Cover Story X – The Leaf Label

The Leaf Label was established in late 1994, with the sole intention of releasing music by Graham Sutton of Bark Psychosis. That first Boymerang 12″ sold out in a matter of weeks, so it seemed like a good idea to carry on…

In late 1996 label founder Tony Morley took the plunge and left his day job at the influential 4AD label, making Leaf a full-time priority. They’ve had our ups and downs, but in an increasingly squeezed music industry, they’re stronger now than they’ve ever been. In 2004 they opened an office in New York, and the UK office relocated to its spiritual home in Yorkshire in 2006.

“Our passion hasn’t really changed in all that time – we want to bring the music we love from the fringes to as many people as possible. Every artist is treated as individual, with careful attention to detail and presentation, and we try not repeat ourselves, so the label keeps evolving. Our outlook has always been very international, and in artists like A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Colleen, Efterklang, Murcof, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Asa-Chang & Junray and volcano!, we have brought fascinating and original music to the attention of music lovers worldwide.”
