About The Highlander Company Records

About The Highlander Co.

The Highlander Company Records came into existence in 2015 and was the brain child of Bob Madsen and world-renowned engineer/producer Tom Size.  The two longtime friends started the company originally to act as an incubator label for up-and-coming artists. However, with the untimely demise of Tom Size in October of 2016, Bob was forced to reevaluate the direction of the company and for some time the label has functioned as a conduit to bring the various musical projects that were given birth in the dark, cramped, and not quite sanitary recesses of Bob’s mind.  

Currently Highlander Company Records is on a mission to give a platform to bands who put a premium on musicianship and are committed to excellence in their craft…but who are not pretentious douche bags. We will also strive to promote and encourage all music and musicians who make the world a better place. Who knows what the future may hold, but as for now, it’s enough for us to do our best to live up to the high standards set forth by our former founder Tom Size.  We hope you like what we deliver and we will always strive to do Tom’s legacy proud.

“Hammer meets anvil and the sparks fly. In the process, a sword is made stronger than it could have been before.” The same thing happened back in 1995 when bassist/songwriter/producer Bob Madsen met singer/songwriter/guitarist Brian Cline in the North Bay Area of California. Brian and Bob began working together on […]

What do you get when you cross Djent style guitars and Funk bass? Why, Djunk of course!    Some time ago, bassist/songwriter/producer Bob Madsen was musing to himself what it would sound like if you crossed hard rock in the “Disturbed” or “Breaking Benjamin” style with Mark King playing bass and then put a […]
