We started the same way that a lot of other indie labels started: as a way to put out music that we love, by people we love. Grape Juice founders Nick Rush and Ian Tsan met in high school, but didn’t come up with the idea to start a label until they moved in to the same house in San Francisco. When Jai Henry visited Ian in San Francisco in 2004, it was only a matter of time before Nick approached Ian about releasing Jai’s music. And Grape Juice Records was born. We’ve continued in this spirit ever since, releasing music that we love by people we love: Curtis Evans, Musikanto, Jon Drake & The Shakes, Rambos and more – we’ve got a pretty great family.
