Burning Shed is an independent record label established in April 2001 by musicians Tim Bowness and Peter Chilvers, in association with duplication company manager and former Noisebox Records boss, Pete Morgan.

Originally envisaged as an artistically focused, online extension of labels such as 4AD, Factory, ECM, DGM and Mute, Burning Shed has become recognised[by whom?] as a distinctive and influential label and music resource in its own right, specialising in promoting singer-songwriter, progressive, ambient/electronica and post-rock music.

Additionally, Burning Shed hosts the official online shops for Porcupine Tree, Lo-Fi Resistance, No-Man, OSI, Medium (Jansen, Barbieri and Karn), 21st Century Schizoid Band, Rothko, Roger Eno, Hugh Hopper and Hatfield and the North.

Since March 2008, Burning Shed has become the official online distributor for Peaceville Records and the new post-progressive imprint Kscope (both Snapper Music divisions).

More recently, Burning Shed has become the host of official stores for Andy Partridge, King Crimson, Thomas Dolby, DGMLive, Bill Bruford, Jethro Tull and others.
