About

“The life I love is making music with my friends…”

Willie Nelson said it best.

I started New Scotland Records to release songs recorded with friends from my musical community in Nova Scotia and abroad. The majority of these records were produced at the Scotland Yard studio on 2″ analog tape with the aim of keeping it sonic and spontaneous. The artists released on NSR are an eclectic lot but what connects the dots are great songs.

You can buy these recordings online but the large staff here at New Scotland Records encourage you to order a physical copy to help fund the annual Christmas dance we throw at the Bayer’s Road Shopping Mall. Vinyl records are a fine way to enjoy music and they’re almost as indestructible as cockroaches. Lots of time went into making them rocking and rugged for the dusty Salvation Army stores of 2030. Hope you dig ’em, there’s more to come.
