Elektra Music Group

About Elektra Music Group

Elektra Records is an American major record label owned by Warner Music Group, founded in 1950 by Jac Holzman and Paul Rickolt. It played an important role in the development of contemporary folk music and rock music between the 1950s and 1970s. In 2004, it was consolidated into WMG's Atlantic Records Group. After five years of dormancy, the label was revived as an imprint of Atlantic in 2009. As of October 2018, Elektra was detached from the Atlantic Records umbrella and reorganized into Elektra Music Group, once again operating as an independently-managed frontline label of Warner Music.


A&R Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 New York City, NY
“I really loved just about all of my experience. I liked being driven to look for the newest undiscovered artists, which is really the lifeblood of what an A&R does at a major record label. I also enjoyed the autonomy and multiple industry experiences I received while working for the company. Most importantly, I formed a ton of great industry relationships.”
