History[edit]

Mahogany originally started as a WordPress-based music blog in February 2009. ‘The Mahogany Blog’ gained an online following and a year later on 1 July 2010, ‘The Mahogany Sessions’ YouTube channel was launched.[2][7][8]

Partnerships[edit]

In 2017, Mahogany Sessions partnered with Canon on their EOS C200 camera to film a live session which featured rising UK jazz star Alfa Mist.[9][10]

In 2017, Mahogany Sessions also partnered with LVMH and Krug Champagne to create a bespoke music and food festival featuring Michelin-star chef Francis Mallman, and live music from Jacob Banks, Ady Suleiman and Jones.[11][12]

Mahogany Records[edit]

In 2017, Mahogany Records was launched, a full service record label that uses the Mahogany platform to gain exposure for new and emerging talent.[13] Signings include London-based KAWALA,[14] electronic act Model Man, Dallas-based singer Abraham Alexander [15] and singer-songwriter Toby Johnson.
