Behind Danny Roberts (A&R manager, Decca Records)

Oct 01, 2018, 07:34 AM

Welcome to the Behind the Business podcast. A new music business focused podcast where I chat with an eclectic mix of people from the music business about them, what they do and why they do it.

This episodes chat is with Danny Roberts. I went to University with Danny many moons ago so we go a fair way back. Danny is currently a senior A&R manager at Decca Records (Part of Universal).

Danny's roster includes a diverse range of acts such as Aurora, The Wandering Hearts and Rhys Lewis along with recent signings The Tesky Brothers and Fieh.

Listen to Auroras just recently released 2nd album 'Infections of a Different Kind Step 1' via all the standard platforms...its a corker.

I was interested to find out what goes into the A&R process at a major label of this type and also to get a more personal insight into how Danny goes about doing this job.

It was a hot day at the end of July when we met and England had just lost in the semi Final of the world cup but we pressed on regardless and had a great chat that I hope you enjoy listening to.
