Chris Turner is joining Capitol Records as Senior Director of A&R.
He will be reporting directly to company President Jeff Vaughn.
Turner joins Capitol Records from Hitco Entertainment where he was the Director of A&R and where he signed Yella Beezy, Rubi Rose, and Woop to the label.
Prior to Hitco, Turner signed rap group Devine Council to a joint venture with Epic Records.
“Joining Capitol records is like me joining a legendary championship basketball team.”
Turner said: “Joining Capitol records is like me joining a legendary championship basketball team that needed a few pieces to get back to the chip. I was one of the missing pieces.
“We’re building something special that’s about to take this world by storm. We’ve already signed a few superstars. I don’t use the term loosely.
“As far as Jeff and I, we speak the same language in terms of our process. Amazing chemistry. We clicked immediately.”Music Business Worldwide
