Paula Sinton, Communications
Falling in love with music can only lead to one thing…a job that involves helping musicians realize their dreams. It was a bit of an accident that Paula Sinton fell in love with music while at Sony Music Canada, but it is no accident that she continues to work towards that goal. With a nose for business and more charm than can fit in one room, she brings a new perspective to the budding careers of talented musicians and treasures the opportunity to provide stability and security in an increasingly unpredictable world.
While working on the team of an obscure young singer from Quebec named Celine Dion, Paula learned from some of the most talented minds in the record industry. Being a valuable member of Dion’s label team whet Paula’s appetite even more. The unique opportunity to study that elusive path to success, combined with Paula’s clever mind and boundless passion translate into a powerful musical force.
The time is right for Paula to use her powers for the greater good, to tirelessly develop artists and create a world for them without financial fears. Paula is a welcome addition to the Real World team!
