First-Ever Preserve Records Label Showcase

Founded in early 2018, Preserve Records is a home-grown Chicago music family with roots leading back to the formation of folk-collective Friends of the Bog in 2016. As living room rehearsals led to a bedroom studio, more and more songwriters found their way into Friends of the Bog member Patrick Budde’s home.

What would soon become the Preserve Records family had started to take shape.

Studio expansion, a children’s musical, concert films, a baking show, and a collaborative holiday album, were among highlights enjoyed at The Preservatory in 2018.

Now, for the very first time, the Preserve Records roster will be sharing a bill at the Montrose Saloon, publicly cementing a musical community three years in the making.

KEEPERS: A Preserve Records Holiday Compilation

Wishing you all a restful holiday season.

This year, I set out to compile holiday offerings from some of my favorite musicians in Chicago, resulting in...

KEEPERS: A Preserve Records Holiday Compilation

Featured in the compilation:

- A riotous re-imagination of "The Bells of St. Mary's" from country/noise master Max Abner [Pontac]

- A somber Hanukkah tale from the minds of Matt Beard [Vender & The Cobras] & Gaby FeBland

-Dream-pop Joni Mitchell  [Beth Hyland provides the dream...I attempt to provide the pop.]

-A rockin' exploration of holiday malaise &  debut of a new project from Harrison Lott [To Do List]

-A simple story about a fella who just can't get his dates straight.

and more...

With warmth and well wishes for 2019,

Patrick
