Bottle Imp is about the love of sharing good music.
I started Bottle Imp in 2001 to share music I loved. In my youth, I sat around a turn table, listening to records, making mix tapes and hanging around record stores. Soon after high school, I started joining bands and helping promote local artists. Bottle Imp was created soon after I moved to Detroit and and was immersed into a much larger music culture. I wanted everyone in the world to hear all these amazing bands I ran into. At first, Bottle Imp was used to promote shows, then as we established footing, we started releasing albums as a record label. I released some of my own titles, then started sharing other acts. I publish reviews and playlists as well, because there is so much good music out there that people need to hear.
I’ve since moved to Arizona, but I still consider Detroit to be Bottle Imp’s home. I now work with and am inspired by artists all over the world and Bottle Imp’s goal is, and always will be, sharing amazing music we’ve found.
