PIKUS JOINS WIXEN MUSIC PUB
2/14/23

Wixen Music Publishing has appointed Jon Pikus as VP A&R/business development. He’ll be based in the Calabasas office and report to Wixen President/CEO Randall Wixen, CFO/COO Andrew Wixen and CTO/EVP Jason Rys. Pikus will be tasked primarily with signing new artists, songwriters, producers and catalogs to Wixen’s client roster, in addition to traditional A&R tasks.

Jon is that rare breed of creative who has been on multiple sides of the proverbial fence, so he can authentically relate in any situation, to artists, writers and producers and to managers, attorneys and executives,” Wixen said. “We are excited to work with the new clients he will bring in.”

Wixen Music Publishing’s current clients include Tom Petty, Weezer, The Black Keys, George Clinton, Rage Against The Machine, The Doors, Missy Elliott, Rick James, Jefferson Airplane and Rancid.

Pikus previously held A&R positions at Columbia, Interscope, MySpace Records, Lava Records and Imagem Music Publishing. He began his career as a drummer and producer of '90s L.A. rock bands, working with artists such as Weezer, Crazy Town, The Ataris, Anna Nalick, Pennywise, Christina Milian and Hollywood Undead.

Somehow, JP managed to land the new gig despite having the stain of HITS on his résumé.
