The Echo Label was an independant record label started by Chrysalis Group in 1994, and linked with Pony Canyon in Japan. The Chrysalis Group were the original owners of Chrysalis Records, which they sold to EMI.

In 2005, The Echo Label recorded a loss of over £2.0 million. The decision was taken to restructure the business at the beginning of the 2006 financial year, into an “incubator” for developing writer-artists with the intention of “upstreaming” them to a major label. The signings which resulted from this included Bat for Lashes, Steven Lindsay, Rosalie Deighton, Jacob Golden, Sarabeth Tucek and Forever Like Red.

They would continue to release records for their established artists Feeder and Morcheeba. However, in a Chrysalis Group report dated 15 August 2008, it was stated that The Echo Label had performed below management’s expectations and had not upstreamed any artists in this period, other than Bat For Lashes who were transferred over to Parlophone in early 2007. Feeder had one more album left on the contract, and this resulted in Silent Cry, being the last Feeder album released by Echo. Feeder have now formed their own label called Big Teeth Music.
