    About Mark Dowling

    Throughout his 20-year career Mark has worked wholly in the independent sector. 14 of those years have been spent as a director of Absolute Label Services. Formed in 1998, Absolute was one of the first label services businesses. The company successfully empowers independent artists by managing their businesses and taking them to market with all rights remaining with the client.

    Throughout its history, Absolute has enhanced the careers of established and emerging artists alike across a diverse range of genres. Clients include All Saints, Dappy, 67, Lethal Bizzle, Steps, Ram Records, Krept & Konan, Sneakbo, Alice Cooper, Alesha Dixon, KSI, McFly and many more.

    All clients have access to Absolute’s market leading portal, Absolute Project, which gives 24/7 access to a wealth of data incorporating both physical and digital sales. The latest addition to the portal is the Absolute Insider tool – an AI system that notifies clients of significant events during a campaign, such as a track being added to a playlist, played on the radio, leaping up the charts and much more.

    Prior to Absolute, Mark was head of A&R at Multiply/Telstar records.
