Our goal as an independent record label has always been to work with artists of the highest caliber, and bring you music that we feel will stand the test of time. Every year we set the bar a bit higher than the previous one.
We feel that 2018 like previous years was special, all of our releases have been played either or in some cases both terrestrial and internet radio with much acclaim. Many of these artists even ended up in the best of 2018 playlists.
2018 was pretty amazing, we released a wide range of musicial styles and formats, artists such as Forever Twelve, Bomber Goggles, Michael-Alan Taylor and Ten Jinn were nominated for album of the year, not all won but many ended up on various top album charts for 2018, as well as receiving critical acclaim in various music blogs and magazines around the world.

2018 was all about growth and broadening our vision of marketing and promotion, we launched two new entities to do just that the first was Melodic Revolution Radio, at first we started off promoting all of the MRR releases, somewhere close to 100 releases, but then we decide to expand and add music bt many independent artists that were not receiving worldwide airplay and distribution. the station stream 24/7 playing all styles of music.

PeacockSunrise Records (PSR) was our second new concept to strengthin our vision for marketing and promotion growth, conceived on the 5th of December 2018 and is an imprint MRR.
PSR is an Alternative Crossover label and will be the home to amazing Rock, Pop, Blues, Singer-songwriter, Alternative, and whatever else moves us music. Our promise is to release the same quality of music we now release via MRR.
One of our very first releases on PSR will be the debut solo album by Scarlet Hollow Vocalist Allison VonBülow. Allison is an artist that we have had the pleasure to work with since 2006 when we discover the magic of Echoes Landing.
