Silkheart Records is a Swedish record company and label dedicated to improvised music and free jazz.

Lars-Olof Gustavsson and Keith Knox founded Silkheart in 1985. In 1991, Jimmy Johnson of Forced Exposure suggested that Silkheart "could easily be considered for the new ESP-Disk throne."[1] The Penguin Guide to Jazz describes the four albums that Dennis González recorded for the label as "part of a determined effort to wrest creative initiative back from New York and the West Coast".[2]:513–514 Charles Brackeen (whom Silkheart's management[3] and González[2]:513–514 had coaxed out of retirement) recorded three albums for Silkheart.[2]:159
