Sony Music at the A&R and Women In Music Awards 

This year’s Music Business Worldwide A&R Awards took place in central London, with Sony Music UK’s Chris Briggs taking home A&R of the Year in the Adult Contemporary category.

Chris has had an incredible year of success, with Joy Crookes‘ debut album Skin receiving a Mercury Prize nomination and Robbie Williams scoring his 14th UK No.1 album with XXV.

Cat Burns was also honoured at the event, picking up Song of the Year for her Platinum-certified hit ‘Go’.

Held in association with Abbey Road Studios, the A&R Awards recognise and celebrate the best creative executives working in the UK music industry.

The prestigious Women in Music Week Awards also took place last week. Held at the Park Plaza Westminister Bridge, the awards honour the achievements of game-changing musicians and executives in the industry. 

The Rising Star Award was presented to Charlotte De Burgh-Holder, Director of Commercial Analytics. Her crucial role helps Sony Music’s label and digital partnership teams decipher the wealth of data delivered by their partners, translating insights into actionable recommendations to elevate our iconic roster of artists. 

She has helped curate a specialist program designed to educate executives and peers across the industry about the value of data and demystify the wealth of information available. She has also worked closely with the Official Charts Company, the BPI and the BRIT Awards on a variety of projects which have helped to shape British music.

De Burgh Holder was recently appointed as chair of the Official Charts company, becoming the youngest and first ever female chair in Official Charts history.

Congratulations to Chris Briggs, Cat Burns and Charlotte De Burgh Holder on their much-deserved awards.
