Marshall Amplification has announced the creation of its own record label, Marshall Records.
Marshall Records will be headed up by producer Rob Cass, music industry veteran Steve Tannett and Marshall Brand Licensing Director Grace Pantony.
The move follows similar sideways forays into home audio and even the smartphone sector.
"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,” said the firm. "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."
Currently there is no news on any acts that will be signed to the label.
