Speaking of the Arts is pleased to welcome Wulf Muller to the show. Wulf is a highly seasoned veteran of the recording industry. In 1999, Wulf became Vice President of International Marketing Classics & Jazz for Universal Music. Here he was responsible for International marketing efforts for all Classics and Jazz priorities worldwide, as well as all local signings on the Emarcy Jazz and Emarcy Classics labels.
In 2003 the role of A&R for the Emarcy Label was added to his responsibilities and it was during this period that Wulf signed acts like Madeleine Peyroux, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Michael Brecker, and John Scofield.
In 2010, Wulf started a new company called All-In-Music Service – a consulting company for the music industry. Universal Music Group International soon became his first client. At the same time, All-In-Music Service acts as the European tour co-ordinator for artists like Branford Marsalis, James Carter, Jane Monheit and Karrin Allyson. In 2012, All-In-Music Service signed an exclusive jazz A&R agreement with Sony Classical International to revive and build the historic OKeh jazz label.
In this episode we talk about the history of the label, how technology is affecting the recording industry, Wulf’s experience working with legendary artists such as Sonny Rollins and much more.
