Founded in early 2018, Preserve Records is a home-grown Chicago music family with roots leading back to the formation of folk-collective Friends of the Bog in 2016.
As living room rehearsals led to a bedroom studio, more and more songwriters found their way into Friends of the Bog member Patrick Budde’s home. What would soon become the Preserve Records family had started to take shape. Studio expansion, a children’s musical, concert films, a baking show, and a collaborative holiday album, were among highlights enjoyed at The Preservatory in 2018.
2019 is marked by a myriad of releases from Preserve Records artists as they branch out to live performances across Chicago.
