Secret Road Records was founded in 2016 with the signing of Arum Rae as a way to provide services outside of licensing and publishing to our growing roster. Working with a plethora of independent artists throughout the years gave us insight as to what an artist needs throughout a release cycle and beyond. In an effort to align ourselves with the growing models of small companies, we seek out the right partners to aid in marketing, distribution, PR and touring surrounding an artist’s release and campaign. We also put a strong focus on artist development as well. Our mission is to help tell an artist’s story and support their creative vision.

Indie soul singer and songwriter Arum Rae went from performing on any stage possible to touring with the likes of Gary Clark, Jr., Rodriguez, and B.B. King, and independently releasing her 2014 EP, Warranted Queen, which was acclaimed by Noisey, Spin, Paste, and more. Arum Rae released the Loners EP in 2016, which she produced in addition to performing most of the instruments. The exception from the EP is the first single, "Wasn't My Time," which was produced by Katalyst (Kanye West, X Ambassadors, Eminem). Between touring and writing new music, Arum most recently released Sub Rosa, an acoustic full-length featuring new music and re-imagined versions of previously released songs.

Born out of a mutual affinity for taking creative left turns, Luke Top (Fool's Gold) and Mindy Jones (Moby) embarked on a musical experiment inspired by the cinematic imagery of Michael Crichton's Westworld, Electropop, and Motown. The convergence of these interests saw the duo landing at a unique take on the modern pop recording; being simultaneously hazy and soulful, epic and intimate, dark and light. Mindy Jones' sultry and emotive vocals weave powerfully through Luke Top's distinctively arranged production style to spark something altogether strange and seductive. Their debut EP, Chameleon, was released on October 20th.
