SingSong Inc. is a Newfoundland recording company owned and operated by performing artist Jim Payne. It was started in 1989, and is dedicated to traditional and contemporary music, story, song and dance that reflect the Newfoundland experience. The label has 24 currently available titles, making it the largest traditional music label in the province.
SingSong Inc. also produces special event entertainment for conferences, conventions, corporate retreats, and other events with a particular interest in historical music related to Newfoundland and Labrador. For several years we produced a Music at the Museum summer concert series for museums in St. John's, Grand Bank and Grand Falls-Windsor, in conjunction with the Newfoundland Museum and the Historic Resources Division of the Department of Tourism and Culture. Over the years, SingSong Inc. has also been a sponsor of several regular performance events in St. John's, including the St. John's Folk Music Club, produced by the Folk Arts Society, and Wom/men Jammin'. In addition, we've also produced recorded music for use in the Parks Canada Ryan's Premises Historic Site in Bonavista, and co-produced recordings with the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Besides the recordings available from the website, SingSong Inc. has also released a CD-ROM collection of Newfoundland folk songs (included in the catalogue). Watch for other projects currently in development, including song and music books, DVDs, as well as new recordings on CD. All titles in the catalogue are also available by mail.
