Nurturing real independent music rooted in tradition, while blazing paths in the new music industry.

The corporate music industry is broken. Artists get the shit end of the stick and the current “pop” music is a joke.

Based on punk rock, DIY ethics, Little Class Records provide artists with the tools they need to thrive, not just survive, while bringing you real music.

Musician Support

Providing our artists with quality, unlimited studio time and short run, as needed albums/merch. There are no advances to repay!Artists keep their publishing rights! No corporate music shenanigans!

Nurturing The Community

Our mission is to cultivate the Kansas City roots music community and culture, while helping put our city back on the map as a relevant music city. (Westport Roots Fest, Westport Saloon, Sponsors of Middle of the Map Fest)
