DEF JAM RECORDINGS has promoted A&R rep NOAH PRESTON to VP/A&R. He will discover, sign and develop artists on the DEF JAM roster, as well as overseeing the creative process of their recordings.
“I have witnessed NOAH’s tenacity and hard work first hand, ever since I had the privilege of bringing him onto the DEF JAM A&R staff full-time three years ago, while he was still attending college,” DEF JAM EVP DION “NO I.D.” WILSON said. “It is exactly that kind of creativity and dedication that will ensure NOAH reaches even greater levels of success.”
"Growing up, DEF JAM was everywhere from music, to movies, to video games, so it was obviously a heavy influence throughout my childhood." PRESTON said. "It’s great to be a part of such a culturally impactful company, especially under the leadership of NO I.D. and STEVE BARTELS. My goal is to help continue to make DEF JAM the premier destination for young creatives."
