Electric Honey, the HND Music Business Management student run record label at GKC, are pleased to announce that last years signed artists, Nicol and Elliott, have been snapped up by the award winning and highly prestigious record label Last Night From Glasgow.
As Electric Honey is a development label we take this as a job well done by the students at Electric Honey Records and we wish Nicol and Elliott all the best for the future. Electric Honey has been Instrumental in gaining radio exposure across the airwaves and raising the live profile of the act over the last eighteen months .
The students and musicians also enjoyed a collaborative launch at The Hug and Pint and Oran Mor by working closely with the Screen Printing students from elysee St Geraud of Aurillac, France on their recent Erasmus exchange programme.
Andrew from the band writes
"This opportunity is in no small part due to the hard work EH has put into our 2 singles to date and we can't say how grateful we are for the opportunity to work with you at the label. It's been a great experience and we wanted to pass on our thanks to you and the students for all you've done for us."
Releasing with LNFG has been agreed this morning so neither they nor we have announced it yet. There's still some planning to work out.
Thanks again, Ken and all at GKC. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support the label down the line. We will be only too happy to help.
Andrew & Rachel"
