Bookmark and Share
Warner Music Group (WMG) announced the appointments of Aton Ben-Horin (@Aton) as Director of Worldwide Rhythm & Pop A&R and Latoya Lee (@MissLatoyaLee) as Manager of Worldwide Urban A&R. In these newly created positions, Ben-Horin and Lee will report to Mike Caren (@MikeCaren), President, Worldwide A&R. The two executives will provide additional A&R resource and creative support across Warner Music's recorded music labels, including Atlantic, Elektra and Warner Bros. Records, as well as its international affiliates. The pair will assist in the development of new talent and existing signings by helping to identify songs, songwriters and producers and co-operating with WMG's A&R executives around the world.

In making the appointments, Mike Caren said, "A&R is an increasingly global undertaking, as extraordinary music can come from any part of the world, at any time. By expanding our worldwide A&R team, we grow our ability to respond swiftly to artist development opportunities and reinforce WMG's company-wide commitment to providing the best home for the most influential and popular talent."

He added, "Aton's wide-ranging experience as a producer, artist manager and entrepreneur will make him a superb addition to the industry's leading network of A&R executives. At the same time, Latoya's energy and instincts will ensure she brings a fresh perspective to our collaborative creative activities."

Aton Ben-Horin said, "It's an incredible time for Warner Music Group, and I'm honored to be a part of this legendary organization. I started as a musician and songwriter, so I have a deep understanding of the responsibility that comes with A&R, and I always put the music first."

Latoya Lee said, "It's a pleasure to work alongside Mike Caren and the amazing team at Warner Music Group. I am passionate about music, determined to support artists in achieving their goals and I'm ready for the challenges and opportunities ahead."

Before joining WMG, Ben-Horin served as Owner/CEO of Plush Recording Studios, and held roles within The Agency's production team, and Plush Management LLC. As a producer, he collaborated with John Legend, Rick Ross and Ciara, among others, and as a DJ has played gigs around the world including Ultra Music Festival.

Lee started her career at her step father's studio/record label, Top Notch Records. Beginning in 2009, she worked in A&R at BuVision/Def Jam, until relocating to Los Angeles in 2012.
