Sargent House is a Los Angeles based management company and record label. It was founded in June 2006 by Cathy Pellow, who is a music video commissioner for Atlantic Records and who also owns a music video production company called Refused TV. Pellow began managing the rock outfit RX Bandits in 2006. The band needed to release its new album ...And the Battle Begun, so Pellow decided to launch her own record label (largely out of interest in doing things differently from the traditional model of record labels). From that point onward, Pellow continued to manage bands and release records, all under the Sargent House banner.
Chronologically from when Pellow first began working with them, Sargent House manages the RX Bandits, These Arms Are Snakes, Maps & Atlases, Russian Circles, Tera Melos, Fang Island, Daughters, Red Sparowes, Good Old War, Native, This Town Needs Guns, Bygones, Lisa Papineau, Big Sir, Cast Spells, Zechs Marquise, Zach Hill, Le Butcherettes, Adebisi Shank, Hella, And So I Watch You From Afar and Helms Alee. Additionally, Pellow also helmed the Rodriguez Lopez Productions imprint, founded by The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López. Sonny Kay came from the Gold Standard Labs label as art director for Rodriguez Lopez Productions (RLP) and Sargent House. RLP launched in March 2009, with its first release by El Grupo Nuevo de Omar Rodriguez Lopez titled Cryptomnesia out May 5, 2009. The partnership between Rodriguez Lopez Productions and Sargent House ended in early 2014.
Currently, all Sargent House managed bands also have a release on the SH label. The label has a strict "no submissions" policy, preferring to add new bands stemming from within the ever-expanding Sargent House family.
