As a hip-hop producer, Jacob Capricciuolo went by the nom de plume The Executive, so it’s fitting that when he started his indie entertainment company he would name it Executive Music Group. Jacob Cap (as he’s commonly known) was an artist in 1995 with hip-hop group E-roc (Vanilla Ice dance crew) and officially launched EMG in 2004 that went on to secure a distribution deal with Universal in 2008. Since then, milestones such as the No. 1 Alternative hit with the Dirty Heads have garnered the company such attention other notable artists actively solicit EMG’s services.

With 20 years of experience Jacob has worked both independently and with major labels such as Capitol Records, Priority Records, Capitol Christian Group, Atlantic, WB , Universal and indie-major labels. Over this period of time he has handled A&R, label management, production, radio promotion, and artist development, to also handling the intricacy of sales & distribution by working with EMI, WEA, and Universal Distribution. Jacob has executive level experience in the music business and has managed corporate companies such as Radio Shack & Dish Network's multi-million dollar entertainment venture YMC Records.

Appreciating longevity as the ultimate goal in the music business, Cap doesn’t always follow a traditional model, but also looks for innovative ways to develop artists and create management services to fulfill the individual need of the client. As a result, EMG has developed and/or promoted artists, such as multi-platinum group Alien Ant Farm, 12 Stones with over a million units sold and EMG Billboard #1 at CHR, multi-platinum Australian country act The McClymonts having US touring success with Jason Aldean, Billboard No. 1 so-cal artist The Dirty Heads with EMG holding two Billboard 1's for an independent in history.

Jacob has also handled the release and marketing for artists projects such as Willie Nelson, Vanessa Williams, Ali Lohan, Waylon Jennings, Shane Harper, and many more established or budding artists having current success.

EMG is equipped with experience, integrity, and the reality of the business so as to be able to break the mold of yesterday, create the new foundation of tomorrow, while still being relevant to the industry of today.
