Meet Us

In House is a company that specialises in printed press, online and radio promotion in the UK. We like to think that we cover the more interesting ends of the guitar-based and dance music spectrums. We basically just promote music we really like and are pleased to have such a strong roster that includes artists as diverse as Low, Fuck Buttons, Woods, Deerhoof, Charles Bradley, Nathan Fake, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Rodriguez and many more.

Will
Will Lawrence, Press Manager

Having helped run Manchester DIY label and club night Akoustik Anarkhy (which he’s still involved with) Will joined In House in 2004, starting out stuffing records in envelopes he soon got the knack for this press malarkey and has since headed up campaigns for the likes of The Go! Team, Fuck Buttons, Rodriguez, Low, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Avi Buffalo, Tracey Thorn, Charles Bradley, Deerhoof, Panda Bear, Gold Panda, Field Music and Lee Hazelwood. A sucker for a good harmony, fuzzy geetars, melodic bleeps and a decent brew.

Alex
Alex Hall, Radio Plugger / Online Press

Starting off behind the counter of Piccadilly Records, Alex got going at IHP packaging records and playing music from the murkier end of the spectrum. Before settling in the North, he travelled across Russia by train, risked America by Greyhound and tried his hand at being a struggling journalist in London. Now working online and radio campaigns for labels including: Sacred Bones, Crammed Discs, Nyege Nyege Tapes, Luaka Bop, Dais, Ghostly, Finders Keepers and Stones Throw, he also runs his own label alongside radio shows on NTS and Melodic Distraction.

Jonny Colclough, Online & Press

Originally from Teesside, Jonny moved to Manchester for University, and after working varied roles pulling pints, chopping onions or building furniture, he finally landed an intern spot at In House. After spending many moons scanning magazines, making brews and taking the post, we’ve finally let him loose. In his spare time you’ll find him hosting ambient gatherings with OHR, trawling Bandcamp and YouTube for new finds and playing the odd game of 5-a-side.
