Native South Records was created and is owned by multi - genre music producer, songwriter, and mixer

Jonathan Smith [ a.k.a. TheRealJonSmith ]. Jonathan spent many years working professionally in Nashville, relocating to Los Angeles in 2011. The label is an independent, "small batch" boutique record label based in Los Angeles and Nashville.

Native South Records was originally conceived to give an independent platform for artists Jonathan was producing and developing, but has morphed into quite a bit more. The label consistently works with a talented stream of bands, solo artists, songwriters, and music producers, from all over the world, offering them a platform to launch and develop their successful careers. The label works closely with content creators, cinematographers, directors, photographers, and music supervisors for placement opportunities, having placed songs in Universal Pictures, ABC, NBC, Discovery Channel, etc. 

From the very outset of this venture, Jonathan and his team at

Native South Records has always looked to help in any way it can to champion artists and their music.
