For Love Of The Music: Executive Interview With Interscope’s Erika Spieldoch – POLLSTAR
- April 16, 2020
Erika Spieldoch still loves the music. Having been in (and out of) the music industry for nearly 30 years, the VP of Touring and Special Events at Interscope Records still gets a kick out of seeing artists connect with their audiences and knowing she was a part of that.
