Art of Life Records was created with the purpose of providing recording artists with the opportunity to create and record their music as they see fit without any undue pressures placed upon them via the typical major record label approach. Our goal is two-fold. Firstly, it's absolutely imperative that the recording artist have complete control over their musical output and be 100% satisfied with the final released product. To this end, we work with each and every artist on every detail of their release from the production, recording, audio mastering and graphic design of their album artwork to ensure that the music they've worked so hard to create remains intact and is preserved throughout the production and final release process. Our second objective is to provide our customers with the highest possible quality product that we can produce and to make this music easily available to anyone interested in our artists' musical output.

We invite you to become a patron of Art of Life Records for as little as $3 a month so that we may continue to bring you new album releases by new and upcoming artists in addition to reissuing long-lost out of print recordings.

We offer seven tiers of rewards starting at just $3 a month.  Rewards include items such as CD's, Digital Download Albums in WAV, FLAC or MP3 audio formats, CD/Digital Download Album Bundles, early notification and access to new releases before they are available on our web site and a monthly drawing for a free Digital Download album from our catalog of releases.

$3 Tier - Early access to new album releases.
$5 Tier - A chance to receive a free Digital Download album.
$10 Tier - One Digital Download album from our catalog.
$15 Tier - Any CD from our catalog of releases priced at $15 or less.
$20 Tier - CD/Digital Download album bundle.
$50 Tier - Any five (5) CD and/or Digital Download albums.
$100 Tier - Any ten (10) CD and/or Digital Download albums.

If you have any suggestions for albums that you think should be reissued on CD or as an Digital Download, please feel free to let us know and we will look into it.

Thank you for becoming a patron of Art of Life Records.
