In Music We Trust is a music webzine, publicity company, and record label based in Portland, Oregon. It was established as a webzine in July 1997 by Alex Steininger and his friend Ryan O'Neill. Its original goal was to help promote work by new artists.[1] Steininger founded the website after losing his job at another online magazine, when he contacted O'Neill for his web design expertise and asked him for help. The website was named a "cool site" by the Open Directory Project.[2]

Record label[edit]

In 2001, Steininger started In Music We Trust Records; its first release was Sean Croghan's debut solo album. That year, the Willamette Week reported that "In just a few short years of music obsession, Steininger has transformed himself into a dynamo of Portland's music scene, releasing albums by local supremos Luther Russell, Sean Croghan and Joe Davis."[3] In 2004, the label released Matt Sharp's debut solo album, making it their biggest release to date at the time.[4]
