FROM HERE RECORDS is a non-profit cultural organisation formed in 2015 by Nicola Kearey and Ian Carter. Our intent is to show the relevancy of traditional music forms in mainstream culture and we continually look for opportunities to do that. We undertake artist residencies, music and audio commissions, and anything else we like in order to make our work. It’s also a label, and production house for any other audio content we want to make more widely available.

Ian Carter makes electronic music as EAN (Cosmic Bridge, Hospital Records), and oversees the sound production, recording, mixing and mastering. His work as a cutting-edge producer has led to remix commissions with Thom Yorke, Ian Brown, Sia, Eliza Carthy, The Memory Band and he co-produced Ghostpoet’s Mercury-nominated debut album. Experienced in getting the best out of performers, and using production tools in innovative ways, Ian has a very broad and deep expertise across many genres.

Nicola Kearey has worked with acts like Wolf People and the Besnard Lakes as well as being an artist in her own right with Stick In The Wheel. Recent writing/speaking commissions include The Guardian, BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, Clashmusic, fRoots magazine, and Musicity at RIBA. With a background in advertising and photography, she handles all the project production, design and imagery.

We both compose and perform music and audio and we’re interested in making good work out of fruitful collaborations. From Here provides the very best in forward thinking music.
