We all know: record labels have not had it easy over the last 10 years, we know also that we can discover many artists who are not signed to a label, but but but.. how many artists would we have missed out on without the courageous pioneering and dedicated work of A&R people?

Let's see what these people have to say about their work; Seymour Stein, Sire records who discovered and signed a large range of significant artists such as the Ramones, Madonna and Ofra Haza and Chris Eckman of WOMEX 14 Label Award winner Glitterbeat will give us their perspectives and stories.
