Rough Beast was founded in Springfield, MO by R.J. Jennings in 2013. Jennings, has handled numerous rock & roll releases and brings that experience, a passion for great music and a TCB attitude into his new label with a barrel full of confidence.

Rough Beast intends to build a family of artists stretching beyond the boundaries of any one genre, whose music resonates from deep within the soul. The label pledges to search high and low for the roughest beasts this wild world has to offer and bring them to your turntable and tape deck, with the sole purpose of perfecting the Good Time.

The roster currently includes Ranch Ghost, Del Sur, Andy Ferro, Casey Jack, Ghost Dance, Gigantic, Dirt Nap and The Sapphire City Nighthawks and Sister Shakedown.
