Passion Records

Founded in 2004 by Chris, Passion Records is a Boston based independent label that has released music by many artists including Nan Jing, Jonathan Keezing, Arielle Silver Band, David Horton and Chris's own releases.

The label has been quiet lately and the website is still a ten year old Flash site (buy Chris a beer sometime and he will tell you the whole story), but look for the label revitalized in the coming months.
