08.26.01 Inland Emperor Records is open for business!

Today, Inland Emperor Records officially opens its online doors. The new record label created by Ben Harper will feature artists you might not have heard of before, but will definitely catch your ear. The label's first artist happens to be the Inland Empire's own, Patrick Brayer.
In addition to releasing a slew of independently released albums, Patrick played on three songs from the "The Will To Live" and has collaborated with Harper on numerous occasions. Moreover, Brayer's Starvation Cafe concert series helped open the world to Ben, where he played his first set of bottleneck blues. Please visit the new label at www.inlandemperor.com to download "Three Kinds of News", the first song from Inland Emperor Records' first release, the "Secret Hits of Patrick Brayer Volume Nine: Catholic and Western Fabuli." While you're there you'll find ordering information, more about Patrick Brayer and a special introduction from Ben Harper.
