Let's Riot! Music is an independent Canadian Distribution & Marketing Company, focusing on roots music from boppin' rockabilly to vintage country, from gritty blues to classic swing. The common thread from genre to genre on Let's Riot! is genuine heart and raw emotion. The company's core services lie in marketing, cross-promotion, artist development, and media outreach.
Through East Coast Rockabilly Riot events, they have formed relationships with Halifax Pop Explosion, The Maritime Tattoo Festival, and The Canadian Surf Film Festivals.
Let's Riot! Music is in full swing to release five full length projects and another compilation in the coming year. Through the marketing campaigns associated with these releases, the label continues to forge relationships with radio on both sides of The Atlantic Ocean.
In 2013 Let's Riot! Music signed a distribution deal with Sweden based labels "Playground Music" & "Rockabilly Roads.
."Blues Train is a show that likes to push the boundaries, so that it's not just straight blues. Let's Riot! has been one of my very favourite discoveries so far. Not only are there some hugely talented and exciting artists on the label but the whole project is just wickedly cool too! I can't wait to hear what's coming up next " Dave Watkins, Blues Train, www.frome.fm, England.
"Just got the Let's Riot vol 1 compilation. This is a solid record. I honestly wasn't expecting it to be so good."

“Let's Riot Music is one of Canada's most exciting labels.”

“Very cool Canadian rockabilly label”
-Johnny Maraca Host of The Rock & Roll Riot 2013
"Canadian independent label Lets Riot! Music supports artists playing Blues, RnR and Country music. There are 16 great songs that made it onto this compilation, most of them certainly unknown in Europe. Ginger St. James comes up w/ uptempo Rhythm n Blues while Shiloh Lindsay shows us how Country music should sound like. There are some artists that may be called a hidden treasure and hopefully Lets Riot! Music will make these stars shine bright! In my case it was Bill Thornberry, member of the Hellbent Rockers, who helped me have a look (and a listen) with sending a copy to me. Not only for that reason, but for me being a "rockabilly guy", i recommend to check out "head over heels". 4 out of 5 possible stars" - Frank Dynamite - Rock N roll Magazine 2013
"The unofficial glue that holds the maritime rockabilly scene together is Let's Riot!. Sheer, unadulterated love for the genre brings them together, and the East Coast Rockabilly Riot is the convention of like-minded fans. When not running a label (that will see five full-lengths in the next year, including upcoming tours for bands on their roster to Belgium and Holland) Let's Riot! like to let off steam. "We're excited to see the crowd again, our audience is very enthusiastic. They dress up, they dance, they really know how to have a good time! We've been feeling a bit of withdrawal from that connection," says Chris Martin. co-organizer and co-founder" --SJ
