What We Do

  • Record Label

    We release music for the bands on our roster as well as a series of local compilations highlighting the broad spectrum of incredible talent in this city. All in all we have 10 physical releases under our belt. You can listen/purchase them here.
  • Booking

    We book a series of "Cellar Door Presents" shows as well as local bands at venues like the Beachland, Grog Shop, HOB and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. We work with many festivals including Ingenuity Fest, Heights Music Hop and Brite Winter. More on booking here.

    We run a popular online Cleveland arts & culture magazine where our team of writers covers everything from local music, comedy, small business, film, theater to dance.
  • Promotion

    We handle all the marketing/PR/promo for all the bands on our roster. We've also partnered with other bands to help get their show or album release more visibility through both traditional and digital marketing means.
  • Management

    We currently manage four bands. For our roster we handle everything so they don't have to: all booking, marketing, promo, PR, social media, online and physical distro and more. You're in a band, you should be creating and making music, not worrying about writing a press release. More on management here.
  • Design

    We designed this site, and many others. All of our design work is done in house as well (except the amazing poster for Cellar Door Rendezvous!), all posters, postcards, graphics, and CD layouts are done by us.

Our Roster



    Ohio Sky is a heavy psych rock band. With Vinny's soaring vocals and Bambic's bombastic drums, Ohio Sky's sound will leave you breathless. More about the band here.


    The Commonwealth boast a moody sometimes dark building sound that brings to mind later era Radiohead with bluesy undertones. More about the band here.


    So Long, Albatross are a lock tight riffy trio. Known for their energy on stage, the band  has the heavy straight ahead punch of stoner rock but with a turned up level of frenzy. More about the band here.


    Midnight Passenger are a five piece rock band. With a knack for catchy melodies, this guitar heavy band creates an unpredictable blend of pop and heavy rock that stays with you for days. More about the band here.
