Nonesuch President Bob Hurwitz, Rhiannon Giddens and Timo Andres share stories about the label



‘An oasis of artistic excitement' Boston Globe
 
‘When a label is hot, you can buy almost any record on it and know you’re getting a guarantee of quality. Elektra had it in the ‘60s and Island in the early ‘70s. Today, without any hype or hoopla, Nonesuch Records has quietly taken up a similar position’ Uncut

‘America’s most idealistic record label whose ambitions lie in creating trends, not cloning them, whose dictum is, and always will be, that you can’t like what you don’t hear’ The Independent
