Since his father was an executive at EMI Music Publishing, Simon Cowell was able to get his foot in the door in the music industry. Before long, he managed to work his way up through the ranks at EMI Music Publishing. 

Through this early experience, Simon Cowell laid the foundation for his future endeavors. He branched out on his own and started the label, E&S Music. Afterward, he began to work at a company known as Fanfare Records for a duration of eight years. After this record label was sold to BMG, Cowell created another label and named it S-Records. Despite his work with musicians, his first successes were actually based on novelty releases. He earned a significant profit from shows like the Power Rangers and the Wiggles.
