Mike Vernon is possibly best known as the founder of Britain’s #1 blues record label, Blue Horizon. Mike has made a huge contribution to the contemporary music scene in general and the blues scene in particular, with a stellar 50 year career as a music executive, top producer, studio owner, label boss, magazine editor, song writer, and occasional singer. During the period that Blue Horizon was distributed by CBS and Polydor, the label issued around 60 singles and more than 100 albums – most of them featuring blues artists. Mike also produced many non-blues related artists, including Level 42, David Bowie and many more.
