Sarah McCann joins Downtown Music Publishing in new international creative role

Downtown Music Publishing has announced A&R expert Sarah McCann as its new senior vice president of international creative.

In the newly-created position, McCann will work with artists and producers represented by Downtown in the US, in addition to working with the global creative team to help overseas acts break into the American market.

Downtown set up an Australian office in 2018, enlisting Rachel Kelly, a TMN Tinnies finalist for Publisher A&R of the Year last year, as its creative director and head of sync. The publisher also has offices in Paris, Amsterdam, London, Los Angeles, Nashville, Tokyo and its headquarters in New York.

McCann joined Downtown after working in A&R at Wide Eyed Entertainment. Prior to that, McCann held roles at Primary Wave, Advanced Alternative Media and Record Plant recording studio.

In a statement Downtown global president, Mike Smith said: “I have been hugely impressed by Sarah’s work with songwriters and producers; she works tirelessly to create world-class collaborations and never fails to add value to a creator’s career.

“Songwriting is more global than ever before, and I know Sarah will do a great job of breaking our international writers as well as bringing fresh talent to Downtown.”

Downtown’s roster currently includes Australian acts The Teskey Brothers, Stella Donnelly, Taka Perry and recent signees Little Quirks.
