“Snappy, witty, spiky and colourful” – Stephen Graham on BRC’s releases, Tempo
Birmingham Record Company presents eclectic and exciting new releases by artists who challenge, innovate and transform ideas of music today. Based at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in the heart of the UK and with an international outlook, BRC’s releases have featured performing artists including the dynamic Dutch ensemble Orkest de Ereprijs; Swedish guitar collective Ensemble Krock; Irish duo Mary Dullea and Darragh Morgan as well as collaborations with German choreographer Sebastian Matthias and homegrown talent including clarinettist Jack McNeill, Cobalt Duo and Decibel.
BRC celebrates off-beat work that sits between genres. As well as 12-minute micro-operas and Country-and-Western piano quintets, listeners are just as likely to find music structured around famous football matches, recordings of 1920s mechanical dancehall organs, and story-telling in yoga position.
Since 2019 Birmingham Record Company has been exclusively distributed by NMC Recordings.
