Mescal is a label/management/booking that produces and follows through new musicians and valuable projects, that very often are underestimated or ignored by the official music industry in Italy, contributing to the production and promotion of real Italian contemporary music. Mescal does not specialize in one musical genre but crosses boundaries and estimates eclectic approaches to music and its artists have a first class treatment and are followed step by step.

Mescal started out its overall activities in 1993 and began producing records as a label in 1997. Since the beginning it has been fully involved in the management of the artists as well as the live section.

Regarding the management, bands with a record contract with Sony and Universal are followed closely through the processes of record production, promotional strategies, special events, publishing rights and research of sponsors or endorsment that do not damage the artists' image.

Mescal has offices in Milan, Bologna and Turin but the main office where live production, contracts and press office duties are carried out is located in Nizza, near Asti, a beautiful location on the hills and vineyards of Monferrato, in the region of Piedmont in Italy.

Mescal is also behind Italy's best itinerant festival "Tora!Tora!", a phenomenal tool of self promotion for the vibrant music scene of the peninsula. An on the road adventure that started out in 2001 kept tightly together by Afterhours' lead singer Manuel Agnelli, a communal experience of travelling from various cities to Italy's beautiful faraway locations, playing in front of an ever-growing audience of music enthusiasts of the national scene.

Mescal Libri is a recently born small publishing house that debuted with the self-obsessed tales of Subsonica's keyboard player Davide "Boosta" Dileo and a collection of photographs and diary notes of "Tora!Tora!" participating artists, whilst Mescal Video published a dvd/vhs of 'Pornodrome' that features Subsonica's frontman Samuel Romano and rocker Dan Solo from Marlene Kuntz, ‘Cielo Tangenziale Ovest’ live by Subsonica and the live DVD from Fiamma Fumana and the Mondine di Novi Choir titled ‘Di madre in figlia’ (‘From mother to daughter’).

Mescal is the brainchild of mister Valerio Soave.
