Jeff Sosnow Promoted to Executive Vice President, A&R for Warner Bros. Records & Reprise Records


Warner Bros. Records has announced the promotion of Jeff Sosnow to Executive Vice President, A&R. In his expanded post, he will oversee the signing and developing of outstanding artists for both the Warner Bros. and Reprise labels.  Sosnow, who has served as Senior Vice President, A&R for Warner Bros. Records since 2012, has achieved an impressive track record at the label, working with artists such as Tegan and Sara, Deftones, Mastodon, Mac Miller, AJR, Death from Above, The Head And The Heart, Twin Shadow, Houndmouth and Rufus Du Sol.

“The bedrock of every great label is the strength of its A&R, and Jeff has proven to be one of the most astute and accomplished A&R people in our business,” said Warner Bros. Records Co-Chairman & COO Tom Corson. “I’ve admired his musical taste for years, so it’s a great pleasure to finally be in the same family. In the coming months, we’ll be continuing to build our A&R team into the strongest and most competitive in the industry, and Jeff will be a key player in making WBR the best home for the most creative, culture-shifting artists.”

“It’s always been my mission to give exceptional artists the environment and freedom to do their best work,” said Jeff Sosnow. “Warner Bros. has long been known as an artist-driven company, and with everything happening here today, the future is wide open and incredibly exciting. I want to thank Max Lousada, Tom Corson and the entire fantastic WBR team for their support of our artists and their music, and I’m looking forward to helping deliver amazing records in the months and years ahead.”

Prior to joining Warner Bros. Records, Sosnow worked alongside several notable industry mentors. He started his career in music at American Recordings in 1996, working at the genesis of online digital media entertainment company ARTISTdirect.  Later that year, Sosnow moved to the just-launched Revolution Records (a subsidiary of Giant Records).  In 1997, he began a seven-year A&R stint at Dreamworks Records.  When Dreamworks was folded into Geffen Records in 2004, Sosnow moved to the A&R staff of Interscope Records, experiencing success over the next eight years with acts such as Wolfmother, TV On The Radio, Major Lazer, and The All-American Rejects.
