Little Heart Records owner, Bryan Puckett, passes away

On Sunday, September 25th Bryan Puckett, 35 years old, owner of Little Heart Records passed away. Louisville, Kentucky based multi-genre label boasting of past and current bands such as Knocked Loose, Uh Huh Baby Yeah, On My Honor, Audiostrobelight, Skyscraper Stereo, Everyone Leaves, Kill Matilda, Crewneck, Street Rat and many more. With Little Heart, Puckett offered an artist-friendly structure comprised of open-ended contracts yet sound financial backing. For 11 years He lead a label of over 30 North American bands and with hundreds of releases. Little heart was built on the forgotten mindset that trust, honesty and love only comes back ten fold.

The label being named after his abnormally small heart he was born with. Puckett suffered from numerous ailments such as diabetes, stage 5 kidney failure, high blood pressure, etc. None of which stopped him from catering to bands and making cross country trips to make sure each merch order was fulfilled. With his limited time he offered uncompared opportunity, unforgettable humor and unmatchable loyalty.

Friends and family of all ages are welcome to pay their respects at the Cure Lounge on Saturday, October 8th at 7 p.m. as they take a second to trace back their favorite memories.

Approaching the 11th anniversary friends, family and label staff ensure that the anniversary show will go on to honor the label’s legacy. Again at the Cure Lounge Saturday, November 19th. Past and present bands will gather as the family he single-handedly formed. A night of live performances, a bouncy house and fun for all ages.

Both events are free of charge as Puckett would not have it any other way. Donations will be accepted at both events for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Puckett’s life should be celebrated knowing that good-hearted people willing to give their all for other’s dreams only come once in a great while. He shall be remembered always.

Mischief Brew releases official statement regarding the passing of singer Erik Petersen

Philadelphia folk-punk band Mischief Brew has confirmed and released an official statement on facebook regarding the tragic loss of their frontman Erik Petersen. What exactly happened is remaining a private matter between close friends and family but the facebook post did state that the band’s upcoming European tour has, not surprisingly, been cancelled and that Erik’s label, Fistolo Records, will carry on. Read the entire statement below.

I never got to meet Erik in person but we communicated quite a number of times over the years via email. As a huge fan of his music I was always struck by how incredibly humble and kind spirited a person he was and I remember how proud I was that he was willing to contribute an unreleased Mischief Brew track to the first comp I ever put out. For some reason I never expect somebody so talented to be so kind and gracious but he was exactly that. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say he and his music will be sorely missed.

Mischief Brew last released a compilation album Bacchanal ‘n’ Philadelphia in January through Square of Opposition Records. Their latest studio album was This Is Not For Children, which came out in June of 2015 via Alternative Tentacles.

We love you. Thank you to Toby Jeg and Brendan Kelly for their support through the years. Thank you to everyone involved at AF RECORDS.
