Atlantic Records
Director, A&R Research
Chris Martignago started out as a musician/songwriter, touring in bands for several years before attending Full Sail University for a Bachelor's in Music Business. While at Full Sail, Martignago worked for companies including SXSW, Florida Music Festival, NBC's Million Second Quiz with Ryan Seacrest, Cirque Du Soleil, Disney, AEG Live, Pepsi, and more all between managing/developing talent with homework due at midnight.  Full Sail is where he met Senior VP of A&R at Atlantic Records, Steve Robertson (Paramore, Shinedown, Meg Myers). This meeting turned his sights on the world of A&R where he and Steve still work closely on projects that include Paramore's Self-Titled album featuring the Top 40 hit and Grammy award winning song, "Ain't It Fun” and the highly anticipated 5th album from Shinedown, "Threat To Survival." Martignago now heads A&R Research for Atlantic Records out of Nashville.
