THREE-TIME GRAMMY WINNER KOSH SIGNS EXCLUSIVE REPRESENTATION DEAL WITH SPORTS PLACEMENT SERVICE

Hollywood, CA —Three-time Grammy Award winner and seven-time Grammy nominee John Kosh, who has been the creative director for some of the biggest and best selling music acts of all-time, has signed on with Sports Placement Service Inc. (SPS) for representation.

Kosh, who has worked with everyone from The Beatles to Jimmy Buffet, from Eagles to Electric Light Orchestra, not to mention creating the logo for Super Bowl 21, has had an illustrious creative career spanning nearly 40 years.

“Meeting John Lennon changed my life, my career and opened the doors for this truly amazing ride,” said Kosh. “I think what allowed me to create the body of work, was my relationships with both the artist and the record labels and the ability to gain the trust of both, have some fun along the way and extend the meaning of the music to the covers. I am looking forward to working with Harlan and his company on a wide range of projects, not just limited to the world of entertainment.”

“When I first met, Kosh, I was blown away by how humble he was when it came to speaking about his work,” said SPS CEO Harlan J. Werner. “It wasn’t until I did the research that I come to learn that Kosh was directly involved with the artwork for hundreds of millions of records sold. Kosh is Rock N’ Roll royalty and to work with one of the greatest ever in his field is a perfect fit and a true honor for SPS and our family.”
