Stanwood, WA – September 2011 – Van Conner announces the launch of a new record label titled Strange Earth Records. Strange Earth has partnered with the American wing of Germany’s Finetunes Digital Media Services.
Van’s new venture seeks to fill a gap in the Northwest Music Scene with the new label serving as a hub for independent bands that have dedicated their lives to making great music. The website will serve as a “one stop shop” for web surfers who want to find out who is lurking in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.
The label will feature online “singles” (featuring music and videos) that can be purchased through all the major online music shops (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, etc.) as well as EPs and full length records.
The first release will be by Microdot Gnome, the latest project by Gary Lee Conner, best known as a fellow Screaming Trees co-founder/guitar player/songwriter as well as Van’s brother.
