Gatfield is the former boss of Sony Music UK, and has also worked at the very top of US and UK labels including Polygram, Island Records and EMI.
Gatfield recently set up his own company, Twin Music Inc., to offer seed/angel investment for both music creatives and emerging start-ups.
Not a lot is known about Twin so far, so we’ll be asking Gatfield plenty about the new venture, his ambitions and, of course, his experiences as one of the most influential British music executives of the past 20 years.
