    The Silva Screen Music Group is a London based independent record company which is home to one of the world’s leading film and television specialist soundtrack labels, Silva Screen Records. Founded by owner and MD Reynold D’Silva in 1986, the group retains a catalogue of over 500 titles and over 10,000 master recordings and has offices in New York and Paris. The company’s repertoire of original soundtracks spans a wide range of titles, ranging from the Gerry Anderson catalogue (Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet), the cult TV series The Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe to reissues of classics such as John Barry’s score for The Ipcress File and the music for the cult film The Wicker Man. It also includes contemporary major film and TV successes such as Blade Trinity, The Departed, Dear John, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and six bestselling score albums of the music from the current Doctor Who TV revival. Core to the company’s business however has been the extensive programme of re-recording film music from the past 100 years. Most music scored for cinema in the Hollywood era and beyond had been ill-served when commercially released. Tracking down the composers themselves, unearthing lost music manuscripts, contacting relatives and the estates of these musical geniuses has been a labour of love for the company. Initial projects included new recordings of the complete scores of The Big Country and Lawrence Of Arabia, all released to critical acclaim. The result is a film and TV catalogue of close to 3,000 tracks, digitally recorded and played by outstanding musicians, which breathes new life once again into some of the most evocative music ever written. Key to the plaudits received has always been that the recordings are created with the listener in mind as a stand alone work rather than just a film score. The company has also branched out into other musical forms with great success. The now world renowned soprano Lesley Garrett signed to the newly formed Silva Classics label in 1993 and enjoyed massive sales success throughout the decade. Amongst her numerous gold and silver albums for the label she received the Gramophone Award for Best Selling Classical Artist Of The Year for the release Soprano In Red. Other artists include The Brodsky Quartet and world renowned Chilean tenor Tito Beltran. The acquisition of the famed jazz/world label CMP – Creative Music Productions has added material by artists of the stature of Jack Bruce (Cream), Andy Summers (The Police), Trilok Gurtu and David Torn to the roster. HipBop records began life in New York in 1994 as an outlet for contemporary jazz/funk/fusion and established itself as a cutting edge label whose featured artists read like a roll-call of legend. They include, Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea, Al Jarreau, Chaka Khan, Tom Browne, Lenny White, Bob James, Gato Barbieri and Patrice Rushen. The Times Square label in the US has been another successful Silva Screen venture. A highly respected world music roster, its artists, past and present include critically acclaimed performers such as the Portugese singer Mariza, Miami based Cuban singer, Albita and Portugese artist Sara Tavares. Silva Screen’s label imprint So Recordingslaunched in the autumn of 2010 with debut release, Long Live The Duke & The King by The Duke & The King delivering an immediate chart placing on The UK Chart Top 75 Albums and a top 10 Indie Chart berth. Since then the roster has continued to expand and includes American singer/songwriter par excellence Joshua Radin who has enjoyed top 40 US chart action and made a major impact in the UK on the charts with his fourth album Underwater. The Chevin are set to follow this road to success, a Yorkshire four piece who have won over critics and fans on both sides of the Atlantic with their shimmering anthemic sound that has led to major UK and US TV appearances including Late Show With David Letterman. Their cheer-leading song Champion is the soundtrack to the Premiership Football Season 2013-2014 for William Hill’s mobile betting TV campaign. Danny & The Champions Of The World led by Danny Wilson are the real deal, a genuinely rare species, a rock ‘n’ roll band who deliver pulsating riffs alongside songs with timeless melodies and heartbreaking ballads. The god-like sound of Canadian band Zeus is a magical synthesis of the music of yesterday and today with rambling twists whilst all-out Aussie rockers All Mankind have been blowing the roof off venues all round Europe in the last twelve months. And if that’s not enough, Yorkshire alt-rock band Dinosaur Pile-Up are fast establishing a solid live reputation worldwide after the launch of their critically lauded album Nature Nurture. The label will grow even stronger this autumn with the second album titled Music To Make Boys Cry from singer-songwriter Diana Vickers, whose debut single and album topped the charts in 2010. Two years on from the formation of the label, SO What? launched in the autumn of 2012 with the signing of chart topping, platinum selling, singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Cardle. It proved an immediate success with his sophomore album The Fire hitting the UK top ten and registering at number one on the Independent Album Chart. The autum As the music industry evolves at a breath-taking pace Silva Screen remains at the forefront with their entire catalogue of recordings available for download and recordings being marketed and promoted worldwide for usage in advertising, TV programmes, mobile ringtones, synchs and feature films. 25 years after its formation, the company has lost none of the passion that drove it into being with innovation and quality the constant.
