LITWIN JOINS HALLWOOD AS EVP

Neil Jacobson's Hallwood Media has added well-respected creative Cory Litwin as Executive Vice President. Litwin joins the new writer-producer-management company with a hip-hop leaning roster, bringing along clients Murda Beatz ("Motorsport, "Nice For What"), Murda Gang, Daysix & Zypitano ("Rags2Riches"), Tyler Armes, JJ Stevens and more. 

Litwin's hip-hop clientele adds to Jacobson's hitmaking roster of Jeff Bhasker, David Stewart, JR Rotem, Jim "E" Stack, Beach Noise and Brendan O'brien, among others. Hallwood just achieved its first #1 for Stewart's work on BTS' "Dynamite."

"Watching Cory build his business over these past few years has been incredible," shared Hallwod CEO Jacobson. "Cory is the rare combination of a brilliant manager and a natural A&R. As an executive, he will help lead this company through the great boom in the songwriter and producer space that we are so lucky to be well positioned for."

 

Litwin got his start promoting and producing large-scale events in his hometown of Toronto—including Drake’s first-ever live concert in 2009 and The Weeknd’s first large-scale show in 2011. After being introduced to Murda Beatz in 2014, Litwin formed 2wenty 2wenty Music Group with the producer as his first client and built the firm into one of hip-hop’s leading creator management companies. 

 

Pictured above, Neil welcomes Cory to the office where they stream "Dynamite" every 15 minutes.
