Single Lock Records is an independent record label founded in 2013 by Ben Tanner, John Paul White and Will Trapp.

We are based in Florence, AL and we exist to help talented artists make their best recordings. Our roster of artists is a diverse, eclectic set of accomplished musicians with something to say and the skills to say it.

At Single Lock, we celebrate songs. Being a label based in the Shoals, maybe that’s just something that’s in our blood. Our favorite music sticks with you and makes you feel something. Frankly, that’s what we want to release—our favorite music.

That’s what we are striving to do.

This passion informs everything we do, from our venue in downtown Florence (116 E. Mobile) to our recording studio (also in Florence). Our team is made up of musicians, business people, creatives and dreamers. We love music and we love the process of creating, promoting and delivering that music to you.
