About Steamy Attic Records:
Q: What is Steamy Attic Records?
A: Steamy Attic Records is a homegrown independent
record label based in Hampton VA. The name is derived from
an attic turned recording studio in a rental home that often
reached temperatures of 110 F even with the window AC unit
running. Although the rental home was left behind several
years ago, the name stuck and Steamy Attic Records lives on.
Q: What kind of music does the label release?
A: So far, all releases have been productions
that the label's one-man operator, Matt, has been involved
with in some way or another. These include current bands or
projects of Matt's, friends' projects, and past self-releases
that were previously only available on cassette tape.
Q: Are you looking to sign other bands?
A: Not necessarily, but not necessarily not.
At this point in the label's evolution, the funding is not
available to provide proper money for several releases from
other artists. That being said, just because there is no contract
or "signing" per say, Steamy Attic is adamant about
promoting and developing the original music scene in Hampton
Roads Virginia, and would be more than willing to do what
it can to help other bands out, including providing a place
for original local artists to sell their music and gain everyone
involved a wider fan base.
What I CAN do to help other bands out is to sell their music
on this site. That hasn't happened so far but if you'e like
to make a gentleman's agreement I am not looking to make money
off of you... just helping to build an original music community.
Either way, we're ALWAYS happy to listen to new music. If
you want to share your music with us for any reason at all,
find details on how to holler at us on the contact
Q: Is Steamy Attic Records still a Recording Studio?
A: Yes. Matt has a sound-treated project
studio in his home. He uses this space and equipment to record
and mix all of his projects. He has occasionally recorded
other bands but is not interested in opening the studio for
If you have a project that you are interested in recording
at the Steamy Attic, let me know,
but know that we can't promise anything and would handle availability
and compensation on a case-by-case basis.
