...the eternal nature of art & song that comes through the hands & mouths of the mortal...
Thank you for your time & interest! Heathen Call is a boutique label specializing in handcrafted, limited edition releases by exceptional artists. By means of audio releases, written publications, & textile art we look to create & inspire ideas. Our aim is not world domination & commercial success but rather the creation of a cult following of like-minded people who see art & music as inspiration, and not commodity. Whenever possible we put a percentage of the earnings towards a charity of the artist's choice.
Please visit the Projects page for projects both past and current.
We do not sign bands, book tours, or run PR campaigns. There is a time & place for that kind of thing, it just ain't here. If you are a band or singer/songwriter looking for a label to sign to, I advise you to read this very well articulated essay by Rob Miller, co-owner of Bloodshot Records.
Heathen Call also facilitates the needs of artists & musicians by offering services in both audio & visual design. We are equipped with a modest, bare-bones audio recording studio that is comfortable, effective, & affordable. Our design studio offers services in screen printing, die cutting, embossing, etching, & a plethora of custom & conventional design solutions. Please visit the design & recording pages for more information on these services.
At Heathen Call we focus on albums & the album experience. At the artist's discretion, digital downloads of the album in its entirety will be available after all physical copies of the album are sold out.
Although we strive for & generally succeed in consistency, please keep in mind that Heathen Call releases are handcrafted endeavors. We would never send out something not up to our standards, but in some cases you will find slight variances from one copy of the album to the next. For example, when working with wood & dye there will be differences in dye lots & there is a chance that the copy you receive may have a slightly different hue than the one you see pictured on the website. Consider it part of the individual charm of your copy!
