PIERO GIRAMONTI has been named GM of HARVEST RECORDS, reporting to CAPITOL RECORDS GROUP EVP MICHELLE JUBELIRER. GIRAMONTI will be based in HOLLYWOOD at the iconic CAPITOL RECORDS Tower.
JUBELIRER said, "PIERO's experience in the indie world, as well as his years and varied resume within major label systems, makes him the perfect person to relaunch and lead HARVEST. PIERO and his team will build a label where a select roster of original, cutting-edge artists can find strong support and the best of both worlds – the benefits of a dedicated label, as well the clout of CAROLINE and the CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP."
GIRAMONTI added, "First and foremost, I would like to thank STEVE BARNETT and MICHELLE JUBELIRER for this appointment, as their belief in the importance of a new life for HARVEST is making the relaunch of this storied label a reality. HARVEST has always been known as the home of progressive, culturally-provocative, left-of-center, and ahead-of-the-curve artists, and that is the tradition we will continue as our artists and staff collectively write the next chapter in the label's history. It feels great to be back in the CAPITOL TOWER where I started my career in the American music business."
