ANDREW GOULD

ANDREW GOULD

Sr. VP/Head of A&R, North America, Downtown Music Publishing

Andrew Gould is Sr. VP and Head of A&R, North America, at Downtown Music Publishing. He joined the company in April of 2018 after working for 5 ½ years at BMG, where he served as Co-Head of A&R. At BMG, Gould played a key role in providing A&R leadership to the then young publishing company, recruiting and supporting talents such as Jon Bellion, Bebe Rexha, Jason Evigan, Max Frost, Lewis Capaldi and Andra Day. His recent successes include placing the multi-format hit "The Middle" with Zedd, Grey and Maren Morris, as well as signing Calum Scott, whose debut album, Only Human, went to No.1 on the iTunes album charts across 19 countries.

With more than 16 years of experience in the music industry, Gould's career began as an intern at Epic Records, where he eventually became Manager of A&R. He transitioned to EMI Music Publishing where he was an early champion of Sia and hit-makers Savan Kotecha, Jim Jonsin, and Toby Gad. Gould is a classically trained pianist and received his MBA from The Wharton School. In June 2017, he was elected to the L.A. Chapter of the Grammy Board, where he Co-Chairs the Advocacy Committee.
