RECORDS, the newly-formed independent record label partnership between BARRY WEISS and SONGS MUSIC PUBLISHING, has made a new addition to its burgeoning promotional team adding JOHN STRAZZA, most recently the SVP/Promotion at RCA RECORDS to spearhead EAST COAST efforts.
STRAZZA will work out of the company’s NEW YORK office. STRAZZA has many years of music industry experience, including stints at COLUMBIA’s Radio Promo department, where his career began, as well as VP/Top 40 Radio Promo for JIVE RECORDS.
“I’m really excited to be reuniting with JOHN,” said BARRY WEISS. “Besides being a great record and promotion executive, his entrepreneurial spirit -- born out of our time at JIVE RECORDS together -- suits our forward-thinking independent vision at RECORDS.”
“I am thrilled to be reunited with my former boss and mentor, BARRY, for this next chapter of my career, and would like to thank MATT PINCUS and RON PERRY for their support as well,” said STRAZZA. “RECORDS reminds me of the same type of label that JIVE RECORDS was when it started, and that independent mindset, along with the good, smart people here that want to win are the perfect ingredients to create a powerful and successful label. It was that notion that made me feel this was the company I wanted to be with and help grow to the next level.”
