VESTEN Records


Hi everyone,

We have some bittersweet news to share. After over a year of operation, we’ve decided to shut down the operations of the Label. As always, this was a truly difficult decision to make, but after deliberation, we really believe that this was the right decision for the two of us. It was an amazing run, and at its best it was exciting, and we feel like we were doing our best to put out music from artists that we truly believed in.

The reality of the situation is that it is untenable to run a business without the whole of one’s self invested in the project. It was a combination of things, but the largest was the faucet drip of income, measured against the cost of what we would need to invest in the business to push it beyond the tipping point. We’re confident that we did the best possible with the incredibly kind support of those who donated to help get us off the ground. After a year, and having spent at least as much of our own money on expenses necessary just for keeping operations going, we’ve decided to let it go.

Thank you so, so much to all of those who made this possible for as long as it was. We wish we could have kept it going, and are so proud of the work we did. We have careers of our own that have been neglected, and we’re so excited to be able to spend more time on those facets of our lives.
We hope you’ll keep up with us, and the many individuals we were privileged to work with on our other channels.

All the best,

Aedric Donovan
