Six Shooter Records is an independent record label based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that uses an artist-centric business model, focussing on art before commerce combined with extensive touring. Six Shooter Records was founded in 2000 by Shauna de Cartier.[1] The mission statement of the company is, Life is Too Short to Listen to Shitty Music.

In addition to production and sales of music, the company is involved in artist management, festival production, concert promotion and song publishing. The management arm of the company is run by de Cartier and partner Helen Britton. In 2014, Sara Stasiuk joined the company as Director of Operations to oversee operations of the label and the company’s festival expansion.[2] Notable festivals include the Interstellar Rodeo (Edmonton and Winnipeg) and the Sleepwalker Guitar Festival (Toronto).[1]

Several releases on Six Shooter Records have received awards and critical acclaim from music critics, including music from Canadian folk rock band Whitehorse, Canadian folk/country harmony trio The Good Lovelies and Canadian Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq.

Six Shooter Records is distributed by Warner Music Canada in Canada, by Alternative Distribution Alliance in the USA and by ADA Global outside of North America.
