Downport Records is an Independent Record Label that was founded in January of 2015 by Dan LeBrun with the main goal of bringing people together through music. We work to find meaning in both creativity and community. Our artists are our family, just as are all the people who listen to them and have shared with them as well.
We're working to bring you the best in local music.
Born and raised in Stony Brook, NY, Dan LeBrun has spent the majority of his life playing a variety of instruments beginning with the piano. Before turning 18, Dan also learned to sing and play drums, guitar, and bass. He has actively sought a professional career in music since he played in and managed a number of local bands in high school. During this time, Dan toured as a percussionist in his school's orchestra through Italy, Spain, and China.
Throughout college, Dan has played in and worked with a number of musical groups. His current project is with Downport Records' own Hold Fast Hope. He was recently a part of The Left Banke reunion tour, known for their hit song from '67 - "Walk Away Renee". From his experience in school and internships (MAC Presents, HQ-Creative, Razor & Tie), Dan has developed skills in songwriting, studio and live recording, audio editing, band management, booking concerts, business management, financial accounting, and digital/social media marketing. Dan currently studies Music Business as New York University with a focus in audio production.
