Wild Biscuit is a production company, music label and hot-house of ideas for the creative industries. We are based in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland, an area steeped in Celtic resonance yet only a short hop from the urban chic of Glasgow. Collaboration is our principle value, and we specialize in the unexpected.
