SCI Fidelity Records 15th Anniversary Sampler - Now Available
In celebration of its 15th anniversary, SCI Fidelity Records has compiled a 30-track retrospective label compilation, available now for free stream via SoundCloud and for free download only at the SCI Fidelity online store.
Formed by The String Cheese Incident in 1998, SCI Fidelity has delivered on its mission to support independent musicians everywhere – releasing over 100 albums from SCI and their side projects, along with artists like Keller Williams, Umphrey’s McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Steve Winwood, Lotus, Railroad Earth, The Greyboy Allstars, Tea Leaf Green and many more.
SCI Fidelity’s 15th anniversary compilation contains thirty of the best songs from some of the label’s most acclaimed albums over the years, and the tracks are listed in chronological order, taking the listener on a journey from the label’s first official release, The String Cheese Incident’s “Round The Wheel”, through their latest batch of releases from The Infamous Stringdusters and Lotus.
Here’s what the label’s founders, The String Cheese Incident, had to say about this momentous occasion:
Happy 15th Anniversary SCI Fidelity! It all began back in the late nineties as a crazy idea to buck the system and “do it ourselves.” After talking to some major labels and other touring bands, we decided it was important to maintain control of our own destiny by starting our own label. We felt this would be the best way to ensure creative freedom, and to not be bound to an album release or touring schedule dictated by a recording contract. Along the way, we were able to build a strong roster of label-mates, including some of our best friends and contemporaries. We feel incredibly fortunate to be able to support music we believe in, and to sustain the record label in today’s ever-evolving music industry landscape. Thanks to all who have supported SCI Fidelity and its artists.We couldn’t have – and wouldn’t have – done it without you. Cheers to the next 15! - SCI
