Add Masuch predicts end of A&R

LESS IS NOT MORE: Not surprisingly, the rest of the panelists vehemently disagreed with Masuch’s contention, according to MusicWeek. peermusic VP of Business Development Mary Megan hit back at his claims, asserting that the A&R process is one which is becoming increasingly vital to publishers. “There used to be a real division of labor between the role that record companies played and the role that publishers played," she said. "That has gone. We are doing more A&R work than ever, breaking artists such as Devlin into the mainstream, and although the Internet has the ability to help drive consumption, the role of A&R and the value it brings should not be underestimated.” (1/27a)
