A&R in the digital age: ‘Learn with your artist and be open to admitting your mistakes’
Posted on: 8 février 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

In a world of streaming, social networks and the ability for any artist to get their music up on digital platforms, how is the role of the label A&R evolving?
A panel at AIM’s Indie-Con conference in London today addressed the topic of ‘A&R in the digital age’. The speakers included Vidhi Ghandi from Ninja Tune; Darius Van Arman from Secretly Group; Achal Dhillon from Killing Moon; Jane Third from PIAS; and Will Headlam-Wells from Believe. The moderator was Tim Ingham from MBW.
Dillon kicked off by talking about the value of A&R input into an artist’s career: it can be as much about “serving the record” as developing the artist – the happiest scenarios see those two co-incide – and it can be a very long-term process lasting years, rather than just the early period of the partnership.
