About Us

Out of an old converted post office on Wolfe Island, Ontario, Wolfe Island Records connects poetry, music and spirit.


Musician Hugh Christopher Brown and Wolfe Island Music Festival founder Sarah McDermott bought and renovated the 1880 cedar shake cabin which had often been used in summers to host festival musicians. To convert it to a year round recording studio, running water was added for the first time in the building’s history, and the horse hair insulation was considerably enhanced. It is still heated by wood stove and protected by cats.

In 2023 it is home to contemporary works, as well as catalogue and projects among artists whose relationships span genres and decades. If you are a lover of poetry, a lover of listening to albums by track, a lover of music, check out the musicians of Wolfe Island Records or if you like cats, call us to learn more.

Wolfe Island Records is an artist-run label centred around music produced at The Post Office.


About Green Door Brooklyn

The sister studio to our Wolfe Island cabin is The Green Door in Brooklyn, NY.

Hugh Christopher Brown and Rosie Goodman first collaborated on ‘My Old Man’, the tribute to Rosie’s father, legendary songwriter Steve Goodman recorded at Brown and Kate Fenner’s Brooklyn studio, The Cathouse. The project inspired Goodman and Brown to join forces and create a collective recording space in Brooklyn as a home to creative music, and occasional Canadian Embassy.
