Melkweg (M6 Panel Room) | Lijnbaansgracht 234A, Amsterdam
A&R Bruce Carbone (Def Jam) shares his vision on the past, present and future of being an A&R. Carbone will talk about his ten years with Cash Money Records and what artists and music professionals can learn from their story, and about A&R-ing timeless hits, how he helped Timbaland build a studio early in his career, and working closely with artists ranging from 2Chainz to Akon, and from Missy Elliott to David Banner.
Carbone currently works at Def Jam and is A&R on several projects on G.O.O.D. Music. He discusses the evolution of breaking songs and approaching major music projects, having longevity as an artist, how his work changed over the years, and his vision on how the music industry in general and being an A&R in particular will evolve over the next few years.
