Lanark Records announces that The Hooters' drummer David Uosikkinen has joined their team as GM. Uosikkinen will join the company working on day-to-day operations for the label. The job brings him back to something he is very familiar with, having run his own label and also taps into his experience at MP3.com, where he worked as a content manager and music director, managing pop and rock genres. Based in Lancaster, PA, Lanark is an independently owned label that specializes in pure rock n’ roll, rockabilly and roots music. The news comes just days after the latest release of Uosikkinen’s own single A Woman’s Got The Power featuring Patty Smyth of Scandal, on Uosikkinen’s In The Pocket (songsinthepocket.org).
