Whirlwind Recordings was established in 2010 by recording artist, freelance bassist, composer, bandleader & producer Michael Janisch, a US native who relocated to London in 2005 and created the label specifically for the worldwide release of Purpose Built, his debut solo album. Since then the label has grown considerably releasing an eclectic catalogue of adventurous and visceral music that spans genres, is rooted in originality and has key emphasis on the improvised. The artists on the label range from established masters to guiding lights of their generation to undiscovered stars in the making. All About Jazz described Whirlwind as “London’s label of the moment.”
Bridge Arts Management provides touring and consultancy services to both the label and selected groups.
