LONDON — The meeting of Earl of Bedlam’s cofounders Caroline Butler and Mark Wesley, as Butler tells it, was almost inevitable. When she was working in media in the U.S. and feeling a bit disenchanted about the direction her life had taken, she met John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s former live-in psychic. “It was about a year before I met Mark that I met the psychic that lived with them at the Dakota in New York,” she recalled. “She told me that I would meet a man in France; he’d have a son and gray hair. Then, when I was in the South of France in 2009, I met a single dad whose hair, when he took off his hat, was gray.”

She set up Earl of Bedlam with Goldsmith College-trained Wesley in 2010, naming the label after the infamous Bethlehem asylum that once stood nearby as a tribute to the local landmark that was also known as “Bedlam.”
