Record companies often get a bad rap for wringing every last cent out of their artists. Maximum Ames isn’t like that.

Maximum Ames is a record label out of Ames, Iowa. Started by three friends, the label is working hard to support music across the state. Nate Logsdon is one the founders. He sat down with Drew Finney to talk about the journey and the importance of DIY labels.

Check out this selection of tunes, released through the Maximum Ames label, featuring artists like Christopher the Conquered, The Lonelyhearts and Blues Pills.
