About Intarsia Records
Embracing the ever-changing face of the music industry, Intarsia Records strives for a forward-thinking, raw and collaborative approach to creating music. Led by a team of creatives with experience in a variety of fields across the music industry, we appreciate that an artist understands themselves better than anyone else ever could.
Putting artists at the centre of what we do is vital in ensuring their success. Intarsia Records simply wants to facilitate the best possible artistic version of yourself. Our artists are encouraged to work collaboratively; both with us and within the creation of their music, broadening the horizons of what their sound can be. This hands-on process gives us the ability to use our skills and experience to support clients every step of the way. We want to tackle the status quo of the music industry by ensuring everything we do is accessible to a balanced mix of voices and opinions. Intarsia Records is appreciative of all music but paying a particular focus to genres that are often underrepresented within the music industry, we want to help get the unheard into the spotlight.
