We’re a company dedicated to supporting musicians. We know how hard it is to gather all of the elements you need to come up with a successful release.

A&R / Business Affairs / Art Department / Production and Stock Control / Marketing and Promotion / Sales Reps / Orders and Warehousing / Accounts and Royalties / Online Strategy

With more than 30 years experience and ongoing daily involvement in the music industry, we can be your guide to setting up and running a successful music career. We can guide you through the whole cycle, from your creative process, building an image around your release, setting up all of your marketing channels, booking a tour and running your release campaign.
