Wallpaper Signs to Epic Records

Pinole-raised electro-“crunk” singer, UC Berkeley music department alum, and unabashed AutoTune user Wallpaper (who, full disclosure, is my cousin — let’s just get that out of the way) signed to Epic Records. And SF Weekly music editor Ian Port wrote a pretty nice blog about it, in which he notes that Wallpaper — who also goes by the name Ricky Reed — was summoned to the sparkling Beverly Hills office of Sony Music on December 2. There he met with producer Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and hip-hop artist Ciara. He’s been sensibly quiet about the terms of his contract, but seems pretty pleased about it. We are, too.
