Fat Possum Records

Fat Possum was founded to record the handful of musicians today associated with the state’s northern hill country.  Their lives of violence, chance, charm, and luck, made for great music, and Fat Possum’s aim from the beginning was simple – to help the musicians live their last years with money, and to make sure their talent didn’t die unrecognized.  Fat Possum has stuck with it through the backlash of big labels, misinformed press, death, and failing health.  Today, the roster is increasingly filled by rock acts from all over the United States, including Andrew Bird, Dinosaur Jr, and The Black Keys.
