We are an independent record label with a difference;
Nurturing young artists, producers, engineers and music industry professionals
While giving back to those who need it most.
We have a new single OUT NOW!!! The song is called Seventeen, it was written by Josh Geoghegan, one of our brilliant up-and-coming singer-songwriters. The first of many tracks in his repertoire, Seventeen draws on indie sounds of the mid-1990s, like Mazzy Star and Elliott Smith, to create a lush soundscape for a song about the trials of young love. Keep an ear out for more Indie future classics from this talented young artist. Proceeds from this release will go to Dementia Research Australia.
Funded by the good folks at Lindisfarne School, Germinate Records will donate all income from this release to important cancer research (Cancer Council & Childrens Tumor Foundation) as well as towards helping more young people establish themselves in the music industry.
In her second release, Take You Anywhere, Chelsea Valarie layers lush vocals over serious grooves and wailing talkbox guitars in a song about a turning point in a relationship. Newcomer Ronan Green summons the pop-gods in his infectiously hooky tune In This Little Life. Jemma Mcnicoll’s ballad One Sided Love showcases her emotional range and vocal power in a stunning performance backed by whirring Hammond organ and piano. Jye Walker’s Emotions Attached is as energetic as it is brooding with thumping drums & driving piano in an incredibly mature first effort from this relatively new songwriter.
You would never guess that these songs were written and performed by such young artists, each song speaks for itself.
Throw Some Dice is our first ever release and music video. Written & performed by one of our incredible young artists, Chelsea Valarie,
