The Music Gateway community is extensive to say the least! The industry roles of our members range from songwriters, recording artists, managers, A&R’s and record labels (and many more)! We are always intrigued to learn more about members of our community. As well as find out what it is about our platform that entices members coming from different fields of expertise. Recently, we were fortunate enough to have Dom and Tom from Mayfield Records pay us a visit!
With a lifelong love for creating quality music, CEO and founder Dominic (below) has combined his passion with over 20 years in successful business development to create a superior recording experience! Based in Portsmouth, Mayfield Records represents an innovative approach to new music production; incorporating recording studio, house-band, Music Record label and video production services.
Tom currently has two roles at Mayfield; as an engineer in their studio, as well as being the sync and licensing lead for their record label. Prior to joining the team, Tom was a member of psych-pop band Kassassin Street and has worked on both sides of the glass in some of the top studios in the country!
Mayfield is home to a diverse roster of artists, and there is an impressively consistent stream of new releases emanating from the label.
The latest addition to the Mayfield collective is The New Shoes. Forming in 2017, The New Shoes have been performing roof-raising gigs, winning local talent shows and recording music with a no-nonsense punk rock ethos. The Gosport lads have blended their roots in garage rock and new wave music with 60s pop melody, turning music fans’ heads at live shows across the UK. After a consistently busy year, the band are now setting up their own gigs and looking to grow by making festival appearances and touring across the country.
We hoped you enjoyed reading about Mayfield Records and their experience with the Music Gateway platform, as much we did meeting them!
