ETHOS

The Tileyard ethos, in a word, is Community.

Since 2010 a creative community has formed organically at Tileyard through the mindful curation of Nick Keynes, Managing Director, Tileyard Studios. Producers, artists and songwriters formed the first cohort and within a few years a dozen recording studios had been built and leased. An astonishing achievement on its own given the supposed downturn in the fortunes of the music industry.

But the community continued to grow. More studios were built and support businesses started to see the benefit of being close to the talent so labels, publishers, managers, agents, PR and marketing services began to take root.

Then the new technology companies arrived. Music and media platforms, apps, data management and marketing machines. In 2017 Tileyard continues to grow with the launch of Tileyard Education, new buildings coming online, more studios being built and exciting new sites being considered in other parts of the UK and around the world.

In this community coffees and conversations turn into partnerships and collaborations which turn into new songs, new recordings, new business and new friendships. People help each other out with equipment, experience, space and contacts. People rope each other into projects wherever possible. People are Tileyard and Tileyard is Community at work.
