Andrew Gould is Vice President of Creative at BMG.  He began playing classical piano at the age of 4, training and competing until he was 18.  After graduating Bowdoin College magna cum laude in 2000, he moved to Manhattan.  A music industry insider advised Andrew before pursuing a job in music, to head to Wall Street for strong business and finance experience.  Andrew worked for two years as an Analyst at midtown boutique real estate mezzanine fund, Longview Funding.  During this time, Andrew and Gavin DeGraw became close friends after meeting at a small piano bar on the upper westside where Gavin had a weekly residency.  Gavin was soon courted by labels. Andrew now frequently around executives, was invited to intern Epic Records. Beginning in 2003, Andrew worked at Epic for four years, ascending his way up to Manager of A & R.  In this last position, he reported to the EVP of the department, focusing on the label's priority pop acts, and new artist development. In 2007, Andrew was hired by EMI Music Publishing as Director of Creative, creating opportunities across its roster of songwriters, and identifying and signing new artist and songwriter talent. There he worked very closely with talent such as Sia, Jim Jonsin, Toby Gad, Savan Kotecha and Sam Watters, and he signed artists such as Chiddy Bang.  In 2009 he was promoted to Senior Director and moved to Los Angeles. In August 2012, Andrew took a position at BMG.  Here he has signed Chris Braide, Rob Kleiner, and Jake Sinclair, and works closely with much of their talented existing roster, including Jason Evigan, Mitch Allan, David Gamson, Busbee, New Politics, and the Monsters and Strangerz.  Andrew has an MBA from the Wharton School of Business.
