing 6 more throughout the year, which you can pre-order now.
