DeSoto Records


1 shout

Founded in 1989, DeSoto Records is an American record label based in Washington, DC. Often associated with Dischord Records, the label was started by the band Edsel back in the early ’90s as a means of self-releasing their first 7 inch. When Jawbox got started, Kim Coletta asked the Edsel folks if she could use the DeSoto name for the first Jawbox single. Edsel agreed, and from there the label blossomed into what Kim called a “full-time labor of Love.”
