Signature Sounds Recordings

Signature Sounds Recordings is an independent record label specializing in singer-songwriter, Americana, and modern folk music. Jim Olsen and Mark Thayer founded the label in 1995 to promote the acoustic artists playing in the Northampton, Massachusetts music scene. The label has served as the career launching pad for several important singer-songwriters including Josh Ritter, Erin McKeown, Mary Gauthier & Lori Mckenna. Presently the label's catalog includes over 70 albums distributed in the U.S. by Koch Entertainment, in Canada by True North Records and throughout the U.K. and Europe by Rounder Europe. The label's main office is located in Whately, Massachusetts.

Thayer previously established the Signature Sounds Recording Studio in 1982. The studio in Pomfret, Connecticut has recorded numerous folk and jazz musicians including many of the Signature Sounds recordings.
