JONES TO LEAD SONY A&R
2/17/22

Walter Jones will oversee Sony Music Publishing’s U.S. A&R as Executive Vice President, Head of A&R, beginning 2/22.

The former Co-Head of A&R at Universal Music Publishing Group will work closely with the U.S. creative team to further support emerging and established songwriters. In addition, he will work to advance SMP’s overall A&R strategy and generate new opportunities on behalf of its roster. He will be based in Los Angeles office and report to Sony Music Publishing Chairman and CEO Jon Platt.

“Walter is a gifted A&R executive with incredible creative insight,” Platt said. “I’ve witnessed his growth as a leader and his ongoing dedication as a mentor to new and accomplished songwriters and creatives. Walter’s collaborative approach will be instrumental to our success, and I look forward to working alongside him to deliver a superior level of service to SMP’s songwriters.”

Jones joined UMPG as VP, Creative in 2017, after working as VP, Urban A&R at Sony/ATV. Among his signings have been H.E.R., Lil Baby, Alessia Cara, G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky.
