J-Bird Records Logo

Status: Partially Found

J-Bird Records was a record label based in Wilton, Connecticut that was founded in 1996 by Jay Barbieri, which was created in order to sign upcoming and local artists and make money off of advertising them. The label is most notable for being one of the first online recording labels and signing artists such as Rockapella. Throughout it's run, the company had many albums signed under their label by various artists.[1]


For reasons unknown, the company disbanded in 2002 and in turn, deleted their webpage, removing access to all of their albums. Since then, many of them have become lost to time with only a handful ever resurfacing. The only way to view the entire album listing now is through the Wayback Machine. The webpage shows that the albums were available to buy in CD format, potentially meaning that the only method of obtaining the lost albums is through CDs that people may have bought through the website while it was still up.[2] The CDs are recognized by the J-Bird logo being on the back of the case as well as on the disc itself.

Note: Although these albums do exist on J-Bird discs, the company's disbandment led some artists to publish the albums again under a new label, meaning the missing albums could also be found on non-J-Bird CDs. Also, the albums mentioned in the catalog below are those that are confirmed to exist by credible sources, meaning there could still be more albums that have not even been documented online. The fact that the J-Bird Records website itself on the Wayback Machine only documented snapshots up to December 2000 (prior to the date of the company's disbandment) also makes this theory plausible.
