Stringer

Chairman

Stringer continues to advance talent-friendly initiatives, making headlines in June with the company’s Artist First campaign, in which the unrecouped debts of pre-2000 artists are waived, allowing them to collect royalties. Sony upped its annual talent investment by 158%, and new acts signed have doubled the last four years, with Sony’s roster increasing by 59% in that span. Innovation continues in new brand affiliations, too, like the Madison Beer Immersive Reality Concert Experience with TikTok and Roblox events for Lil Nas X and Zara Larsson. Those initiatives helped make Sony the only major to gain market share in 2021, but so did the year’s most anticipated album, Adele’s “30,” which became the biggest 2021 seller in just its first week. Sony Music has contributed $25 million to more than 300 causes in 60-plus countries through Sony Corporation’s $100 million Global Social Justice Fund. Ahead of the 64th Annual Grammys, Stringer will be honored by the The Recording Academy with its 2022 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons award.
