Rune Grammofon is a record label dedicated to releasing work by the most adventurous and creative Norwegian artists and composers.

Being music enthusiasts almost to the point of absurdity, we don't want to limit ourselves to certain genres, as long as there's real heart and personality. With an increasing number of indifferent records bombarding the market place, we modestly aim to recapture the magic connected to the discovery of new artists and buying their records. Our aim is to put love and care into each release, giving it the best possible design and packaging. No plastic, ever. All releases come in the digipak format with exclusive design by brilliant designer Kim Hiorthøy.

Downloads and streaming
We have an ambivalent view on the matter of downloads and streaming. As much as we love the physical products and will continue to concentrate our efforts on making them as desirable as possible, we don´t want to exclude customers who want to obtain the music in digital "formats". Through our digital distributor The Orchard, most of our catalogue is available in digital form at all relevant outlets including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and Amazon. If you´re based in the UK, US or Germany it´s should also possible to buy selected albums as hi-res downloads from HDtracks. A small selection of our artists are also available on Bandcamp.

Contrary to popular belief, Rune Grammofon is practically a one man operation, meaning that ”we” have a very limited capacity. We have in the past tried to reply to most emails, but will not be able to continue doing that. Our demo and promo policies are as explained below.

We have limited resources when it comes to serving international media directly. Please contact your local distributor to establish a relation regarding Rune Grammofon. This is simply because it´s most practical and they know the local media situation. If this is a problem, please contact us and explain the situation. We can then put you on our international media list and serve you with promo links to the music as well as EPKs on request. Please note that we generally don´t have the capacity or the economy to serve you with promo CDs or LPs.

Current demo policy
We are currently not signing new artists or taking on new projects. Demo CDs, LPs, downloads and streams will not be listened to.
