Quinn will give artists a 'place at the table on policies that affect them' on Capitol Hill.
Former White House counsel Jack Quinn has been named president of Music Artists Coalition (MAC), the artists' advocacy group launched last summer by veteran music managers Irving Azoff, Coran Capshaw and John Silva, who will now serve as co-chairs.
Quinn's lengthy resume includes serving as counsel to former president Bill Clinton between 1995 and 1997, practicing law and co-founding public affairs firm Quinn Gillespie & Associates in D.C. In his new role, he will spearhead MAC's legislative and governmental efforts in Washington, making sure artists have a "dedicated place at the table on policies that affect them," he says.
He adds that he accepted the job "precisely because it is for artists and by artists, including performers and songwriters -- first and only, without compromise.”
