Changes at Capitol Studios: Consolidation, Layoffs, New Role for Studio Manager Paula Salvatore


The historic Capitol Studios in Hollywood, home to recordings by Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bob Seger, Tony Bennett,  Ray Charles and thousands of other artists, is undergoing some major changes.

Among the moves is consolidating administration services across all of the North American studios. Parent company Universal Music Group operates three studios in Los Angeles, one in Nashville, one in New York and at least one each in Canada and Mexico.

That switch led to a shift in roles for longtime vp/studio manager Paula Salvatore, who recently celebrated her 30th year with the studio. A source says Salvatore, who could not be immediately reached for comment, will continue working with the studio in a different capacity still to be announced. As word spread of Salvatore’s departure as studio manager (without word of her new role) after legendary recording engineer Al Schmitt posted the news on Facebook, the outpouring of affection for the beloved Salvatore from artists, session musicians, composers and industry recording personnel resulted in several hundred posts singing her praises.
