SPIRIT APPOINTS MATALON AND MORE
10/17/19

Global independent music publisher Spirit Music Group has announced a series of key executive moves within its A&R, Synch and Global Administration departments, following its recent $350 million recapitalization. The company has appointed Nancy Matalon to Vice President, A&R; promoted Melanie Santa Rosa to Senior Vice President, Global Administration; and appointed Tamar Wax to Senior Director, Film/TV.

“We are very pleased to announce the appointments of these talented executives whose passion, creativity and expertise will bring us great ongoing success artistically and commercially. Nancy, Tamar and Melanie embody the vision of the new Spirit Music Group and the exciting opportunities ahead of us,” said Spirit COO/CFO Joe Borrino and Global President Rak Sanghvi.

Matalon will be based in Los Angeles and report jointly to Borrino and Sanghvi. She helped develop careers of recording artists and creators such as Fergie, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jackson, Public Enemy and Echosmith. Prior to joining Spirit, Nancy managed producers and artists, including Brian West and Nate Traveller. Before that, she spent over 10 years at Sony Music, and held biz dev and creative roles at Auddly and Reach Music Publishing

Santa Rosa is based in New York and reports jointly to Borrino and Sanghvi. Wax will be based in Los Angeles, and report to SVP Creative Services Gary Miller.

In January, Spirit Music Group executives Jon Singer and Ross Cameron formed Lyric Capital Group to take ownership of Spirit and secure a recapitalization. Now wholly-owned by Lyric, Spirit remains a strong, independent publisher.

We tried recapitalization once back in college, but failed miserably because our total assets were just a lava lamp and two bean bag chairs.
