David Stouck named Regional Director, A&R, at Warner Music Asia | Music Business Worldwide


David Stouck has been appointed as Regional Director, A&R, at Warner Music Asia.

His brief sees him oversee A&R operations in a total of 10 markets – China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

Based in the company’s regional headquarters in Kong Kong, Stouck reports to Simon Robson, President, Warner Music Asia.

Stouck takes up his new role after working for five years in New York at WEA, Warner Music’s pioneering distribution and marketing network.

During his time at WEA, Stouck provided strategic advice to the VP of International A&R by leading data-driven research of key emerging artists by market and genre.

Overseeing the Revenue & Repertoire Assurance department, he generated significant incremental revenue for artists by identifying royalties that had previously been misallocated by public performance collection societies.

A lifelong musician, Stouck got his start forming Freestyle Club, an after school freestyle rap program for high school students in the Washington, DC area.

In 2014, Stouck co-founded Red Feather Studios on Wesleyan University campus in Connecticut, a professional recording studio that has been responsible for more than 70 albums to date.

Fluent in Mandarin Chinese, he has also written and produced two bilingual rap albums.

He has also performed as an artist on Chinese national radio. He also wrote and produced three full-length albums for local aspiring artists in his home studio in New York.

“This role is an opportunity for me to fuse my lifelong passions for music and Asian culture, and to help build a bridge between the Eastern and Western modern music scenes.”
