Crionic Mind started in 1995 as a label for my own music with the intention to grow it into a label that focused on under appreciated projects that were doing something special.

Just as the label was hitting its stride in 2002 a rats nest of personal and financial setbacks converged, preventing me continuing at that time. During the time that I was unable to focus on the label I came to realize I didn’t really miss it. I was proud of each of the records Crionic Mind released, they were good experiences with good people. The feedback was better than I could have hoped. The label managed to have an identity that was its own. Based on the music, the aesthetics, you had a pretty good idea where Crionic Mind was coming from. But I didn’t have the urge to revive it.

In 2018. I started recording again and had a surplus of music suddenly. I put those things up on Bandcamp without a label affiliation and was fine with that. These releases have since been rolled into Crionic Mind as digital releases.

At the end of 2020 my wife passed away. I recorded two albums as a way to try and process that. Once I had them finished I wasn’t sure what to do with them the. I started the label back up as an outlet for the music and also to have something to focus on.

The response has been encouraging, and it’s been nice renewing some old friendships. If it can maintain itself – where one release pays for the next, I will try and keep it going. Smaller runs, fewer distributors than the old days it seems, but aside from that there’s no grand philosophical difference from what I want to do with it. Except, ultimately I hope to phase out the distro.
