Tooth & Nail Records is a record label founded by Brandon Ebel in California in 1993. The label later moved to Seattle, Washington, where it is situated today. Its first album distributed was Wish For Eden’s Pet the Fish, which was executive produced by Michael Knott and originally slated to be released by Blonde Vinyl. Although the label has distribution in the contemporary Christian music market, they have signed bands in the past with non-Christian members (Waking Ashland, The Juliana Theory, Craig’s Brother, Klank, and Frodus) and many of its bands do not cite themselves as Christian rock.

Tooth & Nail contains multiple sublabels, each catering to a different genre of music:

* BEC Recordings mostly includes artists in the mainstream sect of Christian rock such as Kutless and Jeremy Camp, with some exceptions (such as hip hop artists KJ-52 and Manafest, and nu metal band Falling Up).
* Solid State Records distributes metal and hardcore albums by artists such as Norma Jean and Underoath.
* Uprok Records was a Christian hip hop label that included many of the genre’s early successes, such as ILL Harmonics and KJ-52. It appears to be dissolved, though hip hop albums distributed by BEC Recordings still bear its logo (most recently Glory by Manafest).
* Plastiq Musiq (founded by Ronnie Martin of Joy Electric) primarily signs electronic music artists, with some exceptions such as Pilots vs. Aeroplanes. Plastiq Musiq has departed from the Tooth & Nail empire and is no longer owned nor operated by Martin.

    Old "T&N" music library was so much better. Best melodic metalcore bands of 90's, arguably.

    anyone who pays heed to T&N and not Neon Horse is out of his mind.
