Former TVT RECORDS VP/A&R LEONARD B. JOHNSON joins UNION ENTERTAINMENT GROUP as the head of the company's new Producer and Songwriters Division. JOHNSON will be based in NEW YORK; the move reunites COLEMAN with UEG's BRYAN COLEMAN, whose clients DEFAULT were on TVT under JOHNSON's direction.
COLEMAN said, "LENNY's affable personality and longtime credibility within the A&R community makes him a perfect fit in the UEG family. We are excited for the opportunity of having someone of LENNY's character and caliber heading up this new venture for us!"
The new division has signed producer/writers ROB GRAVES and ANDERS OSBORNE and will announce more new clients in the coming weeks.
