Weathermaker Music is the record label owned by the American rock band Clutch and their manager Jack Flanagan. Weathermaker was formed in June of 2008 after Clutch experienced repeated issues with various major and independent record labels, resulting in band members Neil Fallon, Tim Sult, Dan Maines, & Jean-Paul Gaster creating their own record label. Weathermaker Music is mostly known to work with Clutch and their side project, the psychadelic jazz-rock alter ego The Bakerton Group. In 2012 Weathermaker signed and released product by The Company Band, and The Mob. Both groups include Weathermaker principal owners. In October of 2013 Weathermaker signed Deep Swell, featuring Clutch member Tim Sult on guitar. Their record, “Lore of the Angler” was released October 15th, 2013. Weathermaker signed the group “Lionize” in 2013 as well, and their release is scheduled for the first quarter of 2014. This signing marks the label’s first signing of an independent artist.
Weathermaker has signed distribution agreements with Sony/RED in North America, as well as international partnerships with Rough Trade Distribution in Europe, and MGM Distribution in Australia.
In April of 2012 Weathermaker hired on Stefan Koster to handle the label management responsibilities.
In 2013 Weathermaker hired Jon Freeman to handle publicity, and Gina Barrios to handle independent music placement.
