Ten Years of Greenleaf Music

Dave Douglas' company Greenleaf Music celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2015, kicking things off with a sale commemorating Mountain Passages, the label's first release, on January 25, 2005.

Greenleaf was started with the intent to make and distribute music in a different way, to provide a platform for Dave’s work as well as for artists he wants to showcase, and to create a community of like-minded fans to discover and enjoy the music. In ten years, Greenleaf Music has released over 40 different projects, including countless albums from Dave Douglas, as well as artists KneebodyDonny McCaslinMichael BatesNicole MitchellCurtis MacDonaldLinda OhMatt UleryRudy RoystonRiverside and Ryan Keberle.

Greenleaf is a family name that goes back at least four centuries. I wanted the label to have a sense of family, both in the way we treat recordings and in the way we deal with artists. You can sit around and gripe about the music industry ’til you’re blue in the face or you can do it yourself and act on what you believe in.
— Dave Douglas, 2005
