    Since 1994, Bloodshot Records has championed music that lurks between genres; the good stuff nestled in the dark, nebulous cracks where punk, country, soul, pop, bluegrass, blues and rock mix and mingle and mutate. Bloodshot artists work over American roots forms with chains and velvet gloves with little regard for formality or protocol; they aren't afraid to molest and caress these forms to take music into uncharted and exciting waters. Bloodshot and it's artists share a punk/DIY ethic of expression. Bloodshot's artist roster includes: Bobby Bare Jr., Detroit Cobras, Scott H. Biram, The Bottle Rockets, Deadstring Brothers, Gore Gore Girls, Wayne Hancock, Graham Parker, The Silos, Waco Brothers, and Wee Hairy Beasties. From Bloodshot's shabby offices on a bleak stretch of the Northwest Side of Chicago, the label forges ahead in an environment hostile to the little guy, keeping its steel-toed boot on the throats of the forces responsible for the free fall decline of the contemporary music scene.

    Formed in 1990 originally under the name Mascot Records, and then Mascot-Provogue in 1999, the Mascot Label group has always maintained a dedication to integrity and success. After adapting the name, Mascot Label Group in 2010, the organization has been the umbrella label for the following four record companies: Mascot Rock label with artists like Volbeat, Gojira, Black Country Communion, Black Label Society, and even intergalactic superstar Bootsy Collins. Mascot Records is proud to have brought Volbeat to success from scratch starting in Europe. Thanks to several focused campaigns Mascot was able to achieve over 10 platinum and gold records. Their attendance at headlining shows went from under 100 to 10,000 people in just 3 years. Mascot=92s success was not limited to Europe, as we also brought them from infancy to over 100,000 records sold and over 500,000 tracks digital in America, selling well over 1,000,000 records in worldwide. In June 2012 we reached number 1 rock album chart entry in UK with our band Black Country Communion, as well as top chart positions in 10 European countries. Provogue Leading blues/rock label with Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Gov=92t Mule, Warren Haynes, Robben Ford, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Walter Trout, Jonny Lang, Leslie West and Robert Cray. Provogue prides itself on farm raising international blues icon, Joe Bonamassa from the ground up. Perhaps the most humbling tale of success is remembering that Joe had been playing for 50 people in London in 2007 only to turn around and sell out the Royal Albert Hall (5,000 capacity) in 6 minutes in 2009. Additionally, Bonamassa has collectively sold over 1,000,000 albums in Europe and charting the last 8 records in at least 10 countries. In May 2012 Joe Bonamassa latest studio album charted nr 2 in the overall album charts in the UK.
