REPUBLIC RECORDS has promoted NATE ALBERT to SVP/A&R, reporting to EVP/A&R ROB STEVENSON. Since 2008, ALBERT held the position of VP/A&R.
"NATE's ear for talent is undeniable," stated STEVENSON. "I first met him while he was playing guitar for THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES, and we have a long history together. He approaches his post from an artist perspective, and he stays in tune with the myriad needs of a band or performer. As a result, when it comes to A&R, his passion and understanding are unparalleled."
REPUBLIC RECORDS Chairman/CEO MONTE LIPMAN added, "NATE remains a cornerstone of our A&R department. His passion and diligence with all of our artists make him a franchise player."
"I want to stay on the same path, but continue forging further ahead," added ALBERT. "For me, it's about bridging the gap between the business side and the artist side. I want to mentor the acts that I sign and help elevate them to the level they aim to reach. I get excited hearing fresh talent, and it's incredible to be at a company that emphasizes fostering careers. MONTE and AVERY started REPUBLIC at their kitchen table, and they still run it now. They've provided the best launch pad for young acts to become stars. It's incredible being a part of that."
A Platinum-selling musician, songwriter, and producer himself, ALBERT helped form THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES at 13 years old, playing with the group through the release of 2000's "Pay Attention."
