About Suspire

The idea for Suspire Records stemmed from Co-owners Daniel Reid and Ben Upton, when they realised there was not a platform for independent artists who were just starting to emerge in the industry. With years of experience between them, they set out to use the layout of a record label, but make it more accessible for artists who may just be starting out.

With a plethora of contacts in the industry, extensive knowledge of social media algorithms and techniques, and modern studio equipment, Suspire offer professional industry standards for a fraction of the price of their competitors.
