music to the core

We offer the experience of over 30 years in the Record Industry working for the likes of MCA and Pinnacle Records – which included numerous No1 Albums and Singles projects with Artists as diverse as The Killers, Katie Melua, Morrissey, Bjork and Cliff Richard.
Currently we manage the Artist BIRD and the ambient dance remixer and Producer, BLACK CHAPEL.
We also promote Events, via our Promotions Arm, EMJAY SESSIONS – primarily in Chelmsford but with Artists from around the country, and as far afield as Holland and Ireland.
We have a relationship with a Live Agency and a Record Label that allows us to bring new music to Chelmsford, whilst promoting some of the best local acts on our Bills.
Janie Price is a composer and musician known by her stage name BIRD.
Her 2004 debut album “The Insides”, gained widespread critical acclaim with reviews in the likes of The Telegraph making comparisons with Bjork and Rickie Lee Jones.
This was followed by the albums, “Girl and A Cello” (2009) and “Figments of Our Imagination” ( 2015). Bird is currently working on her 4th album with renowned Producer Mike Hedges (The Cure/Manic Street Preachers/Travis) due for release in the Autumn 2019.
“This is a stunning album” Janie Price’s beautiful voice, real, tender and authentically British. The writing is so unselfconscious… nothing short of sublime”
