I’ve always admired the work he has done throughout his career and I expect his entrepreneurial spirit and his penchant for helping artists will have a huge impact. We are eager to expand not only in our ability to help developing artists, but also in our efforts of signing more established ones as well. Shan’s experience in these areas combined with his propensity to embrace the changes within the industry and utilize new technological tools as they become available, make him a natural fit to bring the label into 2018 and beyond.”
Shan Dan has the following to say about his new role:
“Over the past decade I’ve become an expert in developing new talent, so I was ecstatic when Outerloop approached me. Mike Mowery and Outerloop have always had the same vision (and passion) as myself and understand how important it is to help up and coming talent reach their full potential. I’m excited to work with such a great team/roster and feel honored to take the reins. Fans can look forward to a very active 2018 release year.”
