Founded in Minnesota in 2002 by musician and producer John Wright, New Folk Records was developed as a bridge to bring the creative musicians John was working with and people who love good music.
In 2006 John invited Ken Onstad and Bob McMenoman to help grow his vision to greater heights. At that time, we began to look outside the folk and Celtic music scene and bring over artists of all genres that were gifted and needed a bigger audience.
In 2009 we were fortunate enough to sign a distribution deal with Music Video Distribution (MVD) for North America and beyond. MVD has been an amazing resource and support providing us to potential sell our artist’s music in nearly every record retailer in the country. This arrangement allows us the chance to work with artists around the world including Spain, England, Scotland and of course, North America. We continue to be fortunate to work with an amazing array of talent that we hope you discover and support. You can learn more about them by clicking over to the artist section of this site
Since 1986, MVD has been committed to serving artists and audiences. We’re in this business because we love great music and film. We’re big enough to make big things happen, yet small enough to quickly adapt to the changing needs of our partners.
