The Black Dahlia Story
Black Dahlia Music (BDM) was founded in 1995 by Dick
Olsher, who was then Stereophile Magazine's Senior Cont. Editor
and is now Senior Editor at Enjoy the Music.com Review Magazine.
Dick's idea was to transform the typical 'audiophile'
label into a musical force. Black Dahlia's intent is to focus not only on
sound quality, but on the music itself. New creative artists, who have
something to say, are BDM's main reason for being.
A word about our name: Black Dahlia is a mystical symbol of rebirth;
a flower that blossoms once in a million years. As a new independent label, BDM is dedicated to
the goal of offering the public blossoming artists and new music with
sound quality beyond the reach of mass-market labels. A blossom of music
and sound captures the essence of what BDM is all about.
