"FEAR Records is very much part of this renaissance in our city.

"We are a Lancaster label supporting North West acts we love, such as Gloria, SHADE, and The France, and helping them to get their voice heard on the national stage."

Darren Mills has previously worked with notable producers Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith, Tyler James) and Fred Cox (Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Lily Allen, Kasabian).
