    About Sam Potts

    Sam is Head of Radio Promotions at Columbia Records UK heading up the leading major label's radio department with an artist roster including Calvin Harris, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, 21 Savage, Mark Ronson, Daft Punk, and George Ezra. 

    In Nov 2012 Sam founded Young Guns Network along with Remi Harris MBE, a professional network for young people in the media industry. The organisation has since hosted regular events with some of leading media companies in the UK such as Spotify, BBC, Sony Music, Shazam as well as curated international conference events and consultancy work with leading youth brands. 

    In 2015, Sam and Remi created Buzz Jam, a completely new concept in music and tech described as a mix between a ‘Hack Day’ and a ‘Jam Session’ using the skills of tech and music to create, improvise and collaborate. The event, held in partnership with Red Bull Studios London paired teams of computer coders and musicians over 32 hours to create six new musical instruments for one unique performance.
