Founded in Chicago in 2000, Hi-Style Records focuses on American roots music that feeds the soul.
Jimmy Sutton, founder of Hi-Style Records (and bassist/partner in crime for the incomparable JD McPherson) has strived to stay true to the heart of this music and make his label a haven for those who cherish the rich tradition of roots music, and at the same time, break new ground.
Equipped with a world-class analog studio and a commitment to produce quality records that span conventional boundaries, Hi-Style Records strives to bring champions of the roots music underground to a wider audience. Hi-Style is always looking for new artists to work with, who have the passion and drive to make this music live and breathe in today's world.
Jimmy Sutton, along with Alex Hall, built the Hi-Style Studio to capture sound with all ribbon, tube, and dynamic microphones passed through tube mixers and preamps onto 1/4 inch tape.
