Lamb most recently held the West Coast role at Lyric Street Records where he served for five years. His track record also includes time at KMLE/Phoenix. As the West Coast Regional, Promotion & Marketing, he will report to Big Machine Records VP/Promotion Jack Purcell. “He’s an airplay assassin to the ‘nth degree and rounds out the label group’s west coast airplay trio now known as: Loss, Lamb & Lewis with the motto…’play me or your PPM dies’,” says Purcell.

McCormack will remain based in Los Angeles and can be reached at [email protected] and 615-419-1513. Lamb will be based in Phoenix and begins with the label today (8/23). Contact him at [email protected] and at 615-418-0580.


Quarterback Records has hired Bill Lubitz as Director of Promotion, West Coast/Southwest, effective today. “When we started talking with Bill we quickly realized he is the perfect addition to Quarterback’s team,” says Quartback head Chris Allums.

Lubitz comes to Quarterback after a stint with Stoney Creek Records, handling the west coast for the launch of that imprint. He is a 10-year radio veteran, most recently serving as Music Director with Clear Channel’s KWNR in Las Vegas. Lubitz is based in Las Vegas and can be reached at [email protected] or 702-580-6886.
