LA Reid is the Chairman & CEO of Epic Records as well as an acclaimed musician, songwriter, producer, and now a New York Times Bestselling author for his memoir, "Sing to Me".
LA Reid is a rare breed among record producers—not only one of the most accomplished and innovative people working behind the scenes in the music industry, but a celebrity presence in his own right. Reid has been shaping the music scene for more than 25 years. He is the man behind the success of some of today’s biggest stars, including Usher, Pink, Justin Bieber, and Meghan Trainor, to name a few, and was instrumental in Mariah Carey’s 10x-platinum “The Emancipation of Mimi” comeback. Reid has helped change music forever.
Today, LA Reid's Epic Records is on a hot streak, with big singles and albums from Future, Meghan Trainor, Fifth Harmony, Yo Gotti, Zara Larsson, Travis Scott, the KONGOS, and DJ Khaled, name a few. Future, who was just on SNL, had a record-breaking THREE #1 ALBUMS within 7 months in 2015, and earlier this year, Meghan Trainor won her first-ever Grammy Award for "Best New Artist” - Epic currently has three singles in the Top 10 on iTunes (Meghan Trainor, Fifth Harmony and Zara Larsson). This year alone, Epic Records has had three #1 album debuts from Future, Travis Scott and "the King of Branding & Snapchat," DJ Khaled.
