Patrick Clifford has been named vice president of A&R at Ten Ten Music Group.

He is also responsible for exploiting the company's catalogue in markets outside Nashville.
"Patrick's impressive career as a key A&R executive at major labels in both New York and Los Angeles made him an obvious choice for the newly created position," Barry Coburn stated.
Clifford has had key positions at Nemperor Records (signed The Romantics), Epic Records, A&M Records (signed Blues Traveler, The Neville Brothers and Aaron Neville), Chrysalis Records, Capitol Records (signed Foxy Brown) and most recently spent 10 years as VP A&R at BMG/RCA Label Group in LA and NY.
