Thanks for a brilliant 2017 and to anyone who has ever read one of these mailshots or a blog post, bought a record, come to one of our shows or checked out any of the artists that we work with. We can’t do this without you.
A special thank you to the artists, managers, labels, publishers, agents, promoters, venue staff/band crew and anyone else that we’ve encountered this year that’s made our lives a bit more pleasurable.
Stay tuned for an incredible 2018.
