Rounder Records

Rounder Records is one of the world's most historic Americana and bluegrass record labels. Along with respected label Sugar Hill, Nashville-based Rounder continues to raise the bar for high-quality roots-based music, with critically acclaimed offerings from iconic artists Gregg Allman, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Rush, Vince Gill’s Time Jumpers, as well as promising talents Sierra Hull, I’m With Her, Ruston Kelly, Pokey LaFarge, The SteelDrivers, and Susto, to name a few.

At the center of American roots music for over 40 years, Rounder Records was founded in 1970 and first struck musical gold with the 1975 release ofJ.D. Crowe & The New South (featuring future stars Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas and Tony Rice), this seminal recording revitalized bluegrass music and inspired a generation of artists including Rounder's own Alison Krauss, the most decorated female artist in the history of the GRAMMY® Awards. Her collaboration with Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant on the album Raising Sand emerged as a major critical success story. It’s been certified platinum and won five GRAMMY® Awards including Album and Record of the Year.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
