RON PERRY has been appointed Pres./Head of A&R of SONGS MUSIC PUBLISHING, by Founder/CEO MATT PINCUS. Formerly Head of A&R at SONGS, PERRY will continue to report to PINCUS and will oversee contemporary acquisitions for the company, including all writer and artist signings and song-plugging activities. He will also continue to manage SONGS Pop, Urban, and Rock joint ventures. PERRY will be based in NEW YORK.
PINCUS said, "SONGS MUSIC PUBLISHING is well positioned to be the best full service, global music publishing company for current writers in the changing market. RON's unique combination of creative talent, business acumen, and top-notch management capabilities are unparalleled among executives of his generation. This enhanced role for RON, who has built SONGS with me since I started it, underscores the strength and uniqueness of the company. It's a great day for SONGS."?
PERRY added, "I'm not sure that MATT and I ever imagined that SONGS would become one of the leading independent publishers in such a relatively short period of time. However, along with our partner CARIANNE MARSHALL, and the great team of young people alongside us at SONGS, we have always envisioned a company that provides the highest level of creative service for all of our writers in a world where true creative publishing is increasingly a rarity. I am thankful to MATT for this opportunity to expand my leadership role at SONGS and to continue to work with him and our incredibly talented staff to further SONGS MUSIC PUBLISHING's role as the best destination in the industry for contemporary writers."
