Dine Alone Records was founded by Joel Carriere in early 2005 with associate Greg Below (Distort Entertainment). The label began by debuting City and Colour with Sometimes. Working with Dallas Green achieved immediate success and profit. This allowed Dine Alone to sign other bands such as Bedouin Soundclash. Carriere’s intentions in beginning the label were to further the opportunities available to the bands he managed and was passionate about. The label’s association with Greg Below and Distort Entertainment have since diminished.

Dine Alone Records and Bedlam Music Management (Also owned and operated by Joel Carriere) employ about fifteen people
