Quantcast
SONY/ATV UPS
A&R PAIR

Sony/ATV has promoted Danielle Middleton and Sam Reas to Manager, A&R, based in the pubbery's NYC office. Both report to SVP Head of East Coast A&R Rich Christina.

Middleton (at right in the photo), who joined the company in 2014, was most recently the department's Senior Coordinator. She works with such writers and producers as Clicknpress (Chris Brown, J.Cole), Swagg (H.E.R., Kehlani, Alicia Keys), Kim Vierra (Daddy Yankee, Pitch Perfect), Corey Chorus (Demi Lovato, Rihanna), Nikki Vianna and Bkorn (DJ Khaled, Travis Scott).

Reas started in 2015 as Administrative Assistant. She works closely with the Nashville community (her most recent signing is Nashville-based RCA pop artist Stela Cole) as well as liaising with tunesmiths and producers like JR Rotem (Fall Out Boy, Gwen Stefani, Keith Urban), Sam Fischer (Clean Bandit), Leland (Kelsea Ballerini, Selena Gomez), Geoff Warburton (Shawn Mendes) and more.

"In their time at Sony/ATV Sam and Danielle have shown a strong passion for artist discovery and writer development, which are qualities so vital to our business," declared Co-President Danny Strick. "There is nothing more rewarding than being able to support and encourage executive talent within your own ranks, which is why I am so excited about this announcement. These promotions will give them both the opportunity to continue to grow at Sony/ATV."

We have yet to be informed as to Sam's and Danielle's taste in cigars.
