Our story begins with a conversation on the side of a hill between two music lovers with a vision of going global. Guy Hale and Oliver Overton made that conversation a reality. Hillside Global made its way onto the British music scene in the summer of 2020 and is now established and widely recognised as a boutique Record Label and emerging Publishing Company. This unique independent label located in the heart of England boasts its specialties magnificently, not only in the curation of bespoke vinyl records and deluxe CD packages, but also branching out to include books and merchandise. Hillside Global collaborate with musicians and authors on detailed, limited and sought-after releases. Carefully crafted by creativity manufactured in England using independent, eco conscious, family lead businesses.
"The formula remains the same. Find great artists and help them get their music out into the World."– Guy Hale
