Caterina Nasr is an A&R Manager at Elektra Music Group (comprised of Elektra Records, Fueled by Ramen, Roadrunner Records, Public Consumption, DTA Records) based in New York City. Originally from Houston, Texas, Caterina’s love for music sparked from a mix of early 2000s top 40 radio, her sibling’s pop-punk CD collection, and 2010s fan girl Tumblr. While going to college at the University of Texas at Austin, she began to pursue the music business world interning at C3 Presents, Austin City Limits Radio, and CAA. Her passion for songs and artist development led her to a job right out of college at Elektra Music Group home to Twenty One Pilots, Brandi Carlile, Young the Giant, Panic! At the Disco and more working on the A&R team under Co-President Gregg Nadel. Her first year at Elektra, she helped sign alt-pop band The Band CAMINO and is now working with artists such as Chloe Moriondo, Brynn Cartelli, Sebastian Javier and more. Caterina’s goal is to make records that are as formative to people today as the songs/albums she loved growing up and discover artists whose talent and drive can touch fans across the globe
