Sally Jaye launched Cafe Rooster Records with a legendary guerrilla party at AmericanaFest 2016 in Nashville, TN. The cooperative record label began with friend and co-founder, Darrin Bradbury’s album, Elmwood Park, quickly adding a vinyl release of Jaye’s band, Ladies Gun Club, a vinyl re-issue of her solo album, Amarillo, and a digital release of fellow co-founder Brian Wright’s album, The Sneak Ups. Within the first year, Cafe Rooster also released their first two albums “outside” the family, Jon Latham’s acclaimed Lifers and a collaborative record, Strange Freedom: Songs of Love and Protest, to benefit Planned Parenthood. Keeping with the DIY ethos of the artists, the label promotes limited edition, hand-made art, rather than typical merch. With a revived touring schedule of her own (playing in Ojai, CA, and Los Angeles this week), Jaye may be the busiest record label executive in the business.
