Criminal Records - a Scottish label for prisoners

Singer Jill Brown has started a record label Criminal Records in an effort to give a voice to jailhouse Scots, BBC reports. "It's to plant a seed of hope to let them see that their lives can be better" - Brown says. An inmate named Ryan (in his early 30s) says that music during his incarceration "means everything really. It gives me something positive to do every day. When I'm in my cell it gives me something to look forward to - hopefully using it to keep me out of the jail when I'm outside".
