Jericho Beach Music was formed in 1997 with the release of ‘Compadres’; a truly Canadian
collaboration between singer/songwriter James Keelaghan and Latino guitarist Oscar Lopez.
The label was named for Vancouver’s stunning Jericho Beach, site of the annual summer folk
music festival where musicians from all over the world gather for an eclectic and inspiring
weekend of music. Releases from Jericho Beach Music reflect the diversity of musical style
and culture that thrives in our East Vancouver neighbourhood and around the world. Jericho
Beach Music is committed to ensuring effective promotion, production and administration
together with giving independent musicians artistic freedom.
