About Respect My Region

In 2011, Respect My Region dedicated itself to elevating urban culture from across the Pacific Northwest. Fast forward to 2017, we won our first award from Seattle Weekly and have packed out numerous shows across Washington state. We truly want our fans to know we wouldn’t be who we are without you.

What started off as a clothing line back at Central Washington University, has grown into a full-blown lifestyle and music platform that supports companies, artists, and creatives who believe in the value of local culture.

Respect My Region is expanding nationally in 2018, integrating music and cannabis news from all over the country. If you know of someone or something we should cover, shoot us an email at

“Family Over Everything” is our motto here at RMR, so if you see us on the street, out at an event, or online say “high” and let’s connect!
