Amanda Ghost to head Epic

Songstress named president of music label

Songwriter-performer Amanda Ghost has been named president of Epic Records in a roll of the dice for Columbia/Epic Label Group chairman Rob Stringer.

Ghost, who released a digital-only compilation in April and most recently wrote songs for Beyonce’s current album, starts Feb. 16. She replaces Charlie Walk, who left at the end of last year and is starting his own company.

Stringer wrote in an email to staff, “In the changing environment of the music business, record labels undoubtedly need to be complete partners with the artistic community, and Amanda will be the perfect executive to meet that challenge.”

Ghost noted, “I’m not a conventional choice as an executive in the music business, but it is testament to the new mood at Sony where content is now king and the music business is being put back in the hands of creative talent such as myself. I’m here to draw on my experiences as an artist, songwriter and producer.”

Ghost also co-wrote James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” and Jordin Sparks’ first single “Tattoo.”
