LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess) – Warner Bros. Records has announced that Jeff Sosnow has been promoted to executive vice president, A&R.
In his new role, Sosnow––who has served as svp of WBR since 2012––will oversee the signing and development of artists on both Reprise Records and WBR.
“The bedrock of every great label is the strength of its A&R, and Jeff has proven to be one of the most astute and accomplished A&R people in our business,” said Warner Bros. Records co-chairman and chief operation officer Tom Corson. “I’ve admired his musical taste for years, so it’s a great pleasure to finally be in the same family.”
Sosnow brings a wide breadth of experience to the position as he previously held posts with Interscope Records, Dreamworks Records, American Recordings, and Revolution Records. During that time he helped to build the careers of countless artists including Tegan and Sara, Deftones, Mastodon, Mac Miller, AJR, Death from Above, The Head And The Heart, Twin Shadow, Houndmouth, Rufus Du Sol, TV On the Radio, The All-American Rejects, Major Lazer and Wolfmother.
“It’s always been my mission to give exceptional artists the environment and freedom to do their best work,” said Sosnow. “Warner Bros. has long been known as an artist-driven company, and with everything happening here today, the future is wide open and incredibly exciting. I want to thank Max Lousada, Tom Corson and the entire fantastic WBR team for their support of our artists and their music, and I’m looking forward to helping deliver amazing records in the months and years ahead.”
