How would you describe your job? What are some typical tasks for you?
I’d say that I act as the hub, being involved in all the operations of the label. Day-to-day I am talking with our artists, distribution teams, our in-house promotional teams, radio teams, creatives, publishing partners and our international network. I’ll be co-ordinating everything from recording and getting masters delivered through to it being available to the public.
Another big part of my role is look to the future and plan how we are going to take what artists are creating further. In some cases, when I have these conversations, there won’t be any immediate tasks for me to do and it’s more a case of being presented demo recordings. And in those situations, I’ll have to go away, listen to the track, and start to think big picture about how we move that song on to the next step.
I’ll also spend quite a bit of time looking at data, and that can come from streaming platforms, physical sales, or social media engagement.
