Welcome to Estate Grown Records
We’re so glad you found your way here.
Please, spend some time looking around our site.
Here you will find news, our catalog, photos, Ric’s blog, and links to our friends. Unfortunately, we’re still not set up to download songs. We hope to install that feature soon.
EGR is an independent record label based in Sonoma County California.
Our name, Estate Grown, is reflective of the world-class grape growing region we call home.
We are pleased as Pinot to announce the release of two brand new EGR titles. We’ve been talkin’ up these releases for quite some time, so you should expect to hear an audible sigh of relief that they have finally seen the light of day.
First up, Amphora off reservation. This compilation of live recordings captures the band during their 2014-2015 tour of wineries in Sonoma County. An intoxicating mix of smooth jazz, surf, latin, be-bop and fusion. This title is offered FREE with any other Estate Grown purchase.
Secondly, we present the latest Ric album, Cauliflower. Ric offers one of his most personal albums to date. Most of the songs on this album are set in an intimate piano/vocal arrangement with minimal, sparse overdubs. In the grand Ric tradition, two tracks do feature friends lending their talents. “High Tension Wires” has Mark Brown on electric guitar. On “One For the Team”, Joe Chaplain and Bryan Paisley join Ric in a rousing, sports arena chant. This is Ric’s 16th album (third for Estate Grown), and we feel this is one of the strongest in his immense catalog, sure to bring listening pleasure for years to come.
Hope you are having a warm Autumn and best wishes for the holiday season. Here in Sonoma County, we are still reeling from the wildfires that caused horrendous destruction in October throughout Santa Rosa and the surrounding communities. Not a single person here was left unaffected by the fires. If you didn’t lose your home, you know dozens of people who did. In times like these, art and the endeavors of the creative soul have never been more vital. Sonoma Strong!
