Snapper Music is an independent record label founded in 1996 by former head of Castle Communications Jon Beecher, Douggie Dudgeon and funded by the deceased Mark Levinson from Palan Music Publishing, son of Paul Levinson. In 1999 Snapper broke away from its Parent company in an MBO in association with ACT and CAI venture capitalists. Later in 2004 Snapper was bought out by Bryan Morrison and in 2005 Jon Beecher (MD) and Douggie Dudgeon (A&R) left Snapper Music and were replaced by Frederick Jude, a former employee of Palan Music Publishing and Snapper Director.

Included amongst the many artists the label has issued albums by are Porcupine Tree, No-Man, Ozric Tentacles, Pink Floyd, W.A.S.P., Cradle of Filth, Fish, Happy Mondays, 3 Colours Red and Amen.

As well as having its own imprint, Snapper Music owns several sub-labels that deal in diverse musical styles - Peaceville (Metal), Kscope (Post Progressive), Charly (R&B, Jazz, Progressive and Blues music).
