The Marigold Label is an independent music company and state-of-the-art recording studio that has been in operation since 1976. Based out of Toronto, Canada, Marigold is home to Juno Award-winning Classic Rock group, The Stampeders, electro-pop trio Parallels, and indie rock group Eyes of Giants.
Founded by Stampeders’ guitarist Rich Dodson, Marigold began as a 24-track recording studio that has seen the likes of Alanis Morissette, Jeff Healey and Buffy Sainte-Marie come through its doors. Marigold was one of the first true ‘indie’ labels in Canada. With a track record that spans four decades, Marigold has since extended its core functions to include touring and artist management.Our Artists

Canadian electronic-pop trio, PARALLELS, conjures classic pop sentiments of neon nights with songs that transport the past into a modern context, just as grey fades into color on Polaroid film. NME described front-woman, Holly Dodson’s vocals as ‘A young Madonna meet’s modern electro’. Echoes of this can be heard in the soundtrack of 2013 Oscar winning short-film “Curfew” featuring Parallels’ song, “Dry Blood”, from their debut album Visionaries. Dodson, and her brother, drummer, Nick Dodson, along with keyboardist Artem Galperine, are currently back in Toronto writing their third full-length album.ILoveParallels.com

DownVega is an indie-pop trio from Chicago, Illinois, comprised of producer Jimmy Con (Comasoft, Ghosthouse), vocalist Beccy Schneider and Sam Lalk on bass. Brought together through a chance connection via craigslist, Beccy stumbled upon Jimmy’s ad soliciting a vocalist for a studio project. The two began writing in the spring of 2015 for their debut EP to be released on independent Toronto imprint, The Marigold Label. Drawing on the influence of artists like Chvrches, FKA Twigs and Whitney Houston, DownVega’s powerful debut single “Give You My Love” weaves Beccy’s sultry vocals with crystalline synthesizers and bold beats. The song evokes the tension of desire with lyrics of sympathetic longing -- potent enough to glow in the dark. DownVega is set to make their live debut at Double Door in Chicago, supporting Canadian recording artist, Allie X.DownVega.com
