Razor Tie has joined forces with AR veteran Mike Gitter.
With a rich history that includes tenures at Roadrunner and Atlantic Records, signing highly successful and cutting-edge bands such as KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, BAD RELIGION, OPETH, MEGADETH and DRAGONFORCE, Mike brings a wealth of knowledge and know-how that will continue expand Razor Tie‘s already burgeoning rock, alternative and metal footprint in the market place.
Razor Tie head of AR Pete Giberga comments, “Mike brings to the table serious AR chops and a level of expertise that we find critical to our success as a company. I couldn’t be happier that someone with his vision, creativity and credibility is going to be a part of our team.”
Gitter adds, “Razor Tie is already a growing force in the world of cutting-edge music. It has an energy and vitality that only happens once in the evolution of a company — and it’s a privilege to be asked to be part of it.” He continues, “I have a personal history with Pete Giberga and SVP of marketing John Franck that goes back many years. There’s a respect we have for each other built out of watching each other careers. We’re music people first and foremost.”
Gitter will take on AR responsibilities that will encompass not merely his skills in identifying talent but all-around aspects of AR, including helping to identify talent, signing and record making. Mike will also be involved with Razor Tie‘s expanding palette of business ventures.
While Gitter has been actively working for labels since 1993, he has also honed his skills as a journalist and artist manager.
Gitter will be based out of Los Angeles, California.
