ATLANTIC RECORDS has named EVAN LIPSCHUTZ VP/A&R, reports the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Previously LIPSCHUTZ held a similar post at MERCURY/ISLAND RECORDS, where he spent the past six years.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome EVAN to the ATLANTIC A&R team,” EVP/A&R PETE GANBARG said. “He’s one of the brightest, most intuitive young A&R guys in the field today. He’s got great ears and great instincts, with a fantastic track record of discovering and signing outstanding new talent, and A&R’ing some of the best records of the past decade. I’m looking forward to great things from EVAN as part of the ATLANTIC family.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining the ATLANTIC RECORDS team,” noted LIPSCHUTZ. “I couldn’t be more excited to work with this legendary label and this great group of music people. I hope to continue the tradition of great A&R and artist development that has made ATLANTIC the home to so many iconic artists over so many years.”
