Dine Alone Records is known for being one of the more progressive and respected independent record labels and they are now announcing a brand new partnership with Hub Artist Services, aimed at further opening up the Australian and New Zealand markets on the back of their already impressive history Down Under.  

Having just celebrated their 10th anniversary, Dine Alone’s strong profile in Australia was most recently evident with the top 5 ARIA chart on the City And Colour album “If I Should Go Before You”. Dine Alone has already had an important cultural impact on Aussie audiences with artists such as Alexisonfire, Tokyo Police Club, Hey Rosetta and the aforementioned City And Colour, and around the world the label boasts signings such as The Dandy Warhols, Vanessa Carlton and Broncho. Hub Artist Services was also founded more than a decade ago, and the company has been a mainstay of the Australian scene nurturing careers for the likes of Megan Washington, Old Man River, Dappled Cities, Zeahorse and more recently Anna Of The North.

Effective immediately, Hub Artist Services will now represent the label in Australia and New Zealand and be involved in building opportunities and growing the Dine Alone brand. Dine Alone now boasts offices in Toronto, Montreal, Nashville, Los Angeles and Sydney.

Often unheralded, Dine Alone works hard to proactively support Australian music, having released albums in Canada and the US for the likes of  DZ Deathrays, The Jezabels, Miami Horror, Dune Rats, Children Collide and Hub’s very own Zeahorse. The partnership now gives Dine Alone a permanent presence in the Australian market with the first projects for the partnership in 2016 being album releases from The Dandy Warhols, Monster Truck, The Dirty Nil, Wintersleep and George Byrne as well as a full national tour from City And Colour who return to headline Bluesfest alongside Kendrick Lamar and The National.


Dine Alone Founder Joel Carriere said “Troy and I have a great circle of mutual friends and co-workers in many different countries.  It only made sense that we combined forces to grow our bands and businesses together.  Plus, I don’t know many people that can keep up with me when I am in the zone, so its nice to have this lovely gent by my side, hahaha” 

Hub Managing Director / Dine Alone Australia Troy Barrott: “Joel and I bonded over BBQ and beer, and a likeminded philosophy on independent music. His whole team is similarly brilliant. We have been talking for years about working more closely and bringing our culture, artists and people together in an interesting way. I’m honoured to be involved with such a well-loved and respected brand. We’re taking an old school approach of great people, working with great artists on a great label. This is going to be fun.”
