Here's the episode with Autumn House, Director of A&R at Capitol Records. She is responsible for bringing us such acts as Cyndi Thompson and Dierks Bentley.
Before her work in A&R, Autumn worked at Starstuck Entertainment and Maverick Music, where she was involved with publishing. She secured cuts for artists like Reba McIntire, Lee Ann Womack, Mark Willis, and Deanna Carter.
We talked about how songs get cut, from both the song plugger and A&R perspective. We talked about Dierks Bentley and how he got signed. And of course, we reviewed demos.
