Dallas Martin will be running the Asylum Records imprint going forward. Warner Music Group said on Thursday that Martin will oversee the label as president alongside Gabrielle Peluso, while continuing on as executive vp of A&R at Atlantic, where he has worked with Roddy Ricch, Meek Mill, and the late Nipsey Hussle, among others.
Based in Los Angeles, the Flint native will report to both Eliah Seton, president of independent music & creator services, WMG and Craig Kallman, chairman & CEO, Atlantic Records.
Commenting on the appointment, Seton praised Martin’s "unflinching commitment" to his artists and described him as the "consummate A&R" who is "not only able to spot great talent but nurture that talent by spending endless hours in the studio crafting hit records. That’s exactly the sort of artist-first philosophy that we’re cultivating at the new Asylum."
