blisstone was brought to life in january 2009 by musican and producer jo bartmes. the label is a small platform for high quality music projects generated by a circle of musician friends. the musical spectrum of the projects range from live played instrumental soul jazz to computer manipulated electronic music with vocals. in february 09 the first new release on blisstone came out: the soul jazz dynamiters.

in march 2016 is the official release of our ninth production: under cover by cobody featuring singer and guitarist Kosho (Söhne Mannheims), drummer Erwin Ditzner (les primitivs, ex-MardiGras bb) and Jo Bartmes on hammond b3 playing an eclectic mix of originals and very personal versions of some old rock classics - hence under cover.

you can buy all releases here directly from the artists (!!!) via paypal or email order as well as three older bartmes records that have been released on other labels. check out the music of all the blisstone artists by clicking the band links below. enjoy!
