Tin Angel Records is a British independent record label.



Tin Angel Records has founded in 2007 with Devon Sproule's Keep Your Silver Shined . The album received critical acclaim and led to Sproule appearing live on Later... with Jools Holland. [1] Other notable records for the label in 2007 were by Paul Curreri and Adrian Crowley, with Crowley's album Long Distance Swimmer receiving a nomination for the 2007 Choice Music Prize.

The label has since released records by the likes of Baby Dee, Charlie Parr and Evening Hymns (whose album Spectral Dusk was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize [3] ) and branched into book publishing in 2012 with the release of Little Annie's autobiography You Can't Sing The Blues While Drinking Milk.
