Jade Tree Records had a reputation for signing emerging musicians that came to define the boundaries of emo, punk rock, post punk, screamo, hardcore and other iconic genres of late '90s and early '00s. They also brought together talented artists for a number of intriguing limited edition split EPs. This made their roster a hotbed for new collaborations and exchanges of ideas. To top it all off, they did this from the tiny state of Delaware, a state with no major cities or renown. Though the label has been a lot less active for a few years now, their impact on music cannot be ignored.
This special edition of Make More Noise just begins to scratch the surface of Jade Tree's extensive catalog. If you've never heard of this label, be prepared for an awesome education. And, if you're familiar, prepare yourself for a delightfully nostalgic walk down memory lane.
