Sam Reas Promoted To Director A&R At Sony/ATV Music Publishing

Sam Reas has been promoted to Director, A&R at Sony/ATV Music Publishing, based in the company’s New York office.

Reas joined Sony/ATV in 2015 as Creative Assistant to SVP, Head of East Coast A&R Rich Christina and was promoted last year to Manager, A&R. In her new role, she will continue to report to Christina.

Since joining Sony/ATV’s New York A&R team, Reas has worked with a number of the company’s writers, including Geoff Warburton, whose song “In My Blood” for Shawn Mendes was nominated for Song of the Year at this year’s Grammy Awards, Imad Royal (MAX, Quinn XCII, Panic! At The Disco), Sam Fischer (Ciara, Spencer Barnett, Clean Bandit) and Interscope recording artist Alexander 23. Her recent signings include rising songwriter Saint Bodhi and pop songwriter Sydney Cubit. She continues to work closely with the Nashville music community and holds several camps each year for the company’s songwriters in partnership with other Sony/ATV offices.

“Sam has rapidly grown into an outstanding A&R executive who has become an essential part of the New York creative team,” said Christina. “She has a real gift for getting the best out of our songwriters and artists, while forging close, trusting relationships with their labels and managers. This is a truly deserved promotion.”

“It’s a thrill to work with our amazing songwriters every day at Sony/ATV,” said Reas. “I am continuously inspired by them as individuals and their ability to move the world with their music. I couldn’t be happier to enter this new role alongside wonderful colleagues and under the leadership of Jon Platt.”
