Mike Hemsley


Mike has been working in heavy music since joining Hassle Records for work experience in 2005 and then stubbornly refusing to leave for the next nine years, getting to work directly with the likes of Cancer Bats, Alexisonfire, Four Year Strong, Alkaline Trio, Rolo Tomassi, We Are The Ocean, August Burns Red, and loads more. Next stop was a brief stint at Red Bull Records, working with Beartooth and Heaven’s Basement, before he moved to PledgeMusic where he’s been lucky enough to work with the broadest spectrum of heavy music, taking in While She Sleeps, UK Subs, The Mission, The Darkness, Opeth, and an ever increasing list of others. Mike is quite confident in saying he likes Snot more than you do.

“My background in rock music has always been in the independent sector, and so I’m ecstatic to be asked to play a part in a new, exciting, and, most importantly, independent awards ceremony celebrating the music and scene we all hold dear.”
