Does Jade Tree accept demos?
Yes, we will accept demos digitally or via standard mail. If sending digitally, do not email us MP3s or other large attachments. Please try uploading a track to our Sound Cloud page:
Jade Tree Drop Box
If you send a demo, please do not ask us whether we got it, what we thought of it, when are we signing your band, etc. We will not be able to answer these questions as we have a very small staff and it is not feasible for us to track submissions. As always, the best advice we can give is - don't call us, we'll call you.

How can I get in contact with a band or a band member?
Visit the contacts section for all of our bands' contact information. Almost every current band has an email address. If there is not any contact info for the band, then the band is no longer on the label, have broken up, or do not wish to be contacted. Please don't ask us for info on specific people from bands either, as they would just as soon be left alone.
How does pre-ordering from Jade Tree work?
We will only accept pre-orders for the specified record on the stated date. Also, all pre-orders must be separate orders for that item and that item only. If you would like to order additional items before the ship date specified, please place a separate order. Otherwise all items will not ship until the pre-order ship date.
Any advice for starting a label?
The best advice we can give isn't even our own! We instead refer you to the comprehensive "An Introductory Mechanic's Guide to Putting Out Records, Cassettes, and CDs" by Kristin Thomson and Jenny Toomey (who spent years together as the Simple Machines label) which can be viewed at: Indie Center
Where can I purchase digital copies of Jade Tree music?
