Shawn Barron (US) // Motown Records


Shawn Barron knows talent when he sees it. Since scouting Drake to Koch Records back in 2007, he’s pushed a number of artists that labels failed to pick up before the hype begin. From Wale to Curren$y and even Kevin Rudolph, Barron knew their potential early on in their careers.

While working on his Bachelors in Communications from Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ, he began his journey in the music industry. His last semester was spent interning at Universal Records doing A&R and new media. Two months after the internship, Koch Records hired him for a mailroom position. After scouting Drake, Barron was given the okay to search for more artists.Now Shawn is a A&R at Motown Records
