Promoting real musical talent

The Elite record label takes on only what it considers to be quality recording

artists offering music of a high enough musical calibre and recording

standard to be released onto the global digital music market.

We’d like to think we can make a difference to the music industry, even if it’s only in a relatively small way. Our selection process for new artists is very stringent in that we try to judge a song on it’s merits, rather than commercial potential alone, although sellability is obviously an important factor. That old adage about record labels rejecting songs after listening only to the first few seconds tends to be true in our case. Our catalogue is building all the time, so keep on visiting our site for new releases, promotional videos and features on our artists.
