Best of Halifax

Best Independent Record Label

Dependent Music

For the third year in a row, you’ve named Dependent—the home of Jill Barber, Brian Borcherdt, Contrived, heavy meadows, Wintersleep and a slew of other local faves—as the Best Local Independent Record Label. “I think we just have a solid group of artists that release great records,” says Wintersleep’s Jud Haynes, who also handles some of the Dependent collective’s day-to-day operations. “The records we put out, we really believe in. There have only been 26 releases in 12 years—we’re taking our time.”

Runners-up: Divorce, Just Friends
