Former Interscope Exec Tim Glover Joins Pulse Records as President, A&R

A&R veteran Tim Glover is named as president of A&R, Pulse Records, Billboard can confirm.

Glover joins the team from Interscope Geffen A&M, where he served as executive VP of A&R since 2022, and held the position as senior vp of A&R before that.

In his new role, announced today (Feb. 21), Glover works specifically on the Pulse Records division of Pulse Music Group, the umbrella company, and reports jointly to Scott Cutler, co-CEO of Pulse Music Group; Josh Abraham, co-CEO of Pulse Music Group; and Ashley Calhoun, president, Pulse Music Group.

During his time at Interscope, Glover was the point person for the label’s partnerships with Dreamville — which has included such artists as J. ColeJID and Ari Lennox, among others — and LVRN, including Summer Walker and 6LACK, as well as working with Tierra Whack and more than a dozen other artists at the label.

“Tim’s creative ability has led him to sign and work with some of the world’s top recording artists,” reads a statement issued jointly by Abraham, Cutler, and Calhoun. “We want our artists at Pulse Records to work with the very best in executive talent and Tim will be a key part of the team as we continue to build.”

The experienced recruit joined Interscope in 2014, was promoted to senior vp in March 2019, and in 2021 was named to Billboard’s 40 Under 40 list of trailblazing young executives in the music business.

At Pulse, Glover will continue to A&R select projects with Interscope, a rep tells Billboard.  

Launched in June 2023, Pulse Records is a part of Concord Label Group and is distributed through the company’s longtime relationship with Universal Music Group.

Since then, Pulse Records formed an artist development joint venture with ISO Supremacy, the new record label founded by platinum recording artist and Pulse Music Group publishing client, Brent Faiyaz. Through that arrangement, Pulse and Faiyaz signed Tommy Richman to Pulse Records.

Also, Pulse Records recently signed New Zealand-born, South African artist 9lives, a leader in the Sigilkore scene, a rap subgenre which blends cloudrap, hyperpop, and electronic, working with the likes of Trippie Redd, Rico Nasty, JELEEL!, Kanii and Odetari.

The Pulse team “is synonymous with artist creativity, artist development, building a strong creative community, and they go out of their way to customize their A&R strategies to the unique needs of each and every artist,” comments Glover in a statement announcing his appointment. “I look forward to big things ahead.”
