Mellowtone Records was born from the spirit of the nomadic Mellowtone nights, quietly creating a stir since 2004.
With over fifteen years of gigs, parties, collaborations and good times, Mellowtone have presented songwriters and bands from the worlds of folk, blues, roots and so much more, in a variety of Liverpool's most iconic and intimate venues.
Mellowtone Records progresses this mission further; Seeking out music with Soul. Magic. Alchemy. And bringing it to the wider world.
