Full Time Hobby is a proudly independent label that has been running since January 2004. Although not restricted to any particular genre, we aim to release music that makes the heart beat and the ears ring. 2014 marked our 10th anniversary as a label, where we hosted three nights of music at London’s Southbank Centre, a show in Paris and Amsterdam as well as a “Bug” night at the BFI.

We do accept demos but as we are a small label it takes us a while to respond. If you haven’t heard from us it’s probably because we don’t think the music is quite right for FTH, but it does take us a while to get around to listening to everything.

Please include an email address and preferably a stream of your music if you’re sending through to our info@fulltimehobby.co.uk address. If we can listen to a link and download if we like it, that usually works best (Soundcloud is always a winner with us but there are other good options). If you do want to send a CD, around 3 – 4 of your best songs makes sense along with a small amount of info about what you are up to as a performer or band.

If you don’t know much about the music we release, maybe we’re not the right home for your music. Have a listen to some of the artists we work with and see if it would be something that could fit in with what we’re about. We don’t stick to any one genre, but you should get a feel for the general thread running through the music we work with.

We would love to hear from you if you have comments on what we’re up to. We really appreciate feedback and constructive criticism so please send us your thoughts to: info@fulltimehobby.co.uk or even better put pen to paper and mail to us (address to the right) and prove the art of letter writing isn’t dead. You can of course find us on all the usual social networks.
