The A&R Awards in association with Abbey Road Studios returns to London on November 6th 2018. A number of individual and team awards are up for grabs, for those working in independent and major sectors across labels, publishing and management.
We are delighted to be supporting the Major Label award.
Conrad Withey, CEO of Instrumental, said: “We are so proud that Instrumental’s scouting tech is being deployed by labels from all three majors and are constantly impressed by the quality of A&R executives within those teams.
“While we focus on creating world-class tools to power artist discovery, it is their hard work, creativity and experience that is critical in turning that early stage talent into global stars.
