LABREL TO HEAD FACET RECORDS

A&R veteran Kate LaBrel is joining Facet Records as President to facilitate the growth and expansion of the label and develop its roster. She’ll spearhead A&R, marketing and strategy for the company.

Formerly VP of A&R at Warner Bros. Records, she oversaw projects for Nico & Vinz and The Regrettes plus Lukas Graham, whom she signed when she had a dual-role as Director of A&R at Warner Chappell and Warner Bros. Records.

"I am thrilled to have Kate—a true leader and a real record maker—at the helm of our Facet Records team,” said Facet Co-Founder Katie Vinten. “In a world full of uncertainty, Kate’s passion for music, her taste and unwavering integrity is something I am certain of and I'm excited to see Facet Records break the next wave of icons with her in charge.”

Facet Records operates in partnership with Warner Records; Facet Publishing maintains a partnership with Warner Chappell. The label roster includes YDEShawn Wasabi and Diana Gordon; the publishing roster includes The RoommatesBrandon Skeie and Kennedi.

Additionally, Mark Taylor, who has been at Facet since its inception, has been named Senior Manager at Facet Publishing and Vinten’s Black Diamond Artist Management. In the dual role, he’ll shepherd the careers of songwriters and producers such as Caroline Pennell and Zach Skelton.

Taylor joined the A&R team at Warner Bros. Records in 2015 and a year later transitioned to A&R at Warner Chappell. He joined Facet last year.

“In just a year he has elevated both companies in ways I can barely begin to articulate with his accountability, focus, and deep connection with artists," Vinten said of Taylor.
