Whether it's our music company, record label or live clubs... we're all about the jazz
Splash Point Music Ltd
Splash Point Music Ltd started life as an award-winning record label, soon expanding into music publishing. It is now a fully-fledged live music company running #splashpointjazz clubs around the South East of the UK, with occasional forays to London (Ronnie Scott’s etc), and abroad.
It was all started in 2003 by pianist/singer/producer Neal Richardson (who calls jazz ‘the beautiful curse!’) as he had always wanted to run a record label. Having also an addiction to the sea, Neal lives in Seaford in the UK and swims every day… Neal’s favourite place, Splash Point, is the beautiful cliff at the Seaford Head end of the beach, which heralds the start of the Seven Sisters cliffs to Beachy Head. So it was a natural choice when it came to naming the company.
Splash Point Records/Publishing
At various times we have had on our roster the cream of the British jazz scene, especially vocalists, including Claire Martin OBE (publishing); Liane Carroll (four CDs and a DVD), Ian Shaw (three CDs and a single), Sue Richardson (four CDs and a single), Andy Drudy (two EPs), Neal Richardson (one CD so far…), Alex Webb (one CD; publishing) and many more…
Most albums were recorded in our own studios, or at Abbey Road, and produced by Neal Richardson. We have had song placements and licensing in territories worldwide. We also sub-licensed many other albums for digital distribution under our imprint Splash Point Digital.
Splash Point Jazz Club (#splashpointjazz)
With the collapse of the CD industry, Neal has returned to his first love; playing live – to realise another crazy dream: running his own jazz club. And why stop at one?… Currently running in Seaford, Brighton, Battle, Eastbourne, Alfriston and Hastings, with the very best of the British jazz scene and international guests.
