A&R Manager - Decca Records


Danny is International A&R manager at Decca Records, signing and managing his own projects. He has been involved in music for as long as he can remember, being inspired by his parents’ love of music. After playing and recording in a successful local band in and around East Anglia, he later enrolled in a local Music Performance course whilst promoting gigs in his spare time.

Danny studied Music Industry Management at Hertfordshire University and, whilst studying, took on a regional A&R scouting role for EMI and also ran his own new music radio show. Danny achieved a first class degree with distinction, before moving to London where he landed his first job working in music PR. After a year, Danny moved to work at Universal Music. He has worked in the A&R team at Decca Records for 7 years working his way up from an intern, to A&R assistant, to A&R scout to signing and managing his own projects. He currently works with artists including AURORA, Rhys Lewis, The Shires, Sheppard and Gregory Porter. Danny says he feels very lucky to wake up every morning to do the job he always dreamed of!
