One day, I want to look back at this picture, smile wide and say, “We made it”. (Que Drake’s latest hit)
My name is Marcus, and I’m part of the A&R department here at Berklee in Valencia. A pictures worth a thousand words, however cliche that is, so I’ll keep this post brief and to the point. Today, we held the first A&R meeting and discussed roles and how we would be conducting the interviews for our potential “signees” (technically, they don’t get signed but for lack of a better word…) SURPRISINGLY. the meeting went exceptionally well, was structured and formalized, and flowed from beginning to end. I’m a big fan of surprises, especially good ones. Needless to say, it was a very constructive meet and I feel much more at home with my fellow A&R’s. I think we will be ready to handle the work load for the remaining of the semester, and I’m looking forward to being in the studio with the artists, pushing them beyond their limits.
Cause thats what I do, I push.
Now here’s some music I was listening to while I wrote this,
