After trying to get signed as a band and then setting up their own record label, brothers Matt and Lee Parsons, 40 and 38, founded Ditto in 2006 to help unsigned artists publish their music. The Liverpool-based company helps to distribute music, as well as working on social media, press and graphic design for clients that have included Ed Sheeran, Royal Blood and Stormzy. Sales grew to £7.6m in 2017 thanks to international expansion and its Record Label in a Box product, which helps clients quickly set up their own record label. Having opened offices this year in Mexico and Spain, it plans to expand into Russia and Poland in the new year.
