Sony Music UK

Sony Music has played a pioneering role in music history, from the first-ever music label to the invention of the flat disc record. It has nurtured some of music’s most iconic artists and produced some of the most influential recordings of all time.

The story began in 1887 with the formation of Columbia Records – the oldest surviving label in the recording industry. Today, Sony Music works in more than 60 countries.

From its position at the intersection of music, entertainment and technology, it brings imagination and expertise to the latest products and platforms, embraces new business models, employs breakthrough tools and provides powerful insights that help artists push boundaries and reach new audiences.
