Anthony Hippsley has been appointed the new creative A&R manager at Bucks Music Group.

The talent manager will take on a dual role at the independent publisher, becoming the new creative A&R manager alongside running Bucks Music Management.

Bucks Music Group’s director of creative A&R, Sarah Liversedge Platz, said: ‘Ant is a real asset to the company and has done a great job leading Bucks Music Management.

‘He is a natural when it comes to working creatively with artists, producers and songwriters – he understands their day to day needs and helps champion their ambitions.

‘This wider A&R role will complement his management duties perfectly and allow us to service the talent across our existing rosters even more completely.’

Since joining in 2016, Hippsley has signed six new clients to the Bucks Music Management roster and been instrumental in producer/writer Jordan Riley signing a publishing deal with BMG.

Hippsley replaces Harri Davies in the role.

The news follows last week’s announcement that the publisher has partnered with Absolute Label Services to provide a neighbouring rights collection service for labels and artists.
