Respected music industry veteran Robin Godfrey-Cass (pictured) has been appointed MD of the UK office of Round Hill Carlin.
Godfrey-Cass was initially hired to head up creative at Round Hill/Carlin out of London after Round Hill officially closed its acquisition of independent publisher Carlin Music last January.
Godfrey-Cass has over 30 years’ experience in the music industry.
He became the youngest ever appointed MD of a major publisher in 1985 when, at age 30, he was named Managing Director of Warner Chappell Music UK.
He was responsible for signing the likes of Eric Clapton, Radiohead, among many others.
Round Hill Music was founded in 2012 by Josh Gruss.

Josh Gruss, CEO, Round Hill Music, said: I’ve known Robin for eight years and it’s safe to say he’s a good guy, perhaps the best, to have on your team when it comes to creative and deal sourcing in the UK.
“We’re proud to have him running our London operation and breathing creative life back into the Carlin operation.”
“I am thrilled to have been given the mandate to lead the combined UK company into an exciting new future.”
Godfrey-Cass added “I have spent over a year with Round Hill Carlin during a period of integration of the two companies.
“I am thrilled to have been given the mandate to lead the combined UK company into an exciting new future.
“With my dynamic UK team and the support of the US, there is nothing that we cannot achieve going forward.
“I would like to thank Josh for giving me this opportunity to be part of this exciting company”.Music Business Worldwide
