Phil Circle founded Guilt By Association Records in 1994 to produce his own music. In 2018 he opened his label to other artists. Why did it take so long? He didn't want to take any money from the artists. Audience funding and patronage finally made this possible.
Now, by adding merchandise specific to the label and its' artists, GBA Records has created additional ways to fund artist development, distribution, and even production. Every penny that GBA artists make from sales and streaming of their music, they keep. They also own all of their music licenses and copyrights. Contracts are made with a handshake. Too good to be true? Nope. It's just the way it works when everybody is benefitting equally through a cooperative effort like Guilt By Association Records.
Your purchase in our GBA Records Official Store pays for the promotional needs of these artists, as they develop their careers through the coaching our label offers, along with the promotional work we do. In other words, the expense of running a record label is covered by Patrons and sales in this store.
Patrons of Guilt By Association Records receive 30% off all merchandise in the Official GBA Store.
