Cian Cooper Davies – A&R Manager, 0207 Def Jam, Universal Music UK

I am now 10 years in to my journey in the music industry. From learning the ‘game’ in my early 20’s, I am now focusing on A&R. I signed Young T & Bugsey during my time at Black Butter Records. I then moved to Insanity to manage a number of acts. Highlights include; selling out the Royal Albert Hall with DJ Spoony’s, ‘Garage Classical’, as well as having BiG Heath and Star.One signed to Polydor and Virgin/Positiva. I left Insanity in September 2020. I have now joined the brand new frontline label at Universal Music – 0207 Def Jam as A&R Manager.
