Employer name

Cherry Red Records Ltd

Employer description

Cherry Red Records is a British independent record label founded by Iain McNay in 1978. The label is home to Classic Punk bands such as Dead Kennedys, Cock Sparrer and Exploited, Indie bands such as Felt, Everything But the Girl and The Fall, Rock bands such as Hawkwind and Genesis, and Pop acts such as Kim Wilde and Howard Jones.  

Now in its 41st year the label has the enviable position of continuity and growth, and with over 400 releases a year, as one of the most prolific independent record labels in the world. Iain surmises: “There are only three independent labels left from the late ‘70s. The ABC; Ace, Beggars and Cherry Red. Everybody else has either closed down or been bought. We take people that can A&R well, in a historical way and then utilise what they’re good at and fit it into the Cherry Red framework. They can flourish at the elements they’re good at and we can cover the bits they’re not as good with. There’s an art to that. The constants here are a passion for what we do and a commitment to do the very best for the music and artists we represent. We dare to be different, we look for new opportunities and we’re willing to reinvent ourselves.”
