Capitol Records will return to 1750 Vine Street in a few weeks, a location dubbed as one of Los Angeles’ landmark and known as the Capitol Records Tower. The label, under the direction of Steve Barnett, Chairman & CEO, has a diverse roster of artists that currently includes V.V. Brown, Jarvis, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Tinie Tempah among others.
Barnett was tapped to run the company in November, after leaving an executive post at Columbia. “The Capitol Music Group, including Virgin, will play a central role in our creative and commercial initiatives. And there is no one better to spearhead this than Steve,” said Lucian Grainge, chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group.
