A NEW Coventry-based independent record label will welcome the brightest emerging talents the city has to offer later this month at its Fargo Village base.

Domesticated Records will launch later this month at Coventry’s creative corner and has been set up to harness the immense talent in the city and support artists in producing, promoting and distributing their music.

The new record label will also aim to establish a creative community for artists to inspire one another and work collaboratively.

Building on Coventry’s rich musical heritage as the home of 2 Tone music, Domesticated Records will champion new music reflecting Coventry’s diverse and unique talents.

Co-founder and CEO of Domesticated Records, Chris Field, has been working as a freelance music producer and sound engineer for many years, and was astounded at the engaging artists in the city when he first moved to Coventry three years ago.

He added: “I discovered a buzz and an atmosphere that is rare to see outside of Coventry.

“The passion and standard of the musicianship is so high, I had to do something.”

Chris is joined by artistic director Michelle Sciarrotte – who has worked as a music lecturer and session guitarist and has an unrivalled passion for music.

Michelle said: “We wanted to build on the sense of community that already exists within Coventry whilst providing artists with a platform for accessing the global market through releasing their music online.

“This launch event at Fargo Village will be an opportunity for people to experience some of the finest musicians in Coventry.

“It gives us immense pleasure to be involved in the Coventry music scene at such an exciting time.”

Tickets for the launch event will be available on the door at Urban Coffee Company from 6.30pm on Sunday (May 29) priced £5.
