Relative Pitch Label Profiled

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

As anyone in his orbit will probably tell you, Relative Pitch label owner Kevin Reilly is, above all, a music fan. Over the last 12 years, that fandom has been the driving force behind Relative Pitch, which focuses on improvisational music, free jazz, avant-garde, and other experimental subgenres. Reilly is uninterested in trends or hype. Raised in New Jersey by working-class parents with a suspicion of art, he’s always been wary of charlatans. As a result, his approach to the music world is remarkably no-nonsense. He’s unsnobby and unimpressed by gimmicks, but he’s always listening—always searching for the sublime, the transcendent, the transformative.
