From the Making It With Chris G podcast:
“For the past 20 Years, Basin Street Records has brought the sounds of New Orleans to the world. In this episode it’s founder and owner, Mark Samuels, shares his journey, stories, and lessons of running an independent record label. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did!”
On the 20th anniversary of our first recording, Billboard takes a look at our first 20 years. The inception, the hurdles, and the future.
