Welcome to the new Kiam Records blog.
Kiam Records was named after a saying my father used to have when I was growing up – “I am the Kiam!” – he would say. Which clearly meant, “I run this show.” He said it in such a way that was fun, and funny – yet kind of serious too. It stuck with me.
Kiam Records was initially, just a name and a p.o.box that I put on my first, self-released record to make it look more official. Seven years later, it’s a real label. Everything I have put out I am personally involved in and I like it this way. It feels important and lasting.
So, for this first post, the Kiam discography:
KRC01 Jennifer O’Connor – Jennifer O’Connor – 2002 -cd & mp3 – 1000 cd copies – cd almost out of print

KRC03 – Clint & Amy – 2007 – Ltd Ed Tour CDR – 100 copies – also almost out of print
