About UsArtists


Making Music Together

Compadre Music Co. is dedicated to providing dedicated artist & music industry-related consulting services and project management. We pride ourselves on delivering tailored, positive, and honest strategies and blueprints for artists in the Americana, Alt Country and Roots Music genres.

“Everything essentially starts with the artist,” explains Adam Simon, who, as the founder and head of Compadre has worked to develop a home for Americana, alt country and roots artists in the same way legendary labels like Sun Records, Stax and Monument were home for so many iconic artists.

“We have hundreds of potential artists and amazing albums released each month that deserve to be heard” Simon says. “While we can’t work with all of them, I believe that if we start by finding those artists that are capable of being unique and alternative, together we will build something that people who love music will react to and engage with.”

Our Process

We Know Who You Are So We Can Help You Succeed

As part of the Compadre family, our team understands that a partnership with an artist isn’t all just business. It’s not just about creating the best tour, or releasing the number one album. Neither is it just about the music. ‘We Are Compadre’ is not only our creed, it’s our commitment to our artists, working so closely and on such a personal basis with artists that they really become involved in their clients lives…hence we use the word ‘family’ a lot when referring to our roster. And we truly believe that most problems can be solved over a bottle of red wine….or maybe two for some of life’s bigger problems.





The Compadre Music Co. team is dedicated to providing focused business management and producing opportunities for its family of artists. We ensure that there is a personal relationship between management and our artists, one that is born out of a reverence for resplendent music, then forming into a paramount level of commitment and respect for the business aspects of an artists’ creative career.

Compadre has the contacts, experience, and business insight required to help you navigate the music industry.
