Jade Tree International, Inc. is an independent record label formed by Darren Walters and Tim Owen in August 1991 in Wilmington, Delaware. The label is moving to Philadelphia in 2014.

History[edit]

Walters and Owen had both owned independent straight edge hardcore record labels, Hi-Impact Records and Axtion Packed Records respectively, before starting Jade Tree together in response to the then decline of the genre. Their new label started with many post-hardcore and noise rock bands, and later incorporated emo, punk, melodic hardcore, and experimental groups into their line-up.

Through college, they grew the label into a stable roster by 1995. Bands signed by Jade Tree have released albums which saw regular radio play, including Alkaline Trio, Pedro the Lion, Jets to Brazil, and Joan of Arc.
