Marshall Amplification has announced the launch of Marshall Records Limited, a new label to inspire people to bring guitar music to music lovers everywhere.
Marshall is a complete music brand, not just an amp maker. It was Jim Marshall’s passion for music that was the driver for all he achieved, which is something that goes into all of Marshall’s products. It is with this ethos that the concern not only make products that enable guitarists to express themselves artistically, we also produce products for listening to the music that they make: Bluetooth music speakers (Acton, Kilburn, Hanwell etc) as well as headphones (Monitor, Major II, Minor etc), and the ‘London’ music smartphone. It was this philosophy that spurred the creation of the label:
So, if we make the amplifiers that enable guitarists to make music, and we produce products for their fans and music lovers to listen to their music, then it makes sense that we join those two things together and help bands and musicians record, promote and perform their music. And that is exactly why we have created Marshall Records.
Marshall Records is the next logical step in Marshall’s evolution and is a keystone in the Marshall story. Now, through the Marshall brand the medium of creation is manufactured, music is made and music is brought to the people.
Marshall Records is managed by Rob Cass, Steve Tannett and Marshall Brand Licensing Director Grace Pantony:
