Al Risi

Founder, Head of Music Supervision & Licensing,

Al’s music career officially began at Universal Music Group in

1992 as an intern. He was able to quickly convert that opportunity into a job. During his 7 years with the company he helped develop the careers of Beck, Eminem, Counting Crows, Blink 182 and Weezer to name a few. His 12-year run on the label side ended at EMI owned Higher Octave Music where he served as Product Manager overseeing all marketing activity for the label.
