GENERAL LABEL MANAGER | EMAIL | WEBSITE

Rich Walker hails from nearby Chester and is General Manager of esteemed label 4AD, home to Daughter, Future Islands, Grimes, The National and more, with the likes of The Breeders, Cocteau Twins, Pixies and Throwing Muses before them. Rich started his musical career while studying at Manchester University, working for label Twisted Nerve, before moving to London for a dotcom job that turned out to be too good to be true. Starting as a music PR in 2001, Rich found himself a dream job at the almost peerless Beggars Group, working his way up from a regional plugger to Head of Press before moving to work full time for one of the Group’s figurehead companies, 4AD – a label that inspired him to want to work in music in the first place.
