Razor & Tie is a New York based corporation founded in 1993 by Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam. The company encompasses a record label with major label distribution, publishing, a home video company, a media buying company, an experienced marketing, promotion and sales team, a direct marketing operation and a growing database of entertainment consumers.

Early in their existence, the label concentrated on “greatest hits” compilations by otherwise unanthologized artists (Ivory Joe Hunter, Jules Shear, et al.). Razor & Tie is perhaps best known for its Kidz Bop compilations, which take the latest pop hits and rework them as sung by children. Other products include albums by Dar Williams, The Clarks, Danko Jones, All That Remains, 40 Below Summer, Brand New, Steve Hofstetter, Seven Nations, Sonia Dada, John Lithgow and Kelly Sweet (forthcoming), and videos such as the Sweating in the Spirit workout series and various DVD reincarnations of the For Dummies series.
