// about us
Worldhaus Music is an independent music company based in Austin, Texas with offices in Los Angeles (US), London (UK) and Porto Alegre (Brazil), that represents the global connection that international roots music has around the world with 36 years of experience. With multi-lingual recording artists on the roster, young talent and seasoned veterans, the label continues to push ahead into new markets and create music that demonstrates the collective human experience.
Officially opening with the debut vinyl release of founding artist, Michael Hardie in 1982 in Los Angeles, California, Punch Records was born alongside daughter Myla Hardie. Punch Records was one of the first indie record labels among a sea of major label power in the ‘80s, but as the indie movement picked up steam, the name changed to Worldhaus Music in 2002 when Myla took over the LLC in NYC. Over the course of 35 years they would go on to produce ten complete albums with countless session studio greats such as: Jesse Ed Davis, Chuck Rainey, Milton Hopkins, Derek O’Brian, Gary Primich, Brian Mitchell, Ernie Durwawa and many more.
Since 2002, Worldhaus has been busier with each passing year producing Michael Hardie’s critically-acclaimed album, “Waiting for Perfection” in 2008 which got on the ballot for the Grammy nomination. “Real” in 2014 which reached #26 on the top 100 Albums for the Americana Roots Charts for the year. Brazilian guitar icon, Fernando Noronha signed with the label in 2015 officially making Worldhaus an international force in the music business.
It is the musicians who have recorded original music for Worldhaus who are responsible for making it a historical 36-year old boutique record label with roots now spreading across the globe. A family-owned, independent record label which represents international artists in Brazil, Argentina, Europe and North America. Worldhaus strives as a creative brand and entrepreneurial force to unite cultures through the creation of cultural exchange programs for ambassador missions, produce content for media broadcasting, music publishing and funding solutions for the independent artist to be able to have an influential voice through culture.
