Elwood Legette Named Vice President, Artist and Repertoire, Neal Reed Worldwide (New York Office)

New York, New York, USA -  (May 16, 2014) - Neal Reed Worldwide (NRW) Chairperson Archbishop Cheryle Neal Reed today announced the appointment of Elwood Legette as Vice President, Artist Development for Neal Reed Music Group and its subsidiary and affiliated labels, globally.

A NRW career employee, Mr. Legette has been serving as a vice president with oversight of the booking and scheduling division, where he oversaw the initiation and formation of NRW’s global booking network. In his new position, Mr. Legette will turn his focus to scouting and recruiting talent, both emerging and seasoned, across all genres, disciplines, labels and brands for Neal Reed Worldwide, its subsidiaries and affiliates. Mr. Legette is the first person to hold the position in the newly organized division comprised of the artist and repertoire functions consolidated from the duties of multiple A&R departments across all labels, genres and disciplines.

Mr. Legette, a fifteen year industry veteran, began as an audio-visual technician for American Express in New York in 1999. He then worked for Baruch College in its audio visual department, and finally as an audio visual specialist for Credit-Suisse Bank, New York.

Additionally, Mr. Legette serves as a film consultant and producer of terrestrial and internet radio with credits including African American Women in Cinema, Rock Me TV, and the film production company Jes-Us Productions. He is a consulting producer to the New York-based El and Syl Variety Show, the popular Sharon Nelson Variety Show, and the Tracey Moore show, Conversations with a Spirited Actor.


Mr. Legette first came to the attention of Neal Reed Worldwide when he negotiated a successful partnership between Neal Reed Worldwide and Daisy Kimbro’s home accessories brand Aromaology, based in Palms Springs, California.

Mr. Legette’s second deal resulted in the formation of AngelicVoicesMusic, a subsidiary record label headed by virtuoso producer Vanderbilt Evans Jr, the producer known as AngelicVoices. Mr. Legette was instrumental in the explosive growth of that label’s roster, signing such artists as Don Yute, Pozie Maserati, Entycee, and the Asian rap sensation Ruby Ibarra.  In his various industry capacities, Mr. Legette has worked with celebrities B.B. King, Eric Benet and LeToya Luckett.

Mr. Legette will continue his scouting and recruiting activities which have now been extended to recruiting talent across the Neal Reed Worldwide brand. Concurrently, Mr. Legette will continue in his position as vice president of the NRW subsidiary label AngelicVoicesMusic, and shall continue to report directly to NRW founder and chief executive officer Cheryle Neal Reed.
