London-based Cooking Vinyl has named Jason Fisher VP of promotion. Based in New York, Fisher will help Cooking Vinyl grow to a full-service indie in the United States. Fisher previously worked in the promotion department at New York-based Or Music.
Cooking Vinyl has new albums from the Church, Michael Messer and the Buzzcocks due this year. The label’s releases are handled in the States by Koch Entertainment Distribution.
While most of the label’s successes last year came from such veteran acts as Killing Joke and Echo & the Bunnymen, label head Jeremy Morrison says Cooking Vinyl is on the prowl for new artists.
