A&R WORLDWIDE has announced the formation and launch of A&R WORLDWIDE JAPAN. The A&R WORLDWIDE JAPAN operations will be overseen by MUSIC SOLUTIONS President/Co-Founder SEBASTIAN MAIR, a well-respected music consulting and brand development company based in JAPAN. MAIR started his music industry career in CANADA before relocating to TOKYO in 1996.
A&R WORLDWIDE will work closely with MUSIC SOLUTIONS to provide its clients with opportunities in markets via A&R WORLDWIDE’s broad range of relationships and insight into territories outside of JAPAN.
"It’s very exciting to be working with SEBASTIAN, someone whom I trust and respect greatly," states A&R WORLDWIDE President/Founder SAT BISLA. "After many meetings and discussions over the past few years it was evident that we were destined to work together. We are delighted to have a formal presence in JAPAN and the opportunity to work with someone as experienced and respected as SEBASTIAN, both in JAPAN and in the West. ASIA is a very important market for A&R WORLDWIDE and its clients. Having a real insight and formal presence in Japan on a daily basis will help us capitalize on the real opportunities this market has to offer. SEBASTIAN knows the JAPANESE market exceptionally well and, undoubtedly, this mutually beneficial partnership will reap many positive outcomes for all involved. Today’s climate, though challenging for some, is a real opportunity for those with a clear understanding, vision and grasp of the global music market."
