What is an A&R?

A&R stands for “Artists and Repertoire”

An Indiy Verified A&R is responsible for finding new recording artists, bringing those artists to the Indiy Platform.

Indiy A&R’s are also responsible for bringing music industry professionals to the platform!

These include but are not limited to, producers, music studios, mixing engineers, mastering engineers, graphic designers, music industry lawyers and even music promotion experts.

Indiy verified A&R staff may go to hear emerging bands play at nightclubs and festivals to scout for talent. Personnel in the A&R division are expected to understand the current tastes of the market and to be able to find artists that will be commercially successful.

For this reason, Indiy A&R colleagues are often also musicians, music journalists or record producers, who take on this role to supplement their usual music industry activities.

How did A&R’s get paid?

Traditionally Artist and repertoire executives and A&R assistants find new talent to sign to Record Labels.

They receive percentage points off album sales in major label deals.

A&R’s are not the only royalty earners when it comes to finding talent.

Sometimes a music industry professional from outside a label can bring an artist to the company and earn similar points.
