FMR Records is an English music company record label comprising the major record label, FMR Music. Founded by current CEO Trevor Taylor in 1972. It is a specialist record label providing Jazz and improvisational percussion music.
The label started off in the back of a music retail store in Chelmsford, called 'Soundworld'. It began by selling a small range of guitars, this quickly grew into a huge variety of instruments, and soon after ending up buying out the other businesses in the shop, and taking 100% control. Within 6 years over 30 'Soundworlds' were open all over the UK, and the business was quickly expanding. Due to the unexpected success of Soundworld, the company decided to reach into the market and launch a record label directly aimed at the jazz and improvised music market. Many of the releases prominently feature percussion.
