New York, NY -- In mid-February, we kicked off Behind the Booth, a Booth-exclusive series in which we shine the spotlight on some of the music industry's business-side movers-and-shakers, by interviewing Next Selection exec Richie Dollaz.

A 16-year veteran of the music game, Lucas currently works with such high-profile artists as Rick Ross, Shonie, and Qwote.
