We want to work with artists who have raw talent, an awesome presence and big ambitions.
We work with brilliant talent; our artists excite and thrill you and they make you feel alive when you hear them play.
We like artists with a clear vision – who know who they are and where they want to go. KYOTO helps get them there.
We’re experts in live. We’ve lived on the road with some of the biggest bands in the world today, so we know how to build fanbases organically - with the power of great music, tailored marketing and lots of shows. We believe in taking things slowly and doing it right.
As lovers of the creative process we know that giving musicians the chance to make noise in a studio can result in brilliant new music. We don’t want to encourage artists to take on lots of debt, so to keep overheads to a minimum and dial creativity up to the maximum, we provide our roster with free access to our world-class writing spaces and amazing recording studio. It really is beautiful, and everyone is welcome.
KYOTO is proud to be home to brilliant artists like King Nun, Sian Kelly (Holocene), NNN and Mercy, and we’re committed to providing them with the time, the space and direction they need to become global names.
As well as being music-lovers, we recognise creativity comes in many forms, and so we also support great British visual artist, Kazland and, renowned Dutch music photographer Hans Peter.
