Tonic is a Vancouver-based, boutique record label founded in 2003. With a diverse roster of artists and over 10 years of experience in the industry, we believe in real music for real people.
Tonic Records draws its brand from the ancestry of founder Kate Wattie, who is a descendant of the legendary William “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Born in 1847, Buffalo Bill was an illustrious hero of the Old West, famed for his Wild West Tours across the United States and Europe. Cody’s hallmark nickname came from his matchless skills as a buffalo hunter.
A champion of the Western frontier, Buffalo Bill’s rugged yet accomplished persona is what drives the heart of Tonic Records.
