HISTORY & ETHOS
Founded by London-based brothers Ben and Daniel, the humble beginnings of PMR formed in the living room of their family home. The dream of becoming a thriving hub of music they loved was a distant vision back then. The aim was to change people’s perception of what pop music is, and what it should sound like, as well as create a music company truly committed to artist development.
Over a decade, that entrepreneurial spirit, energy and vision have cemented PMR’s legacy. It’s been dubbed influential, unique and trailblazing, with a reputation for signing excellence and artists with a strong identity. Finding and executing music that comes from a cultural place with the art at the centre of things is key, as is maintaining ambition and a willingness to take risks.
Among its slew of cult and commercial achievements, PMR is home to multiple chart-topping, global platinum-selling, Mercury, Grammy and BRIT-award nominated artists (and more). In 2022, Ben and Daniel were named among Billboard’s International Power Players.
