⏩ One Liners: Saweetie, Key Production, The Script + more


Sony Music Publishing has promoted Nasra Artan to the new position of Head Of International A&R. “I am excited to be stepping into this new role at SMP”, she says. “My passion for creative collaboration runs deep, and I look forward to working closely with our A&R teams to elevate the careers of our songwriters internationally”.


A new survey conducted by Key Production has found that 77% of vinyl buyers would be happy to pay more for a product with a reduced environmental impact. Meanwhile, 69% said they would be likely to buy more records if they were shown to be more environmentally friendly than the current standard. “What we’re seeing is a consumer shift towards a demand for physical music made with reduced impact”, says John Service, Strategy And Sustainability Director at Key Production. “Vinyl can be made more sustainably with new compounds which replace the fossil-fuel ingredients, and packaging can be made with completely recycled materials”.


Keeley Forsyth has announced that she will premiere her new AV show at the ICA in London on 23 May. Tickets are available now.
