This year’s awards was another hugely oversubscribed celebration of industry talent. Winners at the ceremony included EMI in the Record Company category.

At the time, EMI co-president Rebecca Allen described the win as “utterly brilliant, and very, very special… Definitely a career highlight for me.”

“I am over the moon for us all to have won label of the year,” said EMI co-president Jo Charrington. “We’re ambitious for our artists and executives and winning this award definitely sets the tone for our future together.”

Atlantic triumphed in the A&R category in 2023.

“Ed [Howard] and I encourage a very collaborative approach,” said co-president Briony Turner following the victory. “This is the third time we’ve won this award over the past 10 years, which hopefully speaks to a consistent approach to signing, developing and sustaining artists.”

“Briony and I have worked hard to foster the strong A&R tradition within Atlantic and to maintain a team full of passionate and driven young execs,” said co-president Ed Howard. “Their energy, dedication and commitment to our artists is inspiring and we are incredibly proud to see their hard work recognised with the Music Week Award.
