By | Published on Wednesday 21 February 2018


Warner Music has promoted Briony Turner and Alec Boateng to become Co-Heads Of A&R at its Atlantic Records UK label.

The wider Atlantic A&R team will now report into Turner and Boateng, although Ed Howard – who leads A&R for the Asylum Records imprint – and Paul Samuels, the label’s VP A&R, will continue to report into the division’s President Ben Cook.

Confirming everything I just said, Cook said: “Briony and Alec are two of the most exciting players in A&R, their dynamism as individuals and potency as a pair means they deliver with our brilliant artists time and again. This credibility makes Atlantic UK a landmark destination for the new generation of smart talent”.

Meanwhile Turner added that “I love working with Alec and I’m very excited about continuing to build on the momentum we’ve collectively gathered over the past few years”, and Boateng chipped in: “Briony is a complete G, together we’re going to focus on developing the unique culture and artist roster at Atlantic”.
