Powis Music Limited
Developing acts and building careers
Powis Music Limited was set up in July 2008 by Tim Medcraft - ex-Head of A&R at Bucks Music Group - and his business partner Simon Platz (MD and owner of Bucks Music Group Limited).
The key aim of the company is to "Develop Acts and Build Careers" - something which both partners have been successful at doing over the years
During Tim's 10 years at Bucks Music he signed Professor Green, Wizard Sleeve, Matthew Herbert, D-Style (including TC, Jakes, Mensah, Chasing Shadows), Shogun Audio (Ed Friction, Alix Perez), Arts & Crafts (Broken Social Scene, Timber Timbre) and Full Time Hobby (Rolo Tomassi, etc) to name a few.
He has also signed and worked with Chase and Status, Sub Focus and Multiverse (inc Joker)
Tim continues to work with his Bucks signings as he feels it is vitally important not to sign someone and then walk away from them when a new role or opportunity comes along - something which his business partner Simon also agrees with.
His current Powis roster includes Andy C's Oakden Music, Yoyo Acapulco (run by ex Fierce Panda A&R Guy Lowman - first act What Now already causing waves in Kerrang!), Dr Meaker, Streetlife DJs, Ant Miles, Rinse FM DJ Marco Del Horno, Alex Lodder pka SessioNoisses, Red Wax from Memphis, Something Nothing Records' publishing arm and he has recently signed a deal with the brilliant Terrorbird Media from Brooklyn.
In the year from September 2009 to end September 2010, Tim's writers and acts sold over 1 million single downloads in the UK alone with 4 top 10 singles (including two top 5s) and a #2 album for Professor Green (with whom he has worked with for more than 6 years).
