Fat Possum

Fat Possum Records is an acclaimed record label operating out of Oxford, Mississippi. Founded by Matthew Johnson and Peter Redvers-Lee in 1992, the label initially focused almost entirely on recording hitherto unknown Mississippi artists (typically from Oxford or Holly Springs, Mississippi), many of whom had never recorded before. As the label developed, it broadened its base of artists and began sign a range of younger bands such as the Heartless Bastards, Dax Riggs (formerly deadboy & the Elephantmen),The Black Keys and Andrew Bird.

Fat Possum has also begun to release more archival records, such as George Mitchell’s 1967 recordings of Furry Lewis, Mississippi Joe Callicott, R.L. Burnside and others, and recently acquired the original Townes Van Zandt studio masters and will be working with the Van Zandt estate to release additional live material.
