silver is a symbol of purity. Sterling Circle Records
strives to match this shining purity in the quality of music
we are producing, by trusting the talent and instincts of the
artists behind that music. We seek purity of sound by listening,
and by giving artists freedom to express themselves spontaneously.
The music comes out of the spirit and collaboration of the session,
with little post-production.
Circle is often used as a symbol of continuity. Within
that symbol are aspects of continuous change, but it is change
along a fixed path. That path is determined by our dedication
to bringing unique and creative musical experiences into the
world. Connected by that circle are the friends of Sterling Circle
Records: the artists and creators of music.
are Sterling Circle Records, the best in the combined
aspects of our name. We are all artists and musicians, creating
music as resilient and strong as the circle itself.
