Alumna Amber Davis, who completed her music degree in 2003, has been appointed as the Head of A&R at Warner Chappell Music UK, the global music publishing company of Warner Music Group.
Amber joined Warner Chappell Music in 2014 as Creative Director and has worked with and signed an abundance of renowned talents from the UK contemporary music scene including Stormzy, Dave and J Hus.
Renowned music publishing company Warner Chappell Music is home to a number of notorious songwriters and boasts a rich collection of contemporary hits and influential standards.
Speaking about the new role, Amber said: “It’s a real honour to be asked to take on this role working with our amazing A&R team…I’ve been working in publishing for more than 15 years and I’m genuinely excited for what the future holds.
“The songwriters we have are what make our business thrive and to work with some of the most talented writers and managers in the business and represent their songs is a real privilege.”
Managing Director of Warner Chappell Music Mike Smith added: “Amber is one of the standout A&Rs of her generation and yet one of the most modest people you’ll ever meet. Her role in the UK urban scene cannot be underestimated, but she’s also proved adept at working with writers from Girls Aloud to Celeste. It’s been fantastic to work with her over the years and I can’t wait to see what she achieves in this new role.”
