SoundCloud has a new hire who will keep a focus on the company’s grassroots ethos. Josh Nicoll has been named head of independent label services. He will work out of the London office and will focus on supporting and expanding SoundCloud’s indie music industry connections. Nicoll will report to Lisa Ellis, the company’s global head of music, artist relations, and label services. Most recently, he held a post at independent label and distributor [PIAS].
“It is great to be joining SoundCloud at such an exciting time for the company, working alongside Lisa [Ellis] to keep what’s new, now and next in music on SoundCloud first, and grow opportunities on the platform within the independent music community,” Nicoll said.
