OUR HISTORY Sony Music has over 125 years experience of shaping popular culture through the medium of music and the creation of superstars. The company's origins date back to the foundation of Columbia Records, the world's first ever record company, in 1887. Since then, the company has signed and developed some of the world's greatest artists bringing music into people's lives all over the world. The company has also consistently been at the forefront of new technologies – innovating and embracing a myriad of formats on which music is enjoyed and disseminated from the original wax cylinder of the 1880s right through to vinyl records, radio, cassettes, the music video, CDs, iTunes and streaming subscription services of today. Our 125 year history is enshrined in a graphic installation at our Kensington offices. OUR SONY FAMILY Sony Music is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation of America. Through collaboration with our sister companies, we are uniquely placed to create opportunities for our artists and commercial partners in the fields of consumer electronics, film, television, music publishing, computer games & mobile.
