Easy Listening Records is a community interest company and was founded by James Mabbett and James Heselwood to support and release music by artists who face barriers to working within the traditional music industry.

We currently manage and release the music of Ultimate Thunder who have seen recent success with bookings at this year’s Kendal Calling and appearances on BBC Breakfast, ITN news and articles by the NME, Guardian, Quietus and Big Issue. 

Ultimate thunder were formed by James Heselwood in 2012 and began working with musician and producer James Mabbett in 2020, releasing their first full length album in 2022. Their second album is due for release later in 2024. 

We are currently seeking funding and donations to cover the costs associated with recording, touring and weekly rehearsals with Ultimate Thunder, as well as funding to work on further projects with new artists.
