Warner/Chappell Music Promotes Ryan Beuschel

Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the global publishing arm of Warner Music Group Corp., has promoted Ryan Beuschel to Vice President, A&R. In this position, Beuschel will provide A&R resources and creative support across the publisher’s roster and catalog, and lead in the discovery of new talent, as well as the development of existing songwriters. Beuschel previously served as Director, A&R. He will continue to report to Ben Vaughn, President, Warner/Chappell Nashville.

“I love music and have always been passionate about helping to develop, encourage, and build songwriters’ careers,” said Beuschel. “Warner/Chappell Music is home to the most impeccable talent in the world—across both its roster of songwriters and its incredible staff—and I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a part of this family.”

“Ryan is passionate about songs and the songwriters who create them,” said Vaughn. “He’s a valued member of the Warner/Chappell family, and we’re excited to announce this well-deserved promotion.”

Beuschel works closely with WCM songwriters such as Ashley Gorley, Lady Antebellum, Eric Paslay, Dustin Lynch, Rhett Akins, Nathan Chapman, Randy Montana, and Kelley Lovelace among others.

Prior to Warner/Chappell, Beuschel served as Associate Director of Membership for ASCAP’s Nashville branch. During his time at ASCAP, Beuschel co-founded the ASCAP GPS Project which helps Nashville’s unsigned songwriters navigate the city’s vibrant publishing community. Prior to ASCAP, Beuschel held the position of A&R Manager at Universal Music Group, where he worked with artists on both the MCA & Mercury labels. He began his career in 2005 as an intern for Universal Music Publishing, where he was later named Catalog Coordinator, before moving to the UMG label group in 2007 as A&R Coordinator.

A Michigan native, Beuschel holds a degree in management and finance from Hope College.
