Blue Barrel Records Releases First Album
Blue Barrel Records, a Memphis-based record label, will release its first album, Mighty Souls Brass Band’s Lift Up!

Label activities are administered by Archer Records (label home of Kilzer, Amy LaVere, Lily Afshar and more). Initial plans dictate that the label will work with two new artists per year, producing an album and funding all pressing, distribution and marketing activities around the release of that record.
