27/03/11 Fledgling Baby hits the stage running
Telescopic Baby artists performed in March to a packed venue in Highgate. The supposedly low key label launch provided a high energy introduction to a talented roster of performers.
Coming out of London's Livingston Studios (Bjork, REM, Magic Numbers) under the leadership of established producer and songwriter Ken Rose (Marianne Faithfull, Warners, EMI) Telescopic Baby is just as much an artists collective as it is a label.
Ken Rose says, "It was really set up by accident. I have been working most of my life on major labels and it was only when I was speaking at a lecture and someone asked how I would go about setting up the perfect record label that I decided to do it for real.
Music is art. There is no right or wrong and I choose all my artists by gut feeling. But it really takes time - it can take up to five records before they find success and a voice people want to stick with.
Because I’m doing this on a pretty reasonable budget I don’t need to have hit success to keep it going..The aim is to make really good records and ensure that all the artists have the creative freedom to do what they want.”
