Some of the best things in life happen spontaneously; like the inspiration for a song... or in this case, a record label.
Nola Blue Records was established in 2014 with the sole purpose of releasing Benny Turner's album of all-original music, "Journey." The project had stalled, but it had so much potential that I was inspired to figure out a way to get it produced and marketed worldwide. It wasn't long after airplay began and reviews started coming in that I was hooked. All of a sudden, I was planning the next release, and the one after that. As those projects were happening, the inspiration to grow my label evolved, too.
