NEW SOUNDS AT THE TOWER

Artist manager Solomon Sounds, whose clients included the late XXXTENTACION, has joined Capitol Records as Senior Vice President of A&R. He reports to Capitol Music Group Chairman & CEO Jeff Vaughn.

Based in New York, Sounds will sign and develop artists for the company as well as oversee recording projects for new and established Capitol artists.

“Solomon’s proven instinct for identifying impactful artists and his ability to nurture their creativity aligns perfectly with our mission at Capitol,” Vaughn said. “His successes to date reflect our shared commitment to artists from all corners of the pop music landscape, which is more dynamic and diverse than ever.”

Sounds previously spent 10 years managing artists through his company and label Sounds Music Group. He managed XXXTENTACION and his estate after the artist's death in 2018, overseeing the creative process and release of two posthumous albums, Skins in 2018 and Bad Vibes Forever in 2019.

After a brief hiatus from the music business following XXXTENTACION's death and a joint venture with Republic Records in 2018, Sounds resumed managing artists, including StaySolidRocky, and secured deals for rappers ppcocaine, Cochise, 645Ar and BFB Da Packman.

Early on, Sounds worked at Columbia, RCA and Decca.
