Quartararo Named Vice Chairman of LiveXLive
Loton, Corp.
has announced that music industry veteran Phil Quartararo has joined as Vice Chairman of its LiveXLive subsidiary. LiveXLive is the premium live music video platform reinvigorating the music business with its HD streams from the most important global festivals and clubs. Quartararo, who was previously on the company's advisory board, is known for helping launch Virgin Records America and the careers of such artists as Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, and Janet Jackson. In addition to having held the position of President at both Warner Bros. Records and EMI, he is known as a major defender of artists' rights and a leader in efforts to restore value to music.

"Phil is a seasoned veteran in the music and tech industry and has proven to be a leader at LXL," commented Robert Ellin, Chairman of Loton, Corp. "In his expanded role, Phil will focus on artist relations, relationships with managers, distribution agreements, and global strategic partnerships. We are glad to have Phil increase his commitment to our company and look forward to Phil continuing to expand his role over time."

"Building LiveXLive is a lot like when we launched Virgin. Everything in the music industry had become flat and mundane, and we came to shake it up," says Quartararo. "Despite all the streaming music apps fighting for consumers attention, the pipe between artists and fans is broken. I joined Rob Ellin and LiveXLive because I believe it's giving artists and fans back that feeling of being directly connected to each other."


Soul Singer Sharon Jones Dead at 60
Singer Sharon Jones passed away on Friday, November 18 at the age of 60 from pancreatic cancer. The Soul singer spent much of her life working as a prison guard and an armored car guard before releasing her first album at the age of 40. Jones was backed by her band The Dap-Kings, who famously performed on Amy Winehouse's Back to Black album.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings released its debut album, Dap Dippin' with Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, in 2002. Her 2014 album Give the People What They Want, was nominated for a Grammy. Also, a documentary about Jones, titled Miss Sharon Jones!, was released last year. In 2013, she was diagnosed with bile duct cancer, and the diagnosis later changed to pancreatic cancer. Jones had been undergoing chemotherapy in recent years to treat the disease.
