Painted Sun Records

artist-owned independent record label

“I was renting this dimly lit room in a flat on third avenue in the almost always foggy Richmond District in San Francisco. That’s where I recorded my first album, “Not Afraid.” I had only one window and it opened on to a wind tunnel and gray wall of the house next door. I painted a sun on a big piece of white card stock and nailed it to the neighbors wall so I would see the sun when I looked out my window. And that’s how Painted Sun Records got it’s name.”
