Local Record Label Works to Bolster Genre

The course of Pinecastle Records altered in 2010 about as rapidly as a banjo picker's fingers skip across the strings.
In February the Columbus-based label folded because of then-owner Tom Riggs' poor health. By September it rose back with vigor.
“We want to put our name out there and let people know that we’re back in business,” said Matt Hood, vice president of publicity. “For the past few months we've been dealing with the administration side of business but we've got artists with real potential in the new year.”
After Dr. Lonnie Lassiter purchased the business, he immediately laid out a new vision for the label.
