We provide all the training and resources you need to create and grow a successful, profitable

"Nick and The Label Machine were invaluable in helping navigate the very daunting task of setting up a record label from scratch. Without their vast inside knowledge of what's required and clear guidance throughout, I know that setting up and more importantly running my own record label would have been a much much harder task."

Ned Woodman

Label Manager TORRE XVI

The Label Machine has been an invaluable resource for me launching my own label, the videos are especially great, really informative and the step by step guides totally take the headache out of planning. For anyone who doesn't know where to start or who wants to expand their knowledge it's a totally brilliant, innovative approach, lifting the curtain of mystery that surrounds the elusive 'record label' and putting control back in the artists hands.
