Signing up to speak with Nan Warshaw is highly recommended if you're interested in owning your own music label.

Nan Warshaw co-founded Bloodshot Records in 1994. Two decades and over 260 releases later, Nan continues to slog away at this scrappy indie label in order to work with bands she loves. Through Bloodshot, she is honored to have launched the careers of Ryan Adams, Neko Case, Old 97s, and Justin Townes Earle, and to have had an exceptionally prolific, hardworking role model in Jon Langford (Waco Brothers, Mekons) who taught by example so that she need not compromise her DIY punk ethics to work in the bowels of the music business. Today Nan’s excited to be working new releases by Lydia Loveless, Murder By Death, The Yawpers, Barrence Whitfield and The Savages, Banditos, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Cory Branan, and many more.
