Dine Alone + Buzz Records announce partnership, unveil SXSW + CMW lineups

Dine Alone is pleased to announce our newly formed partnership with Toronto’s Buzz Records. To mark the announcement, we’re stoked to unveil the line-ups for our collaborative events at 2017’s SXSW and CMW. Featuring …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, recently Juno-nominated Weaves, Jimmy Eat World, Casper Skulls and Tokyo Police Club, the shows are indicative of the complimentary strengths of our respective rosters and represent the first of many planned collaborations between our organizations.  See below for full details of upcoming SXSW and CMW events.

This is a merger of two like-minded companies at different stages in their life cycles,” says Dine Alone founder Joel Carriere. “Both Buzz and Dine Alone bring unique and exciting opportunities to the table, allowing each company to tap into that collective success and ever growing resources. It’s a chance to assist each other as we grow our companies on a global scale, with the end result of creating more value for our artists.”

We were fans of Buzz bands before we got to know the people involved in the label,” adds Dine Alone’s VP Lisa Logutenkow. “Once we did, we quickly realized we were coming from the same place, and in the little time we have started working together, we’ve already seen our labels combine for 10 Juno nominations. It’s a really encouraging start that I think validates our belief in what we can accomplish together.

These sentiments are shared by Buzz Records co-founder Ian Chai, who feels the partnership will allow the label to further its central goal of fostering successful and sustainable careers for its artists.

Aside from a roster that we grew up admiring, it was the nuance of Dine Alone’s ethos that convinced us we had similar origins and motivations,” he says. “They’re a family and one that’s passionate about doing right by their artists; a mantra that mirrors our own. Being part of a collective that uncompromisingly blazed an independent trail from basements to stadiums can’t help but inspire everyone at Buzz. We’re excited about what the future holds for our family of sonic mutants.
