Anyway Records is an independent record label based in Columbus, Ohio, which specializes in a Columbus brand of indie rock. It was established in 1991 by Bela Koe-Krompecher, called an "indie stalwart" by Entertainment Weekly.[1]

During the 1990s, the label was considered the most well-known and prolific label in Columbus.[2] The Other Paper called Anyway Records "arguably the most influential indie label in Columbus throughout the last half of the ‘90s."[3] The early 2000s saw a reduction in offerings. However, since 2007, the label has put out records by The Whiles, The Kyle Sowashes, Moviola, and The Lindsay.[4] "Song for Jerry", off of The Whiles album Colors of the Year, appeared on the documentary Murderball.[5] The Whiles album Sleepers Wake was referred to by Columbus Alive as a "masterpiece."[6]

Past releases have included notable artists such as Guided by Voices, the Ass Ponys, the New Bomb Turks, and Jenny Mae.[2]
