Of the artist, by the artist, for the artist.
Flaming Tortuga is a label founded by artists and run by artists. We are dedicated to authentic country and roots music. We exist to promote our artists and our type of music. Our type of music has plenty of pedal steel and fiddle. Our artists know who they are and control their creativity. It's that simple. But you probably have questions, so let's do the damned FAQs.
I'm an artist. How do I submit to your label?
Well, Hello Artist! We pretty much have 2023 and 2024 already mapped out as far as yet to be announced artists and releases, but feel free to send your submissions (link to Soundcloud or Reverbnation...no downloads please) to our A&R department at AR@flamingtortugarecords.com. BUT before you do...Are you a smoking hot, drum loops programming Pop Country lover?? We probably ain't your turtles. Are you looking for a team to help mold you and manage every aspect of your career? You may want to knock on a different shell. Nothing personal, it's not you...it's us.
Why have I never heard of you before?
Why have we never heard of you? Maybe it's because we're relatively new. Mainly it's because you could ask that question when you meet anyone amazing and wonderful for the first time. But you don't, 'cause it's rude.
How can I learn more about your artists and their music?
You made it this far into our site and – OK, we're done here. Get off my lawn.
