Ken Rockwood has launched a record label.  Eight years after opening Rockwood Music Hall on Allen Street, the independent musician turned mentor to up-and-coming talent, tells the New York Times, the move “just seems like a natural progression.”

The first album by Brooklyn-based Dumpster Hunter was released online today by Rockwood Music Hall Recordings.  Up next: drummer Mark Guiliana and songwriter Robbie Gil.  Rockwood has become a favorite venue for audiences and musicians alike because it’s an intimate space with good acoustics.  Rockwood has earned a reputation for nurturing a wide range of artists and for creating an environment where they can pursue their musical passions.
