“Music is in our DNA and so for the second year running we are proud to be supporting the A&R Awards in 2017,” said Centtrip Music co-founder and CEO, Tony North.
“Centtrip Music’s roster includes over 200 touring artists from Grammy Award winners to break through acts with international currency requirements.
“We see first-hand the talent behind the scenes making it all happen so we look forward to celebrating the achievements of the A&R community on November 1st.”
The A&R Awards 2017 will recognise the cream of the UK’s A&R community across labels, publishers and management companies.
The night promises three extra special moments:
- The Sir George Martin Award. Named in honour of the legendary Beatles producer, this award recognises an individual with a proven track record of truly artist-friendly A&R – combined with commercial success – who continues to sign contemporary hitmakers;
- The Artist Loyalty Award, which celebrates a longstanding relationship between an industry exec and a standout artist who have stood by each other through thick and thin over the years;
- The A&R Icon award, presented to an individual whose actions have truly changed the game for the creative side of the UK music business, and whose influence continues to reverberate today.
Individual ‘A&R Of The Year’ awards will be handed out on the night in separate genre categories including Adult Contemporary, Electronic/Dance, Hip-hop/Grime, Pop/R&B and Rock/Alternative.
Elsewhere, there will be Songwriter and Producer of the Year gongs presented – voted for by a panel of the very best A&R figures in the global industry – in addition to A&R Administrator and Breaking Artist awards.
Team awards will include two Publisher Of The Year categories, in addition to Major Label Of The Year, Independent Label Of The Year and Management Company (The David Enthoven Award).Music Business Worldwide
