    Brassland is an artist-operated label started in 2001 by Alec Hanley Bemis and twin brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner. We began with a pair of debuts by Clogs & The National, but our goal was to develop a community of creative folk, and the family has grown to include work by Nico Muhly, Buke & Gass, and Doveman among others. We like music that transcends genre. We encourage collaboration and creation among an evolving community of creative folks. We like musicians who play well and possess the elusive tonic of personality.
