Stobie Sounds is a small not-for-profit community record label that was set up to help support the local roots music scene in our fair city of Adelaide, South Australia.
The label is run by a committee of three volunteers with the support of artists, musicians, studios and promoters who share a passion for roots music in Adelaide.
Our mode of producing albums is built around a simple, small scale DIY philosophy. The typical Stobie Sounds release is 50-100 copies. Album sleeves are made from recycled cardboard and hand-printed using traditional techniques. This system allows us to create small batches of delightfully hand-made albums at low cost. We put a premium on simple design and interesting liner notes.
Artists retain control over their artistic vision and retain all ownership of copyright in their recordings and compositions. Stobie Sounds takes some income from sales to cover costs and fund new projects.
No one in Stobie Sounds get paid but we all have a bloody good time.
Because Music isn’t a business it’s a fundamental form of human expression.

Anyway, I’d better run. If you’re keen to stay up-to-date with what we’re up to sign up to our newsletter (over on the right there somewhere…). We’ll try to keep things fresh and new with a few new posts a week.
