L.A Reid to Head Epic Label Group
From one record label to another.
Former Arista/LaFace Records president L.A Reid will now head Sony Records newest venture, the Epic Label Group. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new label will combine artists from both Jive and Epic Records, including Pink and Usher, both artists that L.A discovered himself.
L.A starts his new gig in July and rumor is that one of the first new artists he will sign are Karmin, the YouTube duo known for doing popular covers. Reid will also concentrate on mostly urban acts. This is all in addition to his new job as judge on the American version of Simon Cowell’s X Factor.
