According To Our Records (or ATO Records) was founded in early 2000 by Dave Matthews (of the Dave Matthews Band), Coran Capshaw, Chris Tetzeli and Michael McDonald as a division of RCA Records. ATO Records is based in New York City and currently distributes its records through RED Distribution.

ATO Records currently represents a diverse group of artists. The mission of ATO Records is to fully develop each artist and each release with sufficient time and attention. According to the official website, "there is no timeline, but there is a plan to build the label on the quality of the musicians."

The first of their successes was David Gray, whose album White Ladder (and resulting single "Babylon") gained critical acclaim and popularity in the United States as well as abroad. The single "Babylon" climbed the charts in the United States and provided a good introduction for the record label into the music business.

ATO Records is said to be seeking to part ways with Sony BMG and find new representation.[1][2]

In November 2007, Billboard confirmed that ATO would be releasing Radiohead's seventh album, In Rainbows, through the TBD Records imprint in the United States. The album was released on January 1, 2008, one day after the XL Recordings release of the album in the United Kingdom.[3]
