UMPG'S GOT A JONES
2/15/17

UMPG has tapped Walter Jones as VP Creative, reporting to EVP/Head of West Coast A&R David Gray. Jones, formerly VP of  Urban A&R at Sony/ATV, will relocate from NYC to L.A. for the gig. His prior signings included Alessia Cara, G-Eazy, A$AP Rocky and Kid Ink. He’s also worked closely with producer/artist/writers DJ Camper (Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, John Legend), and August Rigo (Justin Bieber, One Direction, Chris Brown).

“I’m a big Walter Jones fan,” says UMPG topper Jody Gerson. “I love his passion for music and his deep relationships with the artist community. I am supportive of his growth as an executive and can’t wait to see what he achieves with us at UMPG.”  

“As an experienced A&R executive who’s well-known for his great ears and ability to spot and nurture writers, Walter Jones is going to be a fantastic addition to our global team. I’m really pleased he’s joined the company,” said Gray.

Jones expressed his excitement and thanked Gerson, Evan Lamberg and Gray for the opportunity.
