    About Paul

    "I am currently the Head of Europe for Songwriter Relations for Spotify.  I started my career as an Agent spending three years at ITB. I then moved to Polygram Music as an A&R manager. Thereafter I ran the A&R departments at Polydor Records, Mercury records and ran an imprint within Island records. After my stint in A&R at all three frontline Universal labels and its Publishing company I moved to Global Entertainment to run their Music Publishing company and ended up as the SVP for Records and Publishing for Global Entertainment. Some of the artists I signed during this period included Busted, Ian Brown, Noisettes, McFly, The Gaslight Anthem, Suede, The Script, Cast, Shed 7, The Vamps, Teenage Fan Club, Amy MacDonald and the mighty 80's Matchbox B line Disaster.

    I joined Spotify about eighteen months ago to oversee Songwriter Relations for Europe. Our team is the point of contact for Songwriters and Producers and our mission is to represent them creatively on and off the platform and help them with their careers with our various Secret Genius strategies and initiatives."
