Our history, ethos…
Hobbledehoy is an independent record label now based in Adelaide, SA doing things a little differently. From day one, the focus has been on providing forward-thinking artists with a cooperative, hands-on, DIY-rooted method of getting their music heard. We proudly operate on a 50/50 profit sharing model with our roster, providing support in any way that we can — beyond just releasing records.
Founded in Melbourne by Tom Majerczak in 2006 while a student. Today Hobbledehoy is run together with wife Erin McCartney as a labour of love, alongside our day jobs. With additional help from our friend Carl Burnett.
Choosing to work with only a small group of artists allows us to focus on the finer details, affording the artist freedom and room to develop — on their own terms. By intentionally limiting our output to just a handful of new full-length releases each year, each release is ensured the full attention it deserves.
Hobbledehoy strives to be a bespoke home for artists as well as a link in the important networks we’ve all helped build together through music. Above all, doing it with integrity and as a united family, a close-knit community.
