About Us

Where is Fish Records located?

We are based in rural Staffordshire, England however we ship worldwide with around 1 in 5 of our current sales being exports.

How long has Fish Records been established?

Fish Records was founded by Neil Pearson in February 1999 and has been trading folk & acoustic music to the general public ever since. Fish Records was taken on by Peter Morgan in April 2012.

How and why did Fish Records start?

The abridged version is in that in 1995 Neil Pearson discovered new artists from reading the Dar-list (a Dar Williams discussion group); this led to frustration in trying to get hold of the CDs, which in turn led to the start of Fish Records. In 2012 Neil moved onto new ventures and I took up the reins to continue the tradition.

As well as the website is there a retail outlet?

The nature of the discs we sell means that it's a niche market and there's no way it would work with a traditional shop as there isn't a concentrated demand - mail order is the only way it works.

How can I contact you?

We have a variety of means available for you to contact us. We also have social media pages, our links to these are within the footer of each page. Please see below for more details:

I'm a singer/songwriter and I'd love to have my disc on your site, what do I need to do?

We welcome receiving CDs for review and whether we'll be able to stock them on the site.

Have a look at the rest of our site and if you think your disc fits in then please feel free to contact us or send a disc to the address above. We can't guarantee we can stock your disc, but we will listen to it and get back to you.
