When you hear the name Cloud Nine Records, one word should pop into your head; diversity. In the competitive independent label scene and underground music industry, it is difficult to be different, but Cloud Nine has no problem overcoming this task. Coming from New Jersey, a state which makes an extensive impact in the underground music scene, Cloud Nine is an independent label based with numerous different genres, making it an eclectic label. Formed in March 2005, by a couple of friends and brothers who share passionate love for music, they have already established a mission statement attributing to release music that isn't getting the attention it deserves. Most importantly, this label makes it a point to have fun doing it. Giving independent artists a solid ground to develop themselves is what gravitated the first bands to join the Cloud Nine family, Burn the Tyrant and Gray Lines of Perfection, and the newest addition to the Cloud Nine family, A Means to a Fall. Since then, this label is on high gear, rapidly growing, and soon to make its name in the music industry. You can catch Cloud Nine artists on tour every weekend, on college and local radio stations, and even in most record stores.
