Daniel Glass: The 2015 Billboard Power 100
NO. 87

Daniel Glass

57, Founder/president, Glassnote Entertainment Group

Last year's rank: 64

In February, Glassnote jumped from Sony to Universal Music Group for global distribution, and Daniel Glass' track record as one of the most skilled developers of indie talent -- from Mumford & Sons to Chvrches -- earned him a deal estimated to be between $10 million and $15 million. Perhaps even more important to Glass, the UMG pact established a venture called Resolved that will offer support to independent producers and label entrepreneurs.
