Label Owner, Bella Union (UK)
Bella Union is 20 years old this year, and label owner and MD/CEO Simon Raymonde has been travelling around Europe, USA, Australia and NZ looking for music pretty much since he started the company following the break up of his band Cocteau Twins.
Discovering artists like Fleet Foxes, Laura Veirs, John Grant, Midlake, Lift to Experience, working with Beach House on every record since they formed, with Explosions In The Sky, now home to household names like The Flaming Lips, Spiritualized, M Ward, Father John Misty, Mercury Rev, the label has always been a home for so many young artists looking for nurture, and now as the third decade begins, what is in store for the label and the man behind the scenes? Come and find out at our “In Conversation With..” at Tomorrow Comes Today 17, which will be a fascinating insight into survival, the ups and downs of coming from a cult indie band to running a cult indie label!
Some special guests from the label’s present roster will be in attendance so check the website soon!
