A while back I got an email from Wally who was kind enough to say some nice things about the blog. He also mentioned that he had a record label (based out of Canada) and would I like to hear some stuff.
Anyway soon a package of cds arrived all brightly coloured sleeves, some slightly kitsch, some echoed earlier times but all pretty unique.
The music inside was a mixture of summery , breezy , jangly pop the kind of thing you would get if you combined a bit of the sound of Postcard , a bit of Sarah and a bit of Creation.
Wally describes it as a labour of love "we don't sell that many but give a lot away"
I think he is being a tad modest - go to the website here and see how the Beautiful Music label is made up.
A lot of care and attention as well as love of the music has been clearly put into everything about the label.
You can listen to a free sampler from the label here and then better still take a punt on a cd or two
Here is one of my favourites
