Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) names Gabrielle Peluso Vice President Urban, effective immediately. In this role, Peluso will oversee all aspects of the urban department and its roster of artists. She will be based in Port Washington and New York City and will report to eOne Music President Alan Grunblatt.
With more than two decades in the music industry, Peluso spent the majority of her professional life in senior roles at Def Jam Records, where she guided some of the industry’s most successful artists. After leaving Def Jam as their General Manager, Peluso moved to the Kevin Liles-helmed KWL Enterprises, where she managed Publicity before being promoted to Senior Partner. Gabby holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications/Minor in Music Business from Syracuse University.
Alan Grunblatt says, “We are thrilled to welcome Gabrielle Peluso to eOne. She did a fantastic job at Def Jam working with top notch artists. She is the ideal person to help steer the label through a rapidly changing marketplace.”
Peluso adds, “I started my career at Def Jam, which was an Indie label with a 35 person staff at the time. Once the company grew into a Major, I really missed the comradery that comes along with a smaller group. eOne has the same essence of that very niche experience that I fell in love with years ago. Many great things to come from this label in the very near future.”
