Feature: Launch - Pete Yorn And Wallflowers' Jaffee Become Label Heads

By Neal Weiss

Pete Yorn has teamed with Wallflowers keyboard player Rami Jaffee to start a new independent label dubbed Trampoline Records. The label's purpose "is to expose the world to good music," according to a note on the label's official website (trampolinerecords.com).

The Los Angeles-based effort will make its debut in September with the various-artists collection Trampoline Records Greatest Hits, Vol 1. The disc boasts new songs from Yorn, the Sake Sushi Orchestra (Jaffe's side-gig with fellow Wallflowers members), the Minus 5 featuring R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, and a collaboration between Wallflowers frontman Jakob Dylan and rock photographer Mark Seliger.

Others on the L.A.-centric collection include Minibar, Peter Himmelman, Gingersol, and the Jukebox Junkies, the latter fronted by the third co-founder of Trampoline, Marc Dauer.

Meanwhile, Jaffee and Wallflowers bassist Greg Richling have also produced a batch of songs from the aforementioned Brit-gone-L.A. band, Minibar. The Unstoppable E.P. is currently available only through the group's live performances. More information on the release can be found at the website, minibarfans.com. Minibar's 2001 debut album, Road Movies, was produced by T-Bone Burnett.

The Wallflowers return with their fourth album,Red Letter Days, on September 24. Yorn is currently on tour in the U.K. in support of his debut album, Musicforthemorningafter.
