Sony Music Breaks Silence on Kesha & Dr. Luke


For the first time since a ruling in its favor last Friday in a request by the pop singer Kesha to be released from her contract, Sony Music has publicly addressed the furor over a situation both legal and ethical that many — including her fellow artists — have characterized as career imprisonment.

Two years later, RCA/Jive CEO Barry Weiss left that company for Universal Music Group (he’s since moved on from UMG), which prompted the dissolution of RCA/Jive and the shuttling, yet again, of Kesha’s contract to Kemosabe Records, a new Sony Music subsidiary set up in the wake of RCA/Jive’s demise.
