Atlantic Records, A&R

Beginning his career in the music industry by co-founding the notable new music blog Crack in the Road, Ben progressed firstly into establishing his own PR & Radio Plugging company before then heading in house to SJM Concerts. His first role in A&R came through Phil Taggart’s (BBC Radio 1) record label Hometown Records/Sony RED, before then continuing his A&R work at Virgin EMI and then most recently Atlantic Records.

Outside of his A&R work Ben manages a small roster of songwriter/producers, including The 23rd who co-wrote and produced ‘Plot Twist’ with Sigrid, and French multi-instrumentalist artist FKJ.
