Not only do they embody that independent mindset, but they possess a magic like talent for finding and breaking hit records. I have a long history with Mr. Walk, and I'm thrilled to be reunited with him.  Charlie lives in the future tense.  His swift, decisive style and knowledge of music has always driven me to be better. I'm also honored to have the privilege of working with Monte Lipman for the first time.  Monte's vision, Republic Records, is a modern, evolved music company. There is no better place to begin the next chapter of my career."
