Aaron Bay-Schuck Career

Bay-Schuck returned to Los Angeles following his college graduation. Knowing that jobs at record companies had become scarce as the music industry constricted in the post-Napster era, he registered at an employment agency that placed temps at labels. He was assigned a short-term job at Interscope and was quickly hired as a full-time assistant to Martin Kierszenbaum, then the head of international marketing for the label.

Determined to work in A&R, he left Interscope a year later to take a job as an A&R assistant at Atlantic. In 2006, he was promoted to a staff A&R position. His first hits in an A&R capacity were with the songs Shawty by Plies featuring T-Pain, and Right Round by Flo Rida featuring Kesha.

Most notably, he discovered, signed and developed Bruno Mars, who has since sold more than 170 million singles and 26 million albums worldwide.

Following his success with Mars, Bay-Schuck, who had originally focused on rap and r&b, worked with artists of all genres. He was appointed a senior vice president of A&R for Atlantic in 2012.

Aaron Bay-Schuck Interview

In their first interview together, Aaron Bay-Schuck and Tom Corson talk rebranding the iconic label, strengthening its urban foothold and more

Aaron Bay-Schuck: My heart sunk a little when I heard initially that we were going to have to do this. But as we peeled back the onion and learned more about why and what was going to come along with changing the name and the new logo, we got excited. We are, with all respect, saying goodbye to the old and looking into the future of what this company is going to be all about.

Our roster is essentially 25% of what most major record labels are. At this moment, we really don’t have many more acts than the biggest indie would have. We have really embraced the artist-first mentality in our ability to get in the weeds on things the way an indie sells itself as doing.

How would you assess the changes made thus far during your respective tenures?

TC: It’s been fun. But there was a lot of work to do when I got here and there’s still a lot of work to do. But we’ve accomplished a lot, pretty much building a whole new team. We’ve been very fortunate to attract people that were in great places and didn’t have to move. And we retained and promoted some great people, too. All of them wanted to be part of this iteration of Warner Records and help redefine the label, putting it in the position where it’s again the best record label in Los Angeles, if not the world.

We’re bringing the best parts of this great label forward and also what needs to be brought in at this moment in time. The new building — a move that had already been planned for a few years — is a big part of that. As beautiful and classic as the Burbank building was, this building and this floor represent the music business, the entertainment business and the media business in 2019 and onwards. It’s very important to have everybody on the same floor, everybody visible, everybody connecting on a minute-by-minute basis. You can do a loop of the floor in 15 minutes, talk to 20 people briefly and connect. It’s minimized emails and minimized meetings. It’s really super productive.

ABS: Initially knowing that Tom was going to start without me made me a little nervous. It was a new partnership and I’d sort of dreamt of us walking in there on day one and doing this together. But in hindsight, thank God that he came in here a bit early. I walked in unquestionably to a much healthier company than Tom walked into. I was able to just throw myself into the deep end of the company’s creative side.

I was faced with an A&R team of only a few people, maybe three to five people tops, which is way too small. And in seven to eight months we’ve turned that A&R team into a real force of nearly 30 people. Not all of those are full time; some are consultants, some are creatives: songwriters and producers that are part of our staff but also continuing to pursue their own careers. Then we dropped a large portion of the roster to make room for what these 30 people are going to want to sign.
