“These are hands-down my favorite songwriters, poets and musicians on the face of the earth,” says Coombs. “The fact that we get to keep them as part of the team is really beautiful.”
The news arrives days after the label group swept the 2021 Libera Awards, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary and is presented by the American Association of Independent Music. Secretly — which last June announced a new partnership with Ghostly International, a smaller New York-based label formed two decades ago — was nominated for 19 honors across six companies and a dozen artists, with’ Punisher (Dead Oceans) winning record of the year.

“All of the conversations felt like two partners approaching one another, having very open and honest conversations about the past, but also really focused on the future,” he continues. “Just being able to have that dialogue with your artists, it’s very meaningful. I think just the conversations themselves are indicative of how much trust there is in both parties.”
Some of those conversations started before lockdown, at the top of 2020, and were later closed over Zoom. But now, Coombs says, as live music returns (on June 20, Foo Fighters reopened Madison Square Garden with the first full-capacity, fully-vaccinated show in over a year) he’s eager to see the label group’s artist partners back on stage.
“I’m going to get to see a handful of our artists play shows here soon enough,” he says. “Everyone is working on [new] music right now, too, so there’s going to be plenty of opportunity to celebrate.”
