“It was easy to make the decision to sign with Suburban Noize Records, as I was already familiar with their brand, hard work ethic, and understanding of today’s industry,” said Cool Nutz. “There aren’t many independent labels in today’s music business that take an old school approach to artist development like Suburban Noize, and it’s that approach that directly equate to long term artist success.   From retail placement, touring, merchandising, and overall artist marketing, Suburban Noize Records gets it.”
