Ghost departs Epic job

By | Published on Friday 29 October 2010

So, that didn’t last long, did it? Singer songwriter Amanda Ghost has stepped down as President of Sony Music division Epic US, where she has been overseer since February 2009.

She says she is quitting the label exec role so she has more time to spend on her own songwriting and production work, though she will keep her hand in on the executive side by continuing to run her own Sony imprint label, Outsiders.

Confirming Ghost’s departure, Rob Stringer, chairman of the Sony Music division under which Epic sits, told reporters: “Amanda has been an important creative force at Epic in the past two years. In returning to the natural focus of her artistic career, I look forward to us working together in the future”.

Ghost herself added: “It is has been a real honour and privilege to have worked with Rob Stringer and the whole Epic staff and I look forward to working closely with them on future projects”.
