Edition is 10 Today!

Today, it is 10 years since we released our first album, an album of improvised piano duets with label boss Dave Stapleton and Matthew Bourne called Dismantling the Waterfall.

Over the last 10 years there's been an incredible amount of change in the industry, Myspace came and went. People said the CD would die in 5 years. Downloads were perceived to be the future dominant platform... and now we have streaming, a platform that looks set to save the industry.

Socially and culturally the world is a very different place with so much uncertainty - the one thing that remains consistent in all the turmoil is the music. Of course, music and the musicians who play it has always been and always will be our driving force and our motivation in building Edition. 

Our goal for the next years isn't going to change: to release great new music from artists who represent the vast and diverse creative European music scene;  rethinking every process to make it happen for the good of the musicians. And there's no shortage of great music and talent!

There are so many people to thank - global partners, distributors and media (you know who you are) but most of all we want to thank the fans for listening and the musicians for continuing to produce incredible music - without either, there is no scene.
