Founded in Tours and based in Nantes since 2000, Yolk publishes the work of many French, European and American artists.
At YOLK, the artists are the producers of their records. With a catalogue of more than 80 references, YOLK offers the public a glimpse of the liveliness of today's jazz, a virtuous purchasing system that benefits producers, quality musical objects, and sometimes unexpected concerts !
For several years we have chosen to distance ourselves from the commercial distribution system. Fortunately, we have regained a balanced relationship with this system by working with L'Autre Distribution. Today, the Yolk catalogue is available via its website (www.yolkrecords.com) and in the shelves of French and foreign stores.
Thanks to this more balanced approach, the Yolk label can remain a platform for artists and audiences to meet, a pole of attraction for musicians who recognize themselves in creative music...In 2006, the label was awarded the "Django d'or" du spectacle vivant for its entire activity. In 2019 Yolk records was awarded "label of the year" at the "Victoires du jazz".
