Providing Day One Support to Songwriters with VP, Creative, at BMI New York, Samantha Cox

This week we talked with Vice President, Creative, BMI New York, Samantha Cox. Samantha is responsible for overseeing the Pop, Rock and Indie team based in BMI’s New York office. She is also responsible for scouting and signing new songwriters and publishers, and maintaining relationships with existing BMI affiliates worldwide. 


Cox has additionally launched several successful programs including, BMI’s Speed Dating for Songwriters®, BMI Pick of the Month, the Annual BMI Acoustic Brunch at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival.


It was great to hear about her climb to her current role, how BMI invests in songwriters early in their careers, and how performance rights organizations operate within the music industry, and more.
