WHEELS 2.0 TURNS IT UP TO ’11
New Year, New Music, New Success Story

By Jesse Beer-Dietz

We’re back in the swing of things with a bevy of top-notch talent to tell you about as we roll into the new year. We begin with some great news: While you were enjoying your holidays, Marissa Renee Jack, one of our 2010 picks to click, was quietly signed to Warner Bros. Records by Rob Cavallo and Craig Aaronson. Marissa has the distinction of being the Bunny’s very first inking under the new senior management triumvirate of Cavallo, Todd Moscowitz and Livia Tortella. Congrats to attorney Eric German, as well as to artist developers/managers Loren Israel and Brooke Heller, who continue their hot streak. Loren and Brooke had huge success last year with Neon Trees, and on deck is a sizzling new band they plan to unleash later in 2011. Keep feedin the inbox: [email protected]
