Twin brothers from Amersham, Tristan and Danny Tipping are celebrating the sixth anniversary since they accidentally founded their own Americana record label.

Tristan and Danny, 42, have always been passionate about music. Danny tell me: “Music has always been part of our lives. Our parents were really into music and like a lot of people we grew up listening to their record collection. When we decided to take up playing music they were very supportive and helped us secure our first guitars.

“We played in bands throughout our teens and continued to play quite seriously into our mid-20s, then music took a bit of a back seat for a few years as we both had kids.

“We started playing regularly again around the time we set up Clubhouse Records and often join our acts on stage at festivals like Truck and Wood and other gigs. We like to keep our hand in, we’ve always loved playing music and that’s unlikely to change any time soon.”

The creation of their own label, however, was a far less decisive move. Tristan explains: “It actually happened by accident. We were excited by the small but growing number of British artists getting involved in the UK Americana scene and so we decided to put together a compilation record of the best acts we’d discovered, but had no plans to do more.

“When the record came out, other acts then began to send us demos and before we knew it we’d inadvertently started a record label.”

Danny adds: “We really haven’t looked back since we started the label in 2010 as its grown and gone from strength to strength. It’s been a juggling act at times but we’ve had a lot of fun along the way. What’s been really exciting is how we’ve extended our reach to sign some fantastic artists from the US.”

These artists include Cale Tyson, whose new album went straight into the top 30 of the UK Americana chart last week.

They are marking the anniversary with a performance by Nashville-based singer songwriter Don Gallardo, whose tracks have featured on the hit TV show Nashville. Also joining Don on the bill are fellow Americana acts Luke Tuchscherer and Loud Mountains.
