Rob Stevenson Lands at EMI

Jul 30th, 2008 // 2 Comments

Rob Stevenson, the former executive vice president of A & R at Universal Music Group who was also one of the people behind Ultragrrrl-branded boutique label Stolen Transmission, has landed at EMI. He’ll be president of Virgin U.S., a position which EMI’s PR people are referring to as a “key creative role at EMI in America.” While at UMG, he signed and developed acts like Fall Out Boy, the Killers, and Lady Sovereign. (Where on earth has Lady Sovereign been, anyway? Her MySpace page says she has an album coming out in “Spring 2008,” although maybe she means the Southern Hemisphere’s spring.) [EMI]

    The Killers and Lady Sovereign were both signed and developed first in the UK. He can’t take credit for either.

    My nana could pick indie label artists off of a BBC One playlist and sign them. Maybe she can be his EVP?

  2. I know i am a bit off subject, but i just wished to say i like the format of your blog. i’m new to the blogegine platform, so any advice on getting my blog looking nice can be appreciated.
