Imagem Music have appointed successful music publisher and producer manager Anna Carpenter, as a consultant.
The new role, effective immediately, will see Carpenter work closely with the Imagem Music UK team across all artists and songwriters across all aspects of A&R. She will report to Kim Frankiewicz, Imagem Music UK MD.
Starting her career over 20 years ago at EMI, Carpenter has enjoyed a successful career across both publishing and producer management. At EMI she worked with artists including EMF and Terrorvision, where she then moved onto Zomba Publishing working closely with Jive Records on tracks for key artists such as the Backstreet Boys.
For five years she then worked at Native Management within the 19 Management group, working with their songwriters across a broad range of artists including Eliza Doolittle, Duffy and Kylie.
In 2010 Carpenter set up AMC Management, a writer/producer management company that manages Karen Poole (Kylie/Lily Allen / Guetta) and Matt Prime (Sam Smith/Charlie Puth/Jake Bugg) with the recent addition of Luke Potashnick (Temperance Movement / Gabrielle Aplin).
During this time, she also worked with Warner Bros Records (Cee-Lo) and then Global Publishing, where she held the position of creative director. The latter she most recently signed K Stewart.
Kim Frankiewicz, Imagem Music UK MD commented: “I’ve known about Anna for quite some time and when our paths crossed at a recent event and we got properly acquainted, I knew pretty quickly that Anna would make a huge contribution to our team! Across all aspects she has a brilliant approach”.
Carpenter, added, “I’m really impressed by Kim and the Imagem team. The mix of both established and new artists creates a really vibrant atmosphere so I am really looking forward to getting stuck in”.
