EMI Shuts Down Stateside Offices

Staffers at EMI Records in New York
had their fears confirmed yesterday morning as they learned the
U.S. label was being shut down immediately, with the loss of
120-130 jobs. The closure followed a review of EMI’s U.S. operation
by Ken Berry, the new worldwide president of EMI
Recorded Music. The fate of EMI’s roster remains uncertain; some of
the acts are expected to shift to Virgin or
Capitol. Jon Secada already has moved to Virgin,
as have Blessid Union of Souls. Other acts on EMI
include D’Angelo, Sinead O’Connor, Patti Rothberg,
Queensryche, the artist formerly known as Prince, and new
signee Luther Vandross.
