WMG lifting label man

Moscowitz will continue to report to Esposito

Warner Music Group has tapped Todd Moscowitz to oversee its Independent Label Group comprising Asylum Records, East West Records and Cordless Recordings.

Currently the president of WMG’s urban label Asylum, Moscowitz will continue to report to John Esposito, prexy-CEO of WEA Corp., WMG’s U.S. sales and distribution company.

The imprints are designed to create affiliations with indie labels and assist in the distribution and marketing of their acts. East West handles rock; Cordless Recordings is the company’s digital-only label. Fred Feldman, president of East West, and Jason Fiber, prexy of Cordless, will report to Moscowitz.

Asylum has already had success with indie recordings from Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Webbie and Bun B.

Moscowitz joined WMG in 2004 as president of Asylum Records from Violator Management, where he worked with artists such as 50 Cent, Missy Elliott and Governor. He began his music career at Rush Management while attending law school. At 26, he became head of Rush Communications, taking the titles of president, Def Jam Music Publishing, and president, Def Jam Interactive Gaming.
