The UK division of the Warner Chappell music publishing company has promoted Amber Davis to Head Of A&R. She will officially take up the post in October.

“I’ve been working in publishing for more than fifteen years and I’m genuinely excited for what the future holds for Warner Chappell Music”, says Davis. “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”.

Warner Chappell UK MD Mike Smith adds: “Amber’s 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”.

Artists Davis has signed to the publishing company in recent years include Dave, J Hus, Raye, Skepta and Stormzy. She began her career at EMI Music Publishing as an A&R Assistant.
