Westway Music was formed in November 2020 and is based in London, England. Set up by live music agent and producer Neil O'Brien, the label is the new home of The Music Of Theatre. The first release was a new original Christmas song, In My Arms for Christmas - performed by stage and TV star, Lee Mead, written by Adam Dennis and rush released in December 2020. The New Year of 2021 saw the appointment of Rhydian Roberts as A&R Director and Rachel Agnew as Label Manager and the signing of some of the biggest names in UK musical theatre - Kerry Ellis, Ramin Karimloo, Samantha Barks, Cassidy Janson and Joe Stilgoe - all tasked with making their respective musical projects over the next twelve months.

In June 2021, Lee Mead recorded his 40th birthday concert at The London Palladium and Samantha Barks began recording her latest solo album in London with producer Ben Robbins. Joe Stilgoe began to conceive a hugely ambitious orchestral album, with the aim of recording with the world-famous Metropole Orkest in The Netherlands.


Meanwhile, Ramin Karimloo offered his now-legendary film of a concert featuring his Broadgrass Band, made during lockdown at London's Clapham Grand Theatre. It is the aim of the label to allow our artists the opportunity to make the music they love and to create something they are proud of. The Music Of Theatre is something we believe passionately about and something we think compliments the unforgettable live experience of performing in front of audiences.

We aim to release studio recordings, live recordings, and film and to create a truly
international label releasing music from artists worldwide. 2022 looks just as exciting as 2021 has been for the label, with news of many further signings and projects to be announced. We’d love you to join the family - a family of world-class singers, musicians, actors, producers, and designers, who together make up Westway Music!
