What We’re All About
Far too many bands and artists have gone unrecognized because either they couldn’t get the attention that they deserved from a label or couldn’t get enough money together to get their music recorded. Rest Easy Records was started as a way for artists to get high quality recordings done for an affordable price. From that simple idea Rest Easy has expanded to not only do studio and mobile recording but to branch out and help artists with promotion and distribution as well. Whatever you or your band needs we’ll be able to help you out.
While our main focus is on producing music we also work with a group of talented graphic/visual designers, photographers and cinematographers. Bringing together artists and creative minds of all sorts is another part of our mission.
Rest Easy Records was formed in the Bay Area towards the end of 2011. Its formation came from the result of the founder Erik Lehmer meeting Luke Kinney through a mutual friend during a recording session. Luke Kinney along with the band Easy Mash gave Erik the inspiration to get moving with the goal of forming a record label. With the help of some friends and some talented musicians Rest Easy Records came into its existence. In 2012 RER branched out into mobile recording, bringing the studio to the band.
A few weeks later in mid January Rest Easy Records released its first album with Luke Kinney. Luke would soon form a band called Something Collective spreading more positive vibes and even more great music, releasing an EP in December of 2012. Since then RER has been picking up speed, working with new and talented artists and the good times and the good tunes have just keep rolling.
The Rest Easy staff is comprised of a group of talented and dedicated audio engineers, scouts, artists and photographers who are focused on doing what they do best and having fun doing it. If you haven’t figured it out yet, were all about having fun. All of us share a love for music and enjoy being a part of it.
