OUR RESEARCH SHOWS FAIN'S BEEN PROMOTED AT SONY/ATV
3/15/18

It's official: Jacob Fain has been upped to SVP A&R, Head of Research at Marty Bandier's Sony/ATV. In addition to sniffing out songwriting talent, Fain oversees the pubbery's Research & Analytics department (which serves eight offices worldwide) and monitors the temperature of the company humidor. He'll continue to report to Co-President Danny Strick.

Fain has spent 10 years at the pubco; his signings include The Chainsmokers, Leon Bridges, Of Monsters and Men, Nashville artist/scribe Chase Rice and, most recently, hip-hop hitter Russ.

"Jake’s ability to recognize artists and songs that we should pursue has grown considerably as a result of both his A&R talent, and the utilization of data and research," Bandier proclaimed. "This is a well-earned promotion."

Strick added that Fain "has developed a potent combination of A&R instinct and a research and data orientation to bring exceptional talent to our company. I am positive that his new role will enable him to grow even more."

Fain, after expressing his gratitude to Bandier and Strick, declared, "Our analytics work has modernized the artist and writer discovery process to give us the sharpest competitive edge in music publishing and allow us to better serve the creative community. And when I get my new abacus, watch out."
