I am so personally proud to represent Clairo and to give her all the support she needs
Jody Gerson, UMPG
Jody Gerson, chairman and CEO of UMPG, said: “I remember the first time I heard Carole King’s Tapestry. I also remember the first time I heard Carly Simon’s No Secrets and Joni Mitchell’s Blue. I get the same feeling today when I listen to Clairo’s music. I am so personally proud to represent her and to give her all the support she needs from our global UMPG family.”
Clairo said: “Thank you so much to Jody for believing in me, but also believing in this record. I’m so grateful for her honesty, care, and ability to make everyone feel comfortable while they develop as artists. Her attention to detail and to her craft is what makes her an unstoppable force - and someone that I know will be there for me for years to come.”
