The Mylene Sheath


7 shouts


We are an independent record label based in Athens, GA, owned and run by yours truly, Joel Proper and Lindsay Palmer. With vital help from our teammates and the bands on the label, we’ve been able to dedicate ourselves to exposing as many people as possible to the artists that we share our admiration in and our respect for. The main goal is to do this without compromising any of ours, the bands, or your ethics and integrity.

In 2004, in Orlando, FL, our paths crossed while in school for audio engineering. We ended up being assigned to work together on a few projects and the gatherings and record listening sessions that took place in between those projects brought to light the fact that we shared the same dedication to music, life, and unity. Through that common ground, the initial ideas for The Mylene Sheath transpired and it became obvious that we would forgo the rat race of a career in audio engineering and follow our hearts instead. We wanted to do more to give something positve back to bands, their music, and an ‘industry’ that gave so much to us throughout our own lives. With some continued education in Entertainment Business and the love and support of family, we began the long process of preparing and planning our own ideas of a record label.

In last few months of 2006, we relocated to Cincinnati, OH, unpacked, settled in, watched Beneath Oblivion play at Top Cats (who ended up being our best buds and a vital part of the roster) and got busy on making The Mylene Sheath happen.
