As a part of our Women’s History Month Campaign, HERStory In The Making, we salute Lindsey Lanier VP and A & R at Motown.
The most rewarding parts of Lanier’s career have
involved discovering and signing new talent early on and creating collaborative ecosystems and seeing the results of her efforts has been immensely gratifying. She’s done this with Jhené Aiko & Childish Gambino (“Bedpeace”) and most recently with Tiana Major9 & Earthgang’s
“Collide”—from the upcoming Queen & Slim soundtrack she’s been working on. Speaking of Earth gangs, she’s trained in wilderness survival. So, if you ever need to outrun a grizzly bear or something, she’s got your back.
