Host, Grant Lawrence of the Smugglers says:
“If your band was lucky enough to land on Lookout Records like ours did in the 1990s, it felt like winning the lottery. It was an incredible community of artists, bands, and friends. It didn’t end well, but there were some amazing times and some really, really great records while it lasted.”
