Acer Records is an artist driven independent record label, based in Hazel Grove, Cheshire, England, United Kingdom.

Originally named after Tim Scott’s private studio facility - Acer Studios, set up initially in 2002 for the recording and release in 2003 of his debut album Bald on the Inside [1], [2] and as a front to administer the publishing rights and distribution of his solo compositions. [3]

Bald on the Inside was distributed through Borders Books & Music Stores throughout the UK, which backed by a UK wide in store CD signing tour, generated enough sales to put it inside their top 200 sellers list on occasion. [4]

The name was changed to Acer Records in order to separate the label and the underlying core company in 2008 with the release of Tim Scott’s second album Guitar Mashing [5]

The grouped release of the Amy Jane, Angel Dust and 4:AM singles and the digital release of Bald on the Inside all in November 2009, were all encompassed under the Acer Records umbrella. [6]
