Our team is comprised of musicians and artists, record store owners and vinyl enthusiasts, fuelled by the passions of the independent sector to want to make a lasting difference to the music industry.
By day we provide the friendliest and most down-to-earth service possible, with efficiency and quality at the heart of our operations, and super competitive prices that reward our loyal custom. In our free time we are gig-goers and songwriters, photographers and event organisers, crate diggers, community activists and inherent believers that music is one of the most vital cornerstones of our society.

Last Thursday saw a 450 strong gathering of forward-thinking independents converge on Glazier’s Hall to participate in AIM’s revered Indie-Con event. The sold out conference offered a full day of insightful panels, interviews and keynotes covering an array of increasingly relevant topics, including a case study of Laura Marling’s successful album release campaign, tips on accessing Australian and New Zealand markets, and a heavyweight panel discussing what Brexit means for the music industry and movement of musicians and their touring parties. The latter panellists included the likes of Labour’s Hilary Benn and was chaired by UK Music’s Michael Dugher, who is widely recognised as one of the main instigators of the ‘Agent of Change’ movement to protect UK music venues, that the government recently pledged to adopt into future planning policy.
