Borne out of love and relentless record buying, Fair Weather Friends Records is an independent record label based somewhere between London (England) and Thessaloniki (Greece). Created by Yannis and Pospo, the focus has always been on music that has the potential to be both relevant and timeless, captured on the only medium that truly embodies the same qualities: vinyl.
Their first release from Austin jazz outfit, Epirus Quartet (read the raving review from allaboutjazz), helped establish Fair Weather Friends Records on the label map, but also instilled Yannis and Pospo with the confidence needed to carry on. Expanding in the vast land of electronica, the next release saw Tendts take over with their hypnotising data-laden riffs; the beginning of a strong, enduring relationship. In 2018, Fair Weather Friends welcomed Sworr. the musical collective from Athens; tripped out guitars, low-slung synths and deep spoken-word vocals, it was poetry captured on vinyl. 2020 saw the label make a return to its roots with the staggered release of raw recordings (no second takes, no overdubs) by One Off, the creative outlet for four of the most talented and technically sound jazz/blues musicians from Greece.
Despite the hardships, Fair Weather Friends Records ploughs on with the same vision: music we love on the format we adore.
