My name is Ryan Avery (they/them), I run Related Records. Related Records has been in operation since 2013. I release music on all forms of media. I put out music and art that I love and believe in. Every Related Records release is limited to less than 500 copies.
CAN I SELL / DISTRIBUTE RELATED RECORDS STUFF?
Yes please. Get in touch and I will send you a wholesale catalogue
WILL YOU LISTEN TO MY BANDS DEMO?
Always, but I can not guarantee I will get back to you. Honestly, most of the time I don't respond, but I do listen to everything and I do love hearing new and weird artists.
WILL YOU RELEASE MY BANDS MUSIC?
Probably not. But like I said before I do listen to everything and I do love hearing new and weird artists.
CAN I PLAY RELATED RECORDS MUSIC ON MY RADIO SHOW?
Yes, that would be great. Get in touch and let me know what you're interested in and I will make sure to get you something.
HOW DO I GET PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL?
Get in touch with me, if you want to promote Related Records in your store, zine, article....etc I am always down.
WILL YOU PURCHASE ADD SPACE IN MY MAGAZINE?
Most likely not, but it doesn't hurt to ask. It really depends on what sort of budget I have during that period of time.
WILL YOU BE A GUEST DJ FOR MY RADIO SHOW OR EVENT?
If I can swing it, I will do it. Get in touch.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR TAPES MADE?
National Audio Company. They are the best in the business, sometimes I have to special order shells or cases from other people but aside from a few tape releases, all of them have been through the National Audio Company.
WHERE IS MY ORDER?
I don't know dude I do all my mail ordering on Sunday and mail everything out on Monday or Tuesday morning. I also mail everything through USPS and include a tracking number with every order.
Do You Need An Intern?
Nope. This is a very small operation, please don't ask to intern. I will not respond.
WHEN IS THE NEXT COMPILATION?
To keep up to date on the free digital compilations we release 2-3 times a year. Sign up for the newsletter and follow on Instagram. These two resources are updated the most frequently.
WILL YOU BOOK A SHOW FOR MY BAND?
Honestly, probably not. but it never hurts to ask. I typically only book shows for touring artists I am already friends with or REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE and even then, only if I think I have the time, money and resources to make it a good show.
CAN I GET A DOWNLOAD CODE FOR SOMETHING?
If you ever bought something from Related Records I can send you a download code for it on bandcamp (with a few exceptions) just ask. All physical releases as of 2019 should come with a free download card in the packaging.
