Michael Laskow began his career in 1974 at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida. As an engineer/producer Laskow has worked with artists such as Neil Young, Firefall, Melanie, Cheap Trick, Eric Clapton, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and many more.
In 1992 Michael founded TAXI, which has become the world’s leading independent A&R company. TAXI specializes in helping major record labels, publishers, and music supervisors for film and television find new talent and songs throughout the United States and 30 other countries. As President and Chief Executive Officer of TAXI, Michael is in daily contact with Directors and Vice Presidents of A&R at virtually all major record labels, as well as with many prominent independent labels, publishers, and music supervisors working on film and TV projects.
We were also very pleased to recently learn that Michael helped Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Kara DioGuardi launch the original Phoenix House recording studio for recovering teens in Los Angeles.
