Peak Records

(Est. 1994) Peak Records was created in 1994 by Andi Howard and Russ Freeman, founder of the popular contemporary jazz group The Rippingtons. This new independent label grabbed industry attention as the artist roster grew to include some of the leaders of the adult contemporary and smooth jazz scene, such as Regina Belle, Miki Howard, Phil Perry, David Benoit, Paul Taylor, Eric Marienthal, Glenn Jones, O'2L, the Braxton Brothers, and, of course, The Rippingtons.
