Intrepid Records (Canada)

Intrepid Records (Canada)

Intrepid Records was a Canadian independent record label in the late 1980s and early 1990s. People associated with the label included founder Stuart Ravenhill and A&R rep Graham Stairs.

Artists who recorded for Intrepid included National Velvet, Rheostatics, Meryn Cadell, The Bookroom, Martha and the Muffins, Rail T.E.C., Stranger Than Fiction, Cottage Industry and KCC & Dance Speak.

The label was best known, however, for two tribute albums, the 1991 Bruce Cockburn tribute "Kick at the Darkness" featuring the Barenaked Ladies version of "Lovers In A Dangerous Time" and the 1992 Joni Mitchell tribute "Back to the Garden". The label also released the soundtrack album for Bruce McDonald's film Highway 61.

Intrepid was distributed through Capitol/EMI Canada.
