The Label Recordings is the only industry-led University’s record label in the UK. It was set up at Edge Hill University in 2013 to promote new music and offer students hands-on experience in the hugely competitive music industry.
Students are involved in all aspects of the record label including searching for emerging talent, music production, video production, writing reviews and organising live events. Students work directly with people with years of industry experience and are gradually given increasing responsibilities through a process of shadowing and mentoring.
The Label has been featured on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, NME magazine, and on BBC North West Tonight. One of The Label’s first signings, Hooton Tennis Club, have gone on to secure a record deal with Heavenly Recordings.
