Red Wharf started life as a British independent record label. It was established in the mid 1990s by Graham Bowers as a vehicle to publish music and artists whose work was difficult to accurately place in any of the named genres, and consequently publishes works that spans avant garde/experimental/progressive/minimal/ambient/contemporary music. Red Wharf's musical output has now expanded and includes the works of William Henshall and Mel (Dr.Ian D Mellish) as well as that of Graham Bowers. The music label forms one aspect of Red Wharf, other artistic activities include painting, sculpture, stage design for theatre productions, soundscores for film and video, sound for art installations.
