2018 a year in review……

2018-change-to-2019-new-year-golden-on-white-studio-room_7189-2021So, we prepare to say goodbye to 2018 an intriguing year for all. Things rarely enter periods of stasis in the music industry, but this year has seen paradigm shifts in politics, economics, and a calling into question of the place the UK occupies on the world stage.

Well, that’s the gloomy bit out of the way! There have been many exciting things this year for all of us here at Wardlaw. Producer Wizzy Wow was nominated for “Best Contemporary Song” at the Ivor Novello Awards, several new acts have joined our roster, we’ve seen lots of new releases from our artists (with exciting tours to boot), and have secured many placements in film, TV and trailers!

Here are some of the highlights from this year……

So to get you all feeling Christmassy, we’ve put together a few festive treats from the Wardlaw catalogue!
