Hello & welcome! Nancy Kells/Spartan Jet-plex here!

Grimalkin Records is a music & zine collective & record label comprised of artists from all over the world to raise money and support social justice & civil rights organizations locally in Richmond, Virginia, USA & worldwide. https://grimalkinrecords.bandcamp.com/

We are a queer, women/woc & non-binary/non-gender conforming focused record label. We started the label in November 2016 as Friends For Equality with two music compilations and a zine and proceeds for those currently go to RAICES (raicestexas.org).

The label has since grown into a small cassette label and collective creating benefit releases to support musicians and civil rights & social justice non-profits & community organizations. Musicians choose what their releases support, and proceeds go to these organizations. A few collaborations that I am involved in that will be released on the label will go back into supporting the label to fund more releases. All of the proceeds from my Spartan Jet-Plex project also fund releases on Grimalkin Records (spartanjet-plex.bandcamp.com).

We decided to start this Patreon page to help us cover costs since proceeds from releases mainly go to musicians and civil rights and social justice organizations. We strive to grow & to be able to continue supporting more and more musicians & organizations, and I hope to one day to actually have funds to pay collective members for their support in addition to helping them do releases. At the moment, my ability to do so is extremely limited.
