Larry Butler To Bill Silva Management

Record company veteran Larry Butler has been named GM of Bill Silva Management.

Butler was VP of artist relations at Warner Bros. Records for 22 years and this will be his first foray into the concert business since his days as a tour manager.

SoCal concert promoter Bill Silva manages Jason Mraz and Margaret Cho among others.

Butler’s hiring follows a sudden influx of record company execs into the live music realm, including Columbia Records’ Liana Farnam (to MSG Entertainment) and Epic’s Harvey Leeds (to Live Nation).
