Ark Recordings is a London based independent record label, run by Jamie Davis (of Transcopic Records) and Russell Warby (VP of WME Agency UK, Music Power 1001[1]).

The label was launched in 2005 after Transcopic Records went on a hiatus, and Davis joined forces with Warby to create a cross-Atlantic signings imprint. It has since had releases by UK and international acts including Jamaican reggae artist Little Roy, New York based Alberta Cross, Turbo Fruits (feat. Be Your Own Pet's Jonas Stein), Josephine, Sparkadia, Tacks The Boy Disaster, Magic Wands and Liverpool's The 747s.

Releases such as Josphine's "A Freak A" and Little Roy's Nirvana cover of "Sliver" enjoyed extensive UK radio coverage[2][3][4] and press and online coverage.[5][6][7] The label has also had mentions on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music by Steve Lamacq and Nemone.[3][8][9]

In May 2012, Ark Recordings merged with Irish independent label Rubyworks Records.
