Psychic Hotline is an artist-run recording company based in Durham, NC, founded by Amelia Meath & Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso alongside their longtime manager, Martin Anderson. Working with Secretly Distribution and Kris Chen (Nonesuch, XL, Domino), the company seeks to create new works and reissue classic albums from their ever-expanding musical community. Led by the artist perspective, Psychic Hotline’s aim is to make the process of creating and releasing albums accessible to those who make them-reflected in radically artist-forward dealmaking, creative support, and innovative marketing approaches.
We created Psychic Hotline to be the type of record company we had dreamed of. An artist led enterprise that strives to do right in radical ways by the creators who entrust us with their work; in the deals we make, the way we do business and the way we center the art and the artist. We do not seek to own intellectual property under any circumstance, nor do we subscribe to scarcity based career approaches. We strive to ever-expand our musical community; to welcome more voices and more perspectives. We believe that the only common denominator in great music is honesty in expression. It is in this spirit that we welcome you all to Psychic Hotline.
We are not accepting demos at this time.
