WARNER MUSIC GROUP is combining digital label CORDLESS with RYKODISC, with KILL ROCK STARS founder SLIM MOON named Sr. Director/A&R & Artist Development for RYKODISC. MOON was previously an A&R exec with WMG's NONESUCH label.
Both CORDLESS' and RYKODISC's artist rosters and staffs remain intact, though CORDLESS President JASON FIBER returns to his post as President of indie label SUPERFECTA, which will be distributed through RYKODISC.
A WMG spokesperson told ALL ACCESS that the purpose of the partnership is to allow CORDLESS artists to use RYKODISC's staff and distribution and to enhance RYKODISC's digital platform.
