Ashmont Records

Show Summary

Ashmont Records was founded in 2000 by Joyce Linehan and Joe Pernice, two nice people from the Boston area who have worked together for a decade. They believe they met back in the 70's, having attended many of the same Catholic high school dances when they were students at Notre Dame Academy and Archbishop Williams High School respectively (always leaving room for the Holy Spirit of course). Joe and Joyce began their professional careers together when Joe was in the Scud Mountain Boys and Joyce worked for the record label to which they were signed. When Joyce left the label and Joe left the Scuds, they decided to forge ahead in an artist/manager relationship, and thus Joyce became the manager of the Pernice Brothers. After a bumpy ride with someone else's label, the two decided that ownership of the masters and control of their own destinies was the order of the day, and they started Ashmont Records. They did an exclusive distribution deal with the good folks at Redeye and lined up foreign licensing deals for the Pernices. Joe takes care of supplying the music, touring, and spending lots of time talking to journalists, while Joyce does the business from her quaint bungalow in the Peabody Square area of Dorchester, Massachusetts.
