  • Innocent Records is a pop record label created to cater to for EMI's Virgin Records more Pop oriented acts. Following the success of the Spice Girls, Virgin Records decided to delve into the Pop market. In doing so they poached Hugh Goldsmith from RCA Records. They let him launch his own Virgin Records offshoot. His first signing was Billie Piper, followed by Martine McCutcheon, along with several dance acts Todd Terry to name one. The label continued to thrive well into the mid 00s with Atomic Kitten & Blue achieving Platinum sales. In early 2005, Hugh Goldsmith returned to Sony BMG to set up Brightside Records. Not long after Hugh's departure Innocent Records was shifted from Virgin Records to the newly formed Angel Music Group. EMI's newly created commercial division, which also handles EMI Classics. For a time in the mid 00s Angel Music Group also licensed Hollywood Records for the UK. Innocent Records most notable success during this period was Blue's Simon Webbe's double platinum solo album Sanctuary. The Innocent Records imprint seemed to have vanished by the late 00's being replaced by the revived Charisma Records label, itself disappeared after limited success with pop acts such as Alphabeat, etc. Wikipedia
